The green curry is quite good. We drop in when we want a quick meal. The atmosphere is pleasant and modern. Service can be a bit slow.

The portions are getting smaller overall, plus in noodle dishes there are fewer shrimp and fewer vegetables. To me, the dishes tend to be too sweet. Bummer, because the location is great and I generally love Thai food--so I would eat here a lot if it was better. We used to get take out once a week.

Good quick service and food; just down the street so it makes it easy to get to and we enjoy that fact.

Order the Kapow Chicken, no other Thai restaurant makes it better! I eat Thai food pretty often, but this place is my favorite.

I had their luncheon special again, kaw pow Chicken with ginger and chili pepper and their famous soup. It was delicious. My goodness you get plenty considering it is a special. They have their special beers that are great. You must try them. They are serve with a slice of orange. .

The dishes didn't have the typical ingredients I'm used to having at other Thai restaurants. Also, I suffered an upset stomach all night afterward. Service was just okay. Could've been more friendly.
