A lovely dive in a converted Long John Silver’s. Everything you want a Thai spot to be! All time favorites include green curry with chicken, panaeng curry pork, garlic chicken (add green peppers) and fried egg roll. All dishes can be adjusted to your personal spice tolerance.

Food was tasty (typical Thai cuisine), and I enjoyed the new experience of taking my shoes off when sitting in the booth.

Don't judge a book by its cover! Outside seems a bit lonely, but customers kept coming to pick up orders! Inside the place is very clean! Very friendly, very patient! Food was excellent! Healthier version of topical USA-Chinese version of food, but equally good!

Recently had lunch at the Sandy Hollow location. Waiter recommended the drunken Noodle. I think the name is funny, hence the title. Food was good and so was the service. I'd recommend trying it out.

I'm sure the food here might not be authentic Thai but that's not something I really care about. I forgot to get a picture of my wife's food but she had basil beef rice dish with heat level 3. She liked it but always finds basil dishes lacking in..basil. We had the satay appetizer which was good. The peanut peanut... More

Our service was very good and the meal was delicious. Hard to feel guilty eating sautéed veggies and protein with good flavor!!

I love Thai food and have eaten it all over the US and in Europe. This food is exceptional. It's in a location that you might not consider going to, but I recommend that you do!

Not the best I've ever had but for Rockford it was a nice surprise. They were out of Thai beer so I had to settle for Mexican. Close but not the same. Service was fast and the place was not crowded.

Was in town for one evening in Rockford and didn't want to spend 30 minutes in traffic so I went for Thai. Location isn't upscale but food is excellent! Great service and very fresh Thai! Would highly recommend the soup with lime juice (can't remember the name) as it sounded strange but was really tasty. The chicken satay appetizer was... More
