We like Thai food and this place rates among the best in our opinion. For an out-of-towner, it was hard to find....sits in a shopping center near the back away from Noble Avenue. But the food is wonderful.....we had green curry with chicken, rice and pad see ew Noodles with chicken. The total with tax was $19.92. Now how can... More

We had good quality, large portion food in this small restaurant. It's open till 10 pm in the evening unlike some smaller restaurants. The staff were a little distant at first but once we got into conversation they were very friendly. A great choice for something different to the usual American diner.

Some of the best Thai food I've ever had. I love the staff and food. Their place is small and quaint. It is a fantastic place to eat at or for take out. They can get crowded, so my suggestion...order ahead of time.

The food was the best Thai food I've had since being in Thailand. The atmosphere is strip mall, but the prices are reasonable and the spices authentic

My wife and I get dinner take out monthly and since our commute is about forty minutes, we order appetizers and eat them on the way home from work. Great food and service. We've only eaten there once and enjoyed that dining experience too.

Visited here during a trip to Sequoia National Forest. Restaurant was a little smaller than I expected from the pictures. Service was quick and to the point as it was busy here. We had spring rolls as an appetizer and soup before our meal. Ordered the panang curry for dinner. Everything came out hot and was excellent. Server kept our... More

The food is delicious and staff are wonderful. I usually order ahead for pick up but have also dined in. The place is small, good for couples. Hours and days of service vary so make sure you plan ahead. Prices are reasonable. Very yummy!

Thai food is one of my favourites and this restaurant hasn't disappointed. The service is "no nonsense" but efficient and the place appears to be well run. I really like it and am looking forward to returning.
