We went here on my birthday for the first time. We were seated immediately and then suddenly it was as if we did not exist. The small square table we were sat at had a round glass top that could have easily been bumped over and off onto the floor. It took half an hour before someone came to take... More

Four of us stopped here for dinner one night as part of a "Dine Around" event. The item they were supposed to serve that night was unavailable. They substituted another dish that was nothing more than a big plate of noodles with tofu and very few small pieces of meat. No vegetables. It was awful. We will never go back.

I tried this spot for the first time with a friend. The space is open and casual, the service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the Pad Thai--yum! Like most places in the area, parking is limited, so just park on a side street and you'll be good to go.

I can't speak to the food because we left without ever ordering. The restaurant wasnt very busy. The waitstaff was simply unorganized. After seating ourself and getting menus, we waited...and waited. Finally, we decided to exit stage left and go elsewhere.

Went in for lunch, I think there was only one waitress, and she was hustling, but didn't have too long a wait. Had steamed dumplings, but I was craving fried, which they happily accommodated, for appetizer, came out fast and were good. Ordered a noodle dish, not spicy as hoped but was tasty. I would go back, especially since it... More

I've enjoyed trying all the different Thai restaurants St. Louis City has to offer... but hands down, this one is the very best. From their appetizers to their main course offerings, to the beverages that they stock... everything is exceptional. They also have the best chicken dumplings I've ever tasted anywhere. Family owned and operated... this is the place to... More

Met a friend here for dinner. As a calorie counter trying to lose weight, this was the perfect place. I ordered the Garlic chicken and the meal was fresh and light and filling and I didn't have to feel guilty for eating it. I like that chopsticks were on the table along with forks. I didn't have to ask for... More

This is not the first time I visited this restaurant, however it is my first time trying their soup. Me and my mom ordered a large size tom yum kung soup and beef salad. It is the worst tom yum ever. It was luke warm and tasted almost like fish sauce straight out of the bottle. Nasty! For almost $10... More
