Service was super friendly, fast, and attentive, especially in refilling water. This is a hole-in-the-wall type place (you order at the counter), nothing fancy, but that's part of the charm and allure — reminded me of my backpacking days. As for food, we had pad...More

We chose this place based on many raving reviews and it was fantastic. It is a small, authentic Thai restaurant with only a few tables in fairly cramped quarters, but the turnover of tables was quick and efficient. The staff are very welcoming, friendly, quick...More

This restaurant is family run, from family out front to family doing all the cooking and cleaning. That's why the hours are what they are, and they close on the weekends. Because they give it their all and they give it all to us the...More
