“Very good Pad Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The owner is known for her Pad Thai, and it is worth it.
Very busy at lunch...expect to wait for a table unless you get there early.

“Very Good Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I finally found another Thai restaurant in the area that serves good food. The Pad Thai and Kraprow are very good. I think my favorite is Chicken Kraprow. Love their vegetarian spring rolls. Thai ice tea is also good. Food comes in American, Mexican and Thai/Laos hot for those looking for a very hot dish. The service is good, so I haven't found anything that is a negative with this restaurant. It is a little hard to see from the main road (Route 50) but if you see the sign for Picante's it is in the same shopping center.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great Food, Good Service. The dishes were all very tasty. Noticed that Bobby Flay (Food Network fame) had a throw down on Pad Thai and ... He lost to owner-chef Nongkran Daks !!

“Speedy and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Generally pretty good. The service is fairly quick which is useful for a lunch on a working day. Everyone I know who's been there "knows" that you can't trust the heat levels. Two out of 3 visits, a level 3 out of 4 on the heat scale, the food was fairly hot. But once the 3 was only a little hot. So that just adds a little excitement.

“Very good Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

The food is good. Some dishes are complex and some just straightforward. Good service. Average atmosphere I do like that they can make the curries very hot ("Laos hot") if you ask for it. I'd go back.
