“A real gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This unassuming place is tiny- sitting right up next to your dining neighbor is the only drawback (if you consider that one). Everything else is perfect. The food was very fresh and tasted amazing. The mango sticky rice for desert is a must have.

“Discovered by chance but am glad that I did”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Interesting menu pleasant atmosphere great service. I am not an experienced Thai food eater, nor have I been to Thailand but I enjoyed the food I had a crab and pork over Thai noodle dish that was delicious and a beef with turmeric that was extra spicy, and I had ordered the medium spice but it was also delicious. I especially liked the sticky rice desserts which I had several

“So good, i came back many more times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

They do delivery, so if you dont want to wait outside the restaurant for abt 30-60mins, best to call for delivery.

Food is excellent. Loved the dry noodles with crab and shrimp, duck noodles, fried spring roll (starter), basil pork, thai iced tea!

Beef noodles: Soup was really salty.

“Average Thai food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I am yet to get amazing Thai food similar to that of Thailand. After reading the reviews I was hoping this would come close. Sadly, while the food was fine, it was still not anything close to the real thing. Will keep searching!

“Cute and tasty hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

We had to wait 40 minutes for a table on a Tuesday night. The food was good, but I've had better Thai food. We loved to atmosphere; very local and quaint.
