Great place for lunch. Phad Thai was the best I ever had. Will visit again when I am in the area! Service was quick and friendly.

My wife and I took my oldest daughter and her son to this restaurant a few weeks ago. This is a small restaurant with a neighborhood setting. The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent. My daughter and I wanted Thai food and my wife wanted some good comfort food. We were all very pleased and happy with... More

This is a pretty small place in an out of the way area. The menu is on an old lighted board above the cash register like they have at bowling alleys. It is an eclectic mix of traditional diner food and Thai. We didn't have any of the Thai dishes but the folks sitting next to us did and it... More

Hidden location. The locals know it but visitors will not. It's a hybrid southern diner with Thai food specials. I ordered the Tom Yum Chicken Soup. Best I have had. They allow you to pick the spice level. It is s true authentic Thai soup. The wife of the owner is the cook and she is from the east. The... More

Pad Thai was the special. You can have it mild to hot on a scale of 1 to 5 and it was a huge hit with us. The special comes with a choice of desserts so come hungry.

This was our first time to eat here, and we will certainly go back. We had the Pad Thai, chicken fried rice and meat rolls, all were excellent! Excellent meal and good conversation with the owners. If you like Thai food, this is the place for you.

We stopped in for lunch and we're hungry for hamburgers. I had the patty melt and my wife the cheeseburger. Cheeseburger was very average, nothing special to set it apart. My patty melt was good, but the onions were chopped and not grilled the way they should have been. Fries average, onion rings frozen and not too good. Our main... More

Anytime my husband and I are in Hot Springs, we make the drive up to Benton for the best fried rice I have ever had! This restaurant is pretty small inside, roughly 6-8 four-tops. You order at the counter (the owner and his wife are both very friendly) and they bring it out to you. I highly recommend the chicken... More

Passed Sullivan's for years picking up and dropping kids at school thinking it just had southern home cooking. What a treat to find real Thai food in my hometown. Amazing Pad Thai fresh from the kitchen. Serving large enough of me and my daughter. Will return whenever I get a crazing for exceptional Thai.
