I’m not the type to post online reviews, and this is my first on Trip Advisor. But I was browsing around the site looking for St. Louis area recommendations and was so astonished at some of the negative reviews of this place, that I was motivated to write something. I live in Tower Grove and have been going to this... More

Expensive, but not bad, considering how far from Thailand St. Louis is. Everything I had was good, and very fresh. Spring rolls with rice noodles packed tight, with house made sweet chili sauce and peanut sauce. And I was happy to see them make curry with all the essential ingredients of Thai curry: fresh coconut milk, chilies, galangal, ginger, and... More

Good spring rolls, good pad thai, good beef and broccoli. Served quick. I couldn't really enjoy it, though. I kept looking around thinking the place needed a good cleaning. It is for that reason I can't rate it better.

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
