Thai food is my favorite so I try to go to a Thai restaurant in every city I go to, and so far this place has the best food I've tried in Texas. The atmosphere can be improved a bit as it's a bit dark...inside. But the food makes up for it. Tom yum soup is to die for! And any curry you try is going to be so good. They have a lunch special which is fairly priced. The lady (I'm assuming is the owner) is also very nice. A must go to place if you're in Austin!More

Always good ... and the various hot pots are really enough for two meals ... so plan to take some of your dinner home for the next day. Pork egg rolls tasty too on a recent visit. Perhaps among the least dining atmosphere restaurants in...town. So, don’t go for romance, go for the food. Reasonable prices too in my opinion.More

A Thai restaurant may not be a go-to for hot pot, but they offer great individual hot pots with plenty of ingredients at a very reasonable price. I'd definitely recommend.

Lunch With Five Adults and Two Toddlers. Seafood and salmon hot pots both delicious and a good value. Pad Thai just okay according to the others in attendance. Same okay comment for the chicken fried rice. Nice venue. Good service.

We stumbled upon this quaint little hole in the wall place after a doctor visit three years ago, and fell in love with the food. Upon a return trip to the doctor, we sought this place out. It was busier than ever. The food was...still awesome, and we even noticed a few new menu items. We plan to make this our go to stop and eat place every time we need to see the doctor in Austin.More

Dinner with 10 others. Chicken egg roll and veggie wrap appetizer with peanut sauce to start. All hot pot entrees. All very good, large portions, tasty noodles, veggies, and proteins.

First time ordering and have to say I was quite disappointed in the authenticity of the dishes. Very “Americanized” to say the least. The lemongrass that the add are in tough stalks that you have to pick around because they are inedible. We tried 3...different dishes and all tasted almost identical but with different textures. This is one of those that we tried, but won’t return.More

My family randomly walked into this place after the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. Wow, what a delicious place in a very unassuming storefront. The hot pots were to die for and we all ordered different varieties. Incredibly tasty egg rolls. Fantastic...pad Thai. We will be back and soon! Thank you for an outstanding meal.More

First my delivery was left at my hotel room door, no one knocked and I didn’t receive a notification from Uber eats that it had been delivered. I ordered the shrimp pad Thai it was ok, definitely not the best I have ever had. I...also had the chicken coconut lemon grass soup it was pretty watered down and only had a few mushrooms and fewer pieces of chickenMore

We love Thai food, and are always on the lookout for good Thai options. We visited this place recently, and were very impressed with the menu, even though we were vegetarians. This place serves up some really good Tom-Kha soup. We did try the bubble...tea, and they have black and green tea options...The first time we tried it was good, and the most recent time we tried, it was a bit bitter (Heavy on tea leaves flavor?). Not sure which is the good one. Overall, enjoyed the food here.More

Ate here with my wife and son. She had Tom Ka soup. Served in a hot pot, she thought it was delicious. My son had soup and a noodle dish. A bit spicy, but he enjoyed it. I had a seafood hot pot, with miso...broth. Fabulous dish, full of a variety of seafood, and you get to add 8 ingredients. Super good value! Friendly service. Clean. Great food. Reasonable prices. Excellent value. My daughter-in-law, that wasn’t with us, said this was one of her favorite restaurants, and they have a great lunch. Definitely worth a visit!More

This is a convenient restaurant for me and just called and picked up to try. I ordered the Tom Kha soup with chicken. The soup was not as creamy as I would have liked it but that is just my preference. I loved that the...chicken was in smaller pieces. The soup was really really good. I will go back here.More
