The Thai food is very good and the service fabulous. We go as a group of women friends and share dishes which is fun. The Pad Woo-sen, Pad Tai, Lover's Scampi are among some of our favorites.

Usually I get take out from this restaurant but it is also a pleasant dining room. There is parking nearby and I find the quality of the food very consistent. My kids love the pad thai, green curry, satay, and spring rolls. I rarely have ordered anything that I didn't like. The restaurant has been around a long time but... More

I'm sorry to write this, the service was quite nice and the restaurant clean and well decorated. But, unfortunately, the food is really very substandard Thai. We went based on other reviews but were disappointed and won't return.

I've eaten here for 20+years. They always deliver an excellent Thai meal in a very quiet and comfortable atmosphere.

I lived in Thailand for 10 years and have visited this restaurant before moving to Thailand, while living there and after I moved backed to Boston. They are brilliant. The food, service and the ambience are all first rate. Another reviewer said it is divine and I couldn't agree more.

A pleasant ambiance and good service are to be found in this place that serves more of the northern cuisine dishes of Thailand. I tried the Macadamia Beef which had a delicate sauce combined with the freshest ingredients. The beef was a marinated cubed style that was both tender and tasty. The only criticism was the fresh watercress was slightly... More

We ordered take-out recently, and it was truly divine. Our family was in heaven with chicken and vegetable curry, pad thai, and chicken with cashews. Fresh, high-quality ingredients. Service was fantastic. Next time, we'll eat in the actual restaurant--ambiance and decor was inviting, and we truly cannot wait to go back!

We eat here at once once a week. Both adults and kids love the food and ambience of the place. The staff is so friendly; they know us by name, and even remember what we usually order ! The price is reasonable, and if a dish is too spicy for you, they will cook it to your liking. If you... More

You just can't get bad Thai food in Boston. This place is the only original tenant of the old Cahners Publishing Building, now called One Newton Place, built in 1986. While everyone else is gone - this place thrives because the food is superb. Validated parking in the garage accessible from Bacon street.

We have eaten here about 5 times in the last year and always liked the food but on our last visit Sunday, the flavors seemed a step up to awesome. Service is always fine, indoor parking free, and wine just what we like. Easy to get to just off Mass Pike Newton Corner.

Thank William F
