“Thai Surprise in Farmington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This place should be packed! The dumpling appetizer was yummy and was served with a tasty sauce. I ordered a two chile noodle dish which hit the spot and wasn't overly spicy. My husband always gages the Thai restaurant by its green curry, so he ordered the green curry chicken. Wow! It was out of this world scrumptious! The portions are generous so we couldn't finish our meals, but it wasn't for lack of trying. We highly recommend this little hole in the wall in downtown Farmington.

“Extraordinarily Flavorful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

The ambiance is no indication of the wealth that is contained in the cuisine. Usually overly fluorescent bright and with worn out booths it's hard to imagine the quality of food being as superb as it is. My staples are Su Mai dumplings, Noodle rolls, Tom Ka Kai soup, Pad Ka Pao and Pad Woon Sen. All of the curries are as deep in flavor as they are in history.

“Flavorful sauces and soup but needs improvement almost every where else:”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This place definitely has potential but I'm not sure if I would return unless a few things were improved. The seriously cheesy decor and fluorescent lighting is disconcerting and uncomfortable but it could be forgiven if the food made up for it. We ordered the spicy seafood combo and a coconut based Thai soup. The soup broth was creamy with just the right amount of tangy Thai spices but they used cabbage which changed the flavor and they way over cooked the chicken which was tough and chewy. This dish could be greatly improved by adding a variety of Asian vegetables and leaving out the chicken and cabbage. It could easily have been vegetarian and no one would have missed the meat. The seafood combo was disappointingly small and devoid of enough seafood to warrant even half of the $16 it cost. Most of it was over cooked veggies and a few small pieces of each fish they list on the menu, and luckily, a very good garlic sauce. The biggest piece of fish were two large tubes of fake crab...So... don't over cook your food, pay attention to what's going into it and what's going out to the customer; If you can't afford a make over at least buy some lamps or wall lights and turn off those horrible overhead office lights! A little TLC would really make you worth the money and pack the place! Two entrees and a tea came to $30. Decent service added another $6 for tip.
