Stop by for delicious Thai food with the perfect spice level....mild to volcano. Pizza is good too. Veggie Rolls are the bomb!

I pickup lunch here often. Lunch combo deal is a great value. Their padthai is one of the best I've had.

I am always skeptical, even with good reviews, about eating in Asian restaurants in small towns. Most of them are really mediocre. This place was an exception - the menu was limited but all the entrees were good. Pad Thai did not disappoint and there was a nice mixed vegetable stir fry that actually delighted. Good choice.

I ordered by phone after been on hold for 7 minutes. I ordered 2 mild dishes with chicken, and when I came home I realized I got 2 spiced dishes with beef instead, with a rice's container 1/2 full.

We've heard about this place from DDD and from their review, so we just got to try it out. We've traveled all the way from Dallas to compare this restaurant to our favorite Little Thai. [ Granted, we did go to Sequoia National Park first before headed to this restaurant on the way to Ontario.] The place is very cozy,... More

OMG!!!! this restaurant has the BEST food!!! I love everything on their menu. We love going to this restaurant once a week, if I had it my way we would eat here everyday. If you haven't stopped here to eat, you are missing out!

This restaurant was visited by Guy Fieri for his "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" food channel show. The food is authentic Thai food and excellent. The restaurant has limited seating so get there by 11:30 AM for lunch or expect a wait (which is worth it). The service is excellent. Overall a great lunch experience.

This is a pretty popular place among engineers in taft. Usually busy during the weekday lunches. The restaurant was nice and clean and had an average selection for both lunch and dinner. I opted for the lunch portion and it came with soup or salad and a fried egg roll. The good thing about this place is it's fast and... More

For a small town, this place exhibited a very delightful experience for Asian diners. The food presentation was excellent and the taste buds were always challenged by the mixture of Thai and other spices.
