We decided to go for Thai, and wanted to explore a new place. Almost didn't make it because it appeared really busy from the road. But, so glad we changed our minds and went back. Best decision! The spring rolls were freshly rolled and the...More

My nephew and I ate lunch here last Friday. It is a nice neighborhood restaurant serving Thai and other Southeast Asian dishes. We both enjoyed our meals: he had sesame chicken; and I had Pad See Yew, a house specialty. Since I am not a...More

Great lunch place with a pleasing aroma upon entering the restaurant. The place actually is too small for the popularity of this gem. I had fresh spring rolls which were fresh indeed with a sweet dipping sauce. Followed by a vermicelli salad with shrimp, chicken...More

I have been coming to this little family-owned East Side staple and I am never disappointed. A lovely remodel changed them from a hole in the wall to a nice, cozy modern Cafe. The food is as good as always. I have such a hard...More

We tried this place for my birthday meal. It was great --except for the cold air every time the outside door was opened. We had 4 different dishes and each was great and unique. My kids love pad thai and liked this one a lot....More

The pho is amazing. Good broth. I love the pork skins on the broth. Place is a little small. I wish they would expand it soon. But give it a try! You'll love it!

Tilapia curry was good. I've heard that their pho is pretty good too. Very slow when we went in and the waiter (first male server I've seen there) was on top of everything.

The restaurant is small and when it's busy, it's busy! There is street parking only. Service-Hit or Miss depending on who you get as a waiter/waitress. Getting water right away is the main issue and sometimes, getting the food is super slow. 3/5 stars. Food:...More
