“Excellent Thai in Redwood City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Great Thai food in a cozy atmosphere. Been dining here for years and the food is consistently good. Definitely try the Meang Kum for a starter. The place is small and can get crowded, so reservations are a good idea. Parking is free in the evenings at the Caltrain parking lot about a block away.

“Best Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We love the food here! This has become our favorite Thai restaurant in the area and we go back frequently.
Food: They have all the standard items on the menu and then some specials. The food is very well flavored. They have lots of vegetarian options and can adjust the spiciness to suite your palate. Our favorites are: The Green Curry with fresh tofu, the spicy and crispy catfish, the jungle curry, the papaya salad, the spicy green beans and the spicy eggplant, the Erawan Fried Rice and the spicy basil fried rice. Everything we have tried here has been very good. High marks on the food section.
Service: the service can be either good or OK depending on the staff you get and how full they are. However, all of them try to make your meal a good experience.
Ambiance: The ambiance is OK, they could use a makeover, however, they are clean and basic.
Overall, a good restaurant for food and flavor. Highly recommend and a good value.

“Our favorite Thai restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

We eat here often, both dining in as well as take out. The service is always good and food is very flavorful. There are a lot of good dishes, We love the soups and curry dishes. Pad Thai is a favorite. They ask how spicy you want the dishes which is really nice. We are never disappointed and usually have food let to bring home.

“Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2008

This is a great thai place for lunch or dinner. Great curries, salads, and noodles. My favorites are the green curry and beef salad but I haven't had a dish there I didn't like. Desserts are wonderful as well, especially the fried banana with ice cream and the mango with sticky rice. Yum! The place is usually busy during lunch time so call for a reservation just in case. You can also expect to wait a bit for your dish if its really busy. They also do takeout. Its a small place with all the thai decorations inside and you can't miss the bright pink awning on the outside.
