I walked by this place. It looked nice enough. The staff was friendly and seated me immediately. They let me take my time to order. Attentive but not overbearing. Good Tom yum soup and mixed vegetables chicken. Good portions. I was only surprised that no lemon grass was in the soup. I'm glad I ate here. Very pleasant.

Average food, good service. Friendly staff, enough room. Would recommend for a quick meal but not a fancy sit down dinner.

The staff is friendly, the service is excellent, and the food is delicious. The Drunken Noodles were extremely tasty, with just the right amount of spicy kick. You can get your food spiced to your taste from very Mild all the way to Thai hot.

The location was quaint, the staff very pleasant, but the food was mediocre, and I had to constantly shoo a couple of gnats away from my food. Go somewhere else.

Went here for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is very casual, don't expect anything fancy. The food was some of the best Thai I've had. I don't even like coconut soup and it was outstanding. The pad thai was perfection. My colleague had a chicken and broccoli dish that was very good as well. I wish... More

Small but authentic restaurant. The staff was pleasant although on the shy side. The menu was varied and the price was just.

My wife and I ate here in late June. The atmosphere was so-so. We ate inside, which was pretty empty. The food and service was average.

My wife and I really appreciate good Thai food. Some restaurants disappoint with mediocre Thai (have been told that some owners foolishly think that Americans want Americanized (bland) Thai). Top Thai did not disappoint. Our two young kids loved the Satay and wife and I really enjoyed the green and massamun curries. The staff was nice and got the requested... More
