Such a surprise to find a good Thai restaurant in Poncha Springs! Crab Rangoon was warm & crispy. Great fresh veggies! Very pleasant Thai ladies serving and cooking. Decorated very nicely with fans from Thailand.

What a treat to find such fresh and tasty Thai food. The spices were perfect, vegetables bright green and slightly crisp, and the owner very very friendly. This is a gem of a restaurant, nothing fancy, just very good eats.

We stopped here in a blizzard on the way to Crested Butte and were greeted with the amazing scent of home-made Thai food. The soup, dumplings, tea and pad Thai were all top rate. Will totally stop here again on the way back home!!!
