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!!

Was here with family for dinner and we had a wonderful time! The staff and service was great and when they noticed there was a birthday they brought out a dish of ice cream with candles! We had a variety of dishes and shared with each other and all were very good. It was my first visit there and I... More

They have great lunch specials but I love going to dinner here as well. The Green Mango Salad with Prawns is one of my favorites and you need to try the BBQ pork as well. The curries all wonderful but the duck is fantastic.

I am regular customer of this store since 2005 and I think their thai food is pretty good. However, last time I ordered a panang beef over the phone for take out but ending with some strange beef salad when I back to home. I called the waitress but she insisted I ordered something call Pa-round beef. No apology, compensation... More
