I haven't eaten much Thai food, actually thought I didn't like it. However, my daughter and mom kept raving about the food here and I was determined to try. It seems to be a family business as a teen seemed more interested in her computer than service...and we did have to wait a bit. (I would call for take out... More

Apparently, people who eat here do not know what real Thai food taste like or these are false reviews by the management. Whichever, everything from the Coconut Milk to the Peanut Sauce to the Plum sauce was watered down to tastelessness. It as an insult to Thai food and I would recommend avoiding this place unless you don't care if... More

I cannot believe how poorly I was treated at this restaurant! I came in for dinner at 6:40 pm. After a lengthy wait, I ordered a glass of wine, and was informed I had to order immediately because the restaurant would close at 7:30. Really?!! I chose not to stay because I didn't want to be rushed thru my meal,... More

Great food here - the owner is a really nice lady who runs everything herself. As a result, service can be a tad lengthier but it is definitely worth it! The food is great and they can alter anything to your degree of spicy. Definitely make time to stop by if ever in Pocatello

The lady who owns this business has zero customer service skills. The hours are very inconsistent as well. She closes shop whenever she decides to, leaving the customers hanging. You think they close at a certain time, better call and check to see if open that day. My husband and I went there once 30 minutes before closing and they... More

This was a lovely surprise in Pocatello. Authentic Thai cuisine, very well prepared, and served in generous portions. The staff will ask you the degree of spiciness you prefer (on a 1-5 scale). I like it spicy and so I tried "3" the first time, and it was wonderful. Not so hot as to wipe out the flavors of the... More

The food was great. We were the only customers for the entire time. the waitress greeted us, and seated us, asked what to drink, and came back 5 minutes later without any drinks. The food came rather quickly, but she only brought one plate, and we were eating family style. I had to call her out from the kitchen to... More

We had lunch here with our client and they have the size to accommodate larger parties. The service was good as there was basically one person running the whole show. I was surprised at how large the portions were which made lunch a little heavy and maybe why I would recommend this place for dinner, and more for family style... More

Ive eaten at many Thai food places all over the country and I have to say that this place has the best pad thai ive ever had. All the other dishes are fantastic too!

Pretty decent Thai Food in Pocatello. Overall the food just seems to lack the spicy savory hotness I associate with excellent Thai. Maybe the restaurant tones the spiciness down to accommodate the rather bland taste buds of the southeast Idaho population, not sure. Some people rave about the Thai food here, but having spent a fair amount of time in... More

Description
When traveling we love to search out Thai resturants. Historic downtown Pocatello, Id has a gem. The owners are so freindly and genuine and came out to visit with us upon our mentioning we visited with him a year ago. Von shows so much love of his resturant. The food is great! We love thai food and find it whereever we travel or at home. The food can be as spicy as 5 or as non spicy as 1, you choose. Try this gem, the food, service and location are great!
