I was in the mood for some curry so I decided to check it out. Some of the best thai curry around. I haven't tried their other thai dishes but will check them out next time I am in a thai mood.

This is not a full service restaurant. Order at the counter, collect on the other side of the hooded stove, enjoy great Thai food, on paper plates, and bus your own table. The food is fresh, spicy, and delicious, very close to real Thai food (Lap needs more veggies with which to pick it up, and no faux crab sticks... More

If Thai is what you want to eat this place will satisfy. If you want ambiance, wait staff that expect tips, etc., this is not your place. I haven't met the owner yet, we just moved here, but as with all businesses, the complexion of the business reflects the person running the business. This is a no frills place. Again,... More

The food was alright. We were huffed at when we came in about 50 minutes before closing. When we said we were dining in we were told we had to order at the counter. Everything was fine up until we were told it was time to get out they needed to close promptly at closing time. I also noticed the... More

There is a water literal cooler where you grab a paper cup and grab your own water and the food is served on a paper plate with plastic utensil . Believe it was $8... More

This is an authentic Thai restaurant. Although it is designed for foot traffic and carry out, there are plenty of tables. Pay attention to the warnings about spicing; spicy really mean really hot. The person taking the orders is very helpful.

I wanted to like this restaurant but it was disappointing. The Pad See Ew was average in taste, seemed less in portion size, and slightly higher priced at $9. The soup that came with it was thick with cabbage and red pepper and had an unusual after-taste. We ordered tea (Japanese Green Tea) which was weak after a long steeping... More
