extremely generous portion sizes - two people can easily share one noodle entree and thai tea. the pad thai is extremely heavy on the tamarind, overpowering every other flavor to the point that it is almost inedible (i guess unless you like that sweet tanginess)...- but it is not traditional at all. the pad woon sen, on the other hand, is classic and prepared well. i’m not sure if the pad thai was an anomaly, but for me, if a thai place can’t do pad thai well, it definitely fails the test. moreover, no utensils were provided with a takeout order (nor were they offered). with its close proximity to multiple hotels, they have to know that at least some of their business is from travelers who aren’t returning home to a full kitchen with utensils available. i won’t be returning.More

Was staying at the Marriott close to this restaurant and decided to order take out, I got the Tom Ka Soup and the yellow curry, by far one of the best soups and curry I have had in a Thai restaurant. They were very busy...so it took about 50 minutes for the food to be ready, but was well worth it.More

Normally the soup is not the most memorable part of the meal, but the Tom Kha soup here is THE BEST that I have ever eaten in my life. The rest of the menu was great, we shared several entrees in our party of six...and everything was amazing (the pineapple fried rice was a nice surprise).More

This is a fabulous little Thai restaurant. Very popular. Do not be thrown off by its location in a small strip mall. Stop in and enjoy. We’ve been twice for lunch. Reasonably priced, good selection, excellently prepared. Just took a visiting couple from NY who...also gave it high marks.More

Best Thai Food Anywhere. The atmosphere is authentic-thai-rustic; servers are attentive, helpful, smiling; and the food is fresh, tasty, spicy-enough (with an additional spice tray if requested). Favorite meal for two is summer rolls, and split the green curry with brown rice. Second favorite is...tom yum soup and pad thai noodles.More

Found this place located right next to our hotel. Went twice during our stay, once for lunch and then for dinner. Drunken noodles were amazing, probably the best I have had. Great place for lunch. Dinner time the place was packed so we got our...food to go. This place is a MUST TRY!More

Have eaten here several times and they are consistently great. My pad thai is always cooked to perfection and my husband's vegetable dish has him asking me to try to make this at home. Plenty of food for a great price.

We have eaten here 3 times over the last 8 days, which is a statement in itself considering the number of other restaurants in the area. Ribs - excellent. Yellow Chicken Curry - excellent. Appetizers - excellent. Steak Salad - excellent. Crying Tiger - excellent....We will be back in this area in about six months, and this will be our first stop.More

Love it here! This was my second time and it was just as good as the first! My Mom had the wonton soup which was flavorful and delicious. She also had the pineapple fried rice - YUM! Portion was large enough to share and then...we had leftovers! I had the Pad See Ew with tofu and it was soooo good! Perfect sauce and noodles were delicious. My husband had shrimp with yellow curry and was in heaven! Service was quick and friendly!More

I love this place. The food is -- normally -- very good. It is never very relaxing as they kind of rush you out to turn the tables, A usual dinner comes 5-10 minutes after you order and you our out the door in 45-50...minutes, That is just the place so you need to expect it. But tonight we were out the door 35 minute after we sat down. Our dinner arrived in 5 minutes and the waitress kept asking if we were done when obviously we still had food on our plates. Then the kicker was when she came back 5 minutes later and asked if we wanted desert. I said I am NOT done eating my dinner. Finally, they came to take our plates within minutes of us finishing. And two minutes later the bill was thrown on our table. I guess we didn't want desert. This is a a busy place and there were people waiting at the door for a table. But I am not rushing back. Food was mediocre tonight and the service was absurdly bad,.More

It’s “their” - not “there” They have Thai tea, soft drinks, hot and cold tea. You should google their menu for a complete list.
