“Genuine Thai - mostly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We eat here about once a month. If we lived in MtP it would be more frequent! True Thai flavors. The only "Amercanization" being the included veggies. I never saw broccoli when I was in Thailand, but it is certainly an adequate substitute for the Thai greens that are more difficult to find. The space is small and cozy. The service is always with a smile. And the take-out option is a bonus!

“Loved the duck!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

I had eaten here once before on a trip to Montpelier (2006) and fond memories brought me back. Still great place for Thai food in Montpelier. I had the crispy duck with spicy-sweet chili sauce and veggies. First rate!
