This place is tucked away in a plaza where everything else is either closed or in transition. It is nicely decorated inside, service is excellent, vegetables are all fresh and cooked al dente. This is Thai but also chinese cuisine, with eat-in or take-out. It's fairly small, but still nicely set up for dining. I'm going again tomorrow with my... More

Excellent food and service. The staff is friendly and efficient. I had the Panang, and it was one of the best I've tasted.

Though the restaurant maybe small in a very small strip mall i.e. 2 other stores . You will be delighted with such fresh Thai food . I selected a meal with ginger and it was delicious. I also had the wontun soup which was the best I have ever had . The waiter was very attentive . Though not fancy... More

Between the superb Thai food and the calming ambiance of the Restaurant, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It is the little restaurant with the BIG surprise. I highly recommend you enjoy a dining experience by trying this Restaurant. The table service is spot on, too.

Wanted something different especially after returning from Thailand, last month. The veg spring rolls were rather tasteless with the sweet chili sauce a bit watery. I had the yellow curry but they accommodated choice of salmon, instead of the menu driven stock choices. Plenty of rice with aldenté veg. Would eat here again, although mine was a take away. $27...

We wanted to have 'something asian' between ALL the EXPENSIVE seafood dinners Rather than the 'common chinese cuisine' which is everywhere for takeout We decided on this Thai place Reasonable ambiance... Very reasonable prices... But best surprise of all... VERY VERY VERY good tasting thai cuisine Ordered... More

We've done take-out from here a number of times now and are very happy with their food. Everything we've ordered has been very good. They also can make many of their dishes Gluten Free which is critical as my wife has Celiac disease and many other Thai restaurants don't do a very good job of adapting. My only note is... More

We get take-out on a regular basis and we have never been disappointed! The fried shumai are wonderful as is the chicken satay - they slice it thinly, grill it and layer on a light curry sauce - terrific! Have had several of the chicken entrees and they have never disappointed - very flavorful! A definite go-to place for Thai... More

This little Thai restaurant is in an old, needing attention, strip mall on Rte 28. Don't go by the looks of the place. Stopping in at lunch I ordered the pineapple fried rice with pork and it was very good. You can ask for spicy "heat" by specifying the number of stars. One star = low spice, 5 stars =... More

My husband and I came here, not having Thai Cuisine before.. The dining room was quite empty and quiet but it was AMAZING food! My Husband said it was the best meal he had eaten since on The Cape. We will be returning one last time before we head back to Western, MA.
