Such a gracious hostess and waitress in this tiny restaurant. Not more than 19 tables inside, but lots of people came in to pick up their orders while we ate. My basil chicken was delicious...though I would have liked a bit more basil.

After one too many lobster rolls we started missing Asian food. We were lucky to have found this place. 20 seats, minimal Thai decor, BYOB. Servers were very friendly. They were impressed we brought our own Thai chilies :) We ordered Chicken green curry and a Chef"s specialty Duck stirred-fry dish. Oh man wonderful flavor the duck (hint of shrimp... More

Bottom line: Good/very good food, good dining experience. Went here because it is one of my brother’s favorite places to eat. I really didn’t find anything tempting on the menu, so I did my usual backup of Beef Fried Rice. The place is fairly small, but that adds to the atmosphere. We were immediately seated, and the waitress remembered my... More

I love Thai food and this restaurant did not disappoint. Tom yum soup was excellent. Also had the ground chicken with green beans, onions in basil a sauce which was equally as yummy. My father has the duck in a spicy basil sauce. His only complaint was wanting the vegetables cooked a little longer. Overall, very good.

Stopped on our way through Portland. Super easy to get to off of I95. Great service and a quaint little restaurant near the hospital. Great food and so many options. The basil pad Thai was good with chicken and shrimp!

Both my husband and I ordered the Pad Thai. It was very good. You can ask for a spicy level of zero to four. We asked for a spicy level of two, and we thought that it was spicy enough for us. (They even brought extra spice to your table to add if you needed to -- needless to say,... More

I have been to more or less a hundred or so, maybe more, Thai restaurants. Everywhere from Hawaii to Maine, and I must say this place is within my top three. Cute & quiet atmosphere that makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed- which is what you want while enjoying something delicious. flavorful-beautiful dishes. Mind you, I love it the... More
