“Very Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We were back last weekend it was very poor. The food is inconsistent and so is the wait staff. We will not be back and time soon.

“inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Amy's used to own this- food is abit inconsistent as it was in the old Amy's Thai. I love Thai food but tend to drive much farther into Mechanicsburg for Bangkok Wok as the quality is consistently better.

“Fine Thai restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We have visited this restaurant for many years, it changed management (and maybe chef also) within the last year or so, the menu is moderately varied, in our experience it is well prepared Thai food, not adventurous - but that is because Central PA is not adventurous, the wait staff is inconsistent, they are BYOB, seafood preparations are good, the Phad Thai is average, the lunch buffet offers a nice glimpse of the chefs skills, the decor is a bit kitschy and cramped, I would recommend but not for special quiet dinners,

“Great Thai restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I went here by myself after purchasing a Groupon. It was a warm and cozy place along High Street in Carlisle. I really enjoyed the food and service!
I think the summer rolls have to be the best I ever had! Very flavorful and the peanut sauce was yummy.
I had the chicken Pad Thai for my entre, and it too was was really good! I am looking forward to going back again soon!

“Best new Restaurant in Carlisle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

A step up from its predecessor, the decor, service and especially the food is so much better. Management really shows an interest in their patrons. If you like Thai food, then this is the place for you. Don't forget to order dessert and the coconut juice drink. It is located just a block and a half from the Square and a half block from beautiful Dickinson College. When you go there be sure to take a walk around the historic town and college.
