I've been here more times than I can count...for dinner and lunch. It's an absolutely fabulous place! The service is great and the food is even better. My wife and I usually get the same two dishes although we have mixed it up a bit here and there. Our favorites are Penag Curry and the Thai Basil Noodles (Pad Kee... More

We were two families with children stayed for two nights in Tahoe. we had Thai food for two nights and didn't try anything else for dinner!! The food was amazing, it's very nice and cozy restaurant and must try if you love Thai food.

The service was considerate and prompt. There is a lot of seating on the inside and they offer take-out as well! I ordered the veggie pad thai with tofu and there was SO much food. We ordered two entrees, rice, and an appetizer and it came out in the mid-$30s - definitely reasonable!

This place serves delicious food. We went here around 12 pm for lunch and already there were just 2-3 tables empty which tells you a story, seems like a lot of locals prefer to eat here as well. We were there on a weekday so they had a lunch menu which includes a salad with Thai peanut sauce and a... More

Food is ok, have been to many Thai places and other places seems to be much better off. Thai curries were ok, lacked the authentic touch. This place is on the Lake Tahoe Blvd, parking is really tight. Overall this is ok place

We ordered take out over the phone (pad se-ew with chicken). Our order total was $15 after tax. The customer service over the phone and at the time of pick up was good. The food itself was also good. Unfortunately when we were ordering over the phone we had to guess what was on their menu (based on our past... More

Ordered Pad ki mao, fried chicken, 2 bowls of panang curry, pad thai and for dessert....mango with sticky rice and ginger ice cream (which apparently is made locally-I seen it on the menu of another establishment). Food was good, what I expected from a thai restaurant. Portions were decent, we (2 A, 2 teens 13/14 Y) had enough leftovers for... More
