We've been going here for a long time. Not a lot of atmosphere here-- pretty basic but the food is really, really good. The service is also good and food is always ready pretty fast, even with a large group. One of the few restaurants...More

Went to Elgin for the Farmer's Market and found this restaurant on our walking adventure. Authentic thai food--we got take out. I got the green curry, my hubby got pad thai (as always). I steal a few bites of his pad thai--it was good, but...More

The best Thai food of all the places we go to locally. This is a wonderful family that makes everything fresh to order. That however slows things down. The service is not fast by any means. We ordered Chicken Penang and basil chicken. Perfect spice...More

The food is not only not spicy - which is to be expected in the Midwest - it's not even very tasty. Service was slow, particularly getting the check when we wanted to leave.

The selection of food here is very good, and I've like everything I've ever had. I've been there several times and always had wonderful service. The last time though, the waiter barely paid attention to us, brought out the wrong food, and was almost rude....More

The food here is excellent, but the night we went we were with a very large party and it was difficult for the kitchen to get our food out all at the same time. I'd like to go back again sometime with a smaller party....More

I picked up Friday night takeout for the family and was very impressed with their friendliness, great customer service, and amazing food! We had the ginger shrimp, Bangkok curry noodles with tofu, sesame chicken, and pineapple fried rice. I really wish I had leftovers for...More
