I have traveled to Thailand many times and I was surprised by the authenticity of this restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious. It was brought out in a timely manner and the service was excellent! Good portion sizes, surprisingly large for lunch time.

You can get it mild med hot or very hot ! I thought something not too heavy but it does fill you up but not heavy. They have a great assortment on their menu. It's all good. Prices are med range but really worth it. You will want to go back I guarantee it. We get it to go and... More

The salad kai is simply the best Thai salad I have ever eaten. The chicken fried rice is also a favorite. The pad thai is good. I love the Thai ice tea (not the one with cream) and it is very refreshing. What is NOT refreshing is the decor. It is old and outdated. There is no ambiance to speak... More

Always busy for a reason--but despite the amount of people--services is always fast and friendly. I've not had a dish that wasn't wonderful and presented well. Their Salad Kai is the best I've ever had.

I ate here for the first time a couple years back because the service at the other Thai restaurant in Tracy went south. One of the best decisions I've ever made. Sam, the owner is always there. He has a great crew of servers. He has the best Thai cooks. The food has never been good, it has ALWAYS been... More

We eat here often, and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, courteous, and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone who really wants some authentic Thai cuisine.

Sorry, I wish that I could rate it higher. The food seemed about average, the service was very slow and did not seem well trained, and the restaurant itself needed a major overhaul. Tracy really needs good restaurants, so hopefully someone that cares about this place will invest some time and effort into bringing it up to a new standard.

I have the number to this restaurant on speed dial! Love this place! Get at least a salad from this place once a week! Great customer service but the decor inside lacks. The food makes up for it though!!

This is a small restaurant, but big in flavor! Don't come if you are looking for atmosphere. Come here for the FOOD! You really must start your meal with the Salad Kai. The dressing is sweet, but not cloying. The Num Sod is a flavor combination that is unlike anything I've ever had before. The peanut sauce goes with pretty... More
