“Love going back again and again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Can't go wrong with any of the dishes! We love going a lot because it's ALL so good! Service is great! Weekend nights can get busy! Good for any sort of visit. Carry out is available. Word of caution, you will crave to go back once you go!

“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.
