Prompt, polite,efficient service. They have an extensive and intriguing menu and three or four nightly specials. The wine list is ample and the two different whites we ordered went well with my curried scallops and my friend's shrimp dish. Salt was used sparingly here compared to other Thai restaurants where I've dined. Price was average but the food was way... More

Nice neighborhood restaurant. Food is good. Service is hit or miss (mostly miss). Still best option when not in the mood for Pub food in Point Richmond.

This was my first experience at a Thai restaurant. New cuisine can be intimidating but I found the food to be pretty good. The space is rather small. The service was pretty quick although they didn't come around to refill our drinks. Not a bad experience for about $20-25 a person.

My partner and I had been coming to this restaurant since we moved to Richmond...6 months ago. The food has been pretty consistent and delicious, my favorite is the Oxtail Soup...yummy, the meat is cook to perfection, the broth is superlight. I believe they cut out the fat as much as they can to keep it light. We love the... More

I love a good dish of Pad Thai and my last night in Point Richmond made me want to get something special. I walked into the restaurant just as they started the dinner menu and ordered my favorite with prawns instead of chicken. All I can say is WOW. This was all the flavors I hope for in a good... More

I've eaten here with friends and family, but mostly I do take out. Their Pad Thai is especially good with a wonderful sour flavor. The Tom Kha Kai, a kind of soup, is my husband's favorite. The dinner prices have been going up regularly, but this seems to be the norm in the Bay Area. The atmosphere is pleasant and... More

We had ordered all the specials, brown rice and shares all the dishes. The food was terrific. Wine by the glass to meet each need. Service was friendly and excellent.

The first time I visited this restaurant was in 2004. I walked past before the restaurant was even open for business and saw a full Buddhist Ceremony of Inauguration taking place inside. This helped me to know that this was the real deal and the food and decor have continued to provide great service ever since.

Great place to meet with friends. Recommend sharing some dishes so you can sample lots of great tastes. Lunch special prices are a great value with approximately portioned dishes. Service is good and the servers friendly. Place is clean and smells good when you walk in the door. Will definitely go back!!

Thank RpII
