We discovered this place, only to learn from many other people in town that they love this place too! We've been here more than a dozen times and never been disappointed. The Pad Thai is awesome, and we've tried all the Curries and loved all of them. The service is attentive and friendly. Also very freeway close for meeting up... More

I phoned in an order of chicken paid Thai to go. Flavor was alright but the chicken was chewey. Pretty easy to get on and off of the freeway though. May try it again because of the location. We'll see.

This is the second time that after I ate lunch I had severe stomach cramps and had to rush to a local restroom. I will give the benefit of the doubt to a place but twice in a row?? I eat at other Thai places with no problem! Staff very friendly and accommodating but-----

The lunch menu was great, about seventeen selection with the meat of your choice or veggi if you prefer. More food than you need but it was... More

The food is very good, we are regulars and usually order the Yellow Curry. Their spice level is on the low end, so you have to order higher on the scale (0-10) if you like spicey. The location is along a main street into Escondido and just off the main freeway (15). Atmosphere is of a strip mall like restaurant.... More

The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent, plentiful and arrived quickly. The restaurant is easily located and there is plenty of parking. I ordered the Pad Thai with shrimp - lots of shrimp!!! An excellent choice if you like Thai food!

So I'm basing this review on the food alone since my husband picked it up and brought it home for me. Their Tom Kah soup was sooooo delicious. Just perfection. It had the perfect amount of vegetables and ratio of coconut milk to lemongrass & lime. Mmmmm. I also had the chicken pad Thai which was so yummy too. Will... More

We stopped at this place as a last minute choice while in the area. It was a Friday evening so the restaurant was full but they found a spot to seat us right away. The menu offers many affordable options. The food was delivered fast and steaming hot. Both our dishes were delicious and we would return here again. Would... More
