This is by far the best Thai restaurant in area Restaurant Row and the International Drive area. Not really well known (any time I mention it to friends I have to describe the plaza in detail before they know it's there), but have been dining here for the past 4 years and love it! Always consistent food. I personally love the curry dishes, but their standard Pad Thai is great as well as anything else I have ever sampled off my friends plates when we go. Have also had their appetizers numerous times and never disappointed.
I noticed some of the reviews mentioned service issues. While I have never had an issue with service, I will say there have been a few times no one has been at the door but someone has always come quickly. Your server may change a couple times during the meal, it appears to really vary based on time of day and day of the week as to how many staff they have. But have always been treated with great service and a smile.
Side note, not all Thai restaurants have the "spice plate" as I call it, but as a spice-oholic, I love the four little serving dishes they bring out, three of which are jalapeños, crushed pepper and a chili sauce! Love it! I always order medium hot and add my favorite favors. I'm hungry just writing about it!
