“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

We are locals and love the food here. I normally get the pad Thai or Thai fried rice, both are excellent. The peanut sauce that comes on your pre-meal salad maybe the best I've ever had! Parking can be slightly difficult but so is everywhere downtown.

Stumbled upon this restaurant, staff was friendly, place was clean and the food was delicious. Drunken noodles with tofu, want to have it again!

“Great taste of Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

First time eating "good" Thai food. Son-in-law recommended his favorite place & he was correct. We all got something different so we could try different foods. I was afraid of too much spice. Here, you can order mild, medium, hot or extreme. There were various hot sauces to try & some in small doeses were perfect. The famous Phad Thai was delicious as was the Phad See Ew. Other Thai curry dishes were very good. This would be a good place for a beginner in Thai food as well as for a seasoned veteran of the curries.

“Authentic thai food in Asheville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We had a very pleasant night out as we had a great thai food served here.
We waited to be seated so long, nevertheless we had one of the best Pad Thai, ever tasted!
The restaurant seemed to be not very clean, especially the table where we sat down...except for the amazing food, we had some issues since they said that night did not accept any credit cards...truly a shame!
