“This is a wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is our favorite Thai restaurant.... eat here often... and have worked our way through the menu. Never had anything served here that wasn't excellent. Charming atmoshphere... fair prices... gracious service and excellent food... can't be beat! Their soups are spectacular... and we always start with soup... never tried a desert... always too full :-)

We go here as often with friends as just by ourselves... and we all agree... every time... the food is great.

“Highly recommended! Awesome curries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

There are two locations in Oceanside for this restaurant and we went to the one on Mission. Both have the same menu.
Four of us had lunch here yesterday and EVERY dish was excellent. Service was cheerful and prompt. Presentation was extremely attractive.
Two of us had curries from the lunch special. One was a green curry with tofu and baby eggplant and the other a Pa-naeng curry. One was ordered with a hot level of 5 and the other with a level of 6 and you could actually tell the difference! The curry was creamy and felt as if it was melting in the mouth and filled with flavor. Included in the lunch special was choice of soup or salad, made with the freshest of ingredients. The soup, like the curry, had a coconut milk base and was exquisite. Shrimp spring rolls filled with crunchy lettuce, sprouts and mint and served with a slightly spicy peanut sauce that was a hit all around.
Larb is a type of salad I had never had before and was bursting with flavor. It can be made with chicken, pork, or tofu, or with beef for $2 more. Although I did not care for the texture of the finely chopped chicken, the flavors of cilantro, red onion, mint leaves, a touch of crushed toasted rice, and lime juice were so fresh and well blended that I loved it!
The dining room is simple and in a small strip mall, so ambiance is not a strong suit, but the food sure is!
