This restaurant definitely deserves 5 stars for the food alone. Each dish we had was totally authentic, rich in flavor, cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. It's clear however that they need to iron out some other issues and that's why I knocked off a star.
After the terrific appetizers (complementary salads followed by Tom Kha with lots of shrimp, Won Ton Soup with great broth and an excellent Chicken Sate), our first main dish was served almost 10 min before the other ones were ready. We picked hungrily at the excellent chicken curry while waiting several more minutes to get additional plates just to share the single dish. The remaining dishes arrived soon after and did not disappoint. The Angry Shrimp was wonderful and spicy and the Pad Thai was fine.The last dish was a combination rice dish with chicken and other goodies and worked well.
What didn't work for us were the large serving plates on the relatively small table for four. Additionally, the food portions were HUGE! While I recognize that many people may like that, we personally prefer more standard portions so that we can try more dishes. As it is we took home the left-overs, but this is not always an option and I hate having to waste good food.
The bottom line is that this restaurant has the potential to be the best Thai restaurant in Boca Raton; the food quality is far superior to the other higher rated Thai restaurant on Trip Advisor.
