We ordered dinner for a Saturday night at home as the indoor dining remains closed at this time. It was delicious. A Thai Iced Tea was missing from the order - no worries. When I called the Owner he said he tried to catch me before leaving; we agreed I could return the net day to pick up the tea. The next day the owner called me in the afternoon to remind me to collect the tea, which I did and he added a second tea for the inconvenience. Very careful to disinfect anything one may have touched while picking up the take out.

Fresh, delicious authentic Thai cuisine in a cozy comfortable setting with amazingly attentive and fast service all provided by the husband and wife team of owners! Incredibly nice, dedicated couple creating and serving the best of food. We’ve loved everything we’ve ordered, but highly recommend the Moo ping and sticky rice app when they have it (just WOW), the green papaya salad (spicy, fresh, healthy, yum), the Tom Yum soup, the Cashew Chicken (the chicken is deliciously charred, but tender and amazing) the Massaman beef and, of course Pad Thai. :) They change up the menu, but you can’t go wrong with anything and don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations from Bryan. My husband and I share the appetizer and salad and then hoard our entree. Oh yeah, the beer and wine selection is just right. I can’t pass up the hot sake as the weather turns colder—earthy tasty treat I never think of at home.

This has to be one of the best Thai restaurants in the country outside of Thailand. The soup was so flavourful along with the papaya salad. The green curry and pad Thai were outstanding. No carrots or broccoli like other Thai places, this place is REAL! Wish I was in the area longer to try more dishes here. Will be back!!

We were in STL for one day and found this place on Yelp, and we made an excellent choice! The ratings average of 4.6 was accurate. We travel a lot and eat Thai wherever we go, and this is one of the best Thai restaurants we have found. The food and service were both fabulous and we were lucky enough to interact and discuss the menu with the creative chef/owner, Brian. He is charming in addition to his culinary skills (I think his spouse is also part of the success of this place). We had the yellow curry which was some of the best I've had and the special of the evening which was a Seafood Flat Rice Noodles in Gravy. The highlight was the dessert, Home-Made mango ice cream on a bed of sticky rice with a creamy coconut sauce accompanied by fresh mango cubes, strawberries and mint.

Walking into the restaurant the aroma of fresh Thai food fills the air. Everyone's plate looked like a picture. The food was colorful and fresh, most of all taste great! The portions are a little small but the quality is first rate. Try an appetizer of spring rolls, they were very good. I would recommend this restaurant. Seating is limited.

I recently ate here after reading the positive reviews in the St Louis Post. When I walked in, the place smelled so good I had high hopes. I got my food to go and got the tom yum shrimp soup and green curry with shrimp. The flavor of the broth in the soup was amazing! spicy, sour, salty and a little sweet, everything you want in a Thai soup, very authentic! It came with two big shrimp in it but for me it was such a small bowl I would have happily given up one of those shrimp for more of that broth. I had high hopes for the green curry since the Post recommended that specifically. It was good but quite mild and it was missing the eggplant that was supposed to be in it. And again, it was disappointingly small portion size. I spent $24 on this takeaway and I should be super full for that and I'm not. Would I go back? Yes, but I would eat in and maybe choose a different main course. Almost everything on the menu looked really good. It's worth a try and don't shy away from ordering an appetizer.

Oh my, I'm officially on the Thai food train and can't wait to return to this eatery. My son, Ben, is a major Thai fan so we've gone to several restaurants around the U.S. I've reluctantly gone each time, never being crazy about any of them. This place converted me. With the enthusiastic guidance of our darling young server, I ordered the Shrimp Pad Thai and ate every last drop. Its presentation was beautiful and its spiciness was subtle and perfect. The facility isn't spacious but stylish and clean.

Kind of hidden away in a small west county strip mall. But attentive personal service from the owners, and excellent food nicely presented make it worth seeking out.

Just tried this little gem after my neighbor recommended it. Small but extremely clean. Bryan will recommend or describe the dishes if you like. Everything is fresh and very tasty. The menu is simple but there are enough items to choose from. Love the chicken pad Thai. The spring rolls are unique and the accompanying sauce is wonderful. Fried rice is fabulous, cooked in broth rather than oil so much healthier and delicious than other versions. We will definitely be back. Can't wait to try a curry dish next time.

Was looking for some good Thai food for a little birthday dinner. Did a search in Ballwin area and was pleasantly surprised to see several options. Choose this place and overall it was a good meal. Loved the crispy spring rolls and pork appetizers. A little disappointed that they didn't serve a pad woon sen meal, but settled for an nice beef noodle soup. Overall pretty good food!
