In a land of seafood emerges this little Thai restaurant that is worth a visit. We eat a lot of Thai, and this place was really quite good. Friendly people, take-out option, and good value. We visit every year on vacation! Casual dining for sure.

Oh my heavens! Pad Thai is to die for. I meet a gf for lunch every few weeks to catch up. I should try something new but I can't! Don't think that you can't get good thai in such a small town because you can. ;)

It adds variety to the restaurant choice in Damariscotta. They have great dishes served with a smile. A little pricy for the portions you get though.

Every meal we all had was delicious. Ginger Shrimp, Pad Thai, Massamam Curry, etc. Great to have another option for dining.

When I listen to families speak about how their children will not try new foods, I must say ours breaks that norm. Today was, "Dad can we go to the Thai restaurant?" Liking a type of food always makes the outing more enjoyable. We tried the Thai ice tea, spring rolls, steamed wontons, Pad Thai, Tom Yum, and chicken curry.... More

Great Thai restaurant. The service is always wonderful and very friendly. It's great for take out and dining in. It can get busy in the summer months, so definitely make a reservation.

Wow, was I ever impressed with this restaurant! The service was great even though they had a ton of takeout orders, they were very calm and making everyone eating in feel special.

So since Maine is statistically the least diverse state in the US, it's definitely not known for cuisines from other cultures. However, the food here is very tasty and a favorite casual spot in Damariscotta for locals. While it is not the best Thai food I have ever had in my life, it is nonetheless delicious and on par if...
