I love this restaurant for dates, business and anything in between. The staff is wonderful and the food always pleases. My tip is to go for lunch: the prices are much lower and the food is just as amazing.

I have never had a bad meal here, the food is fresh and flavorful. Not the best wine selection but it is adequate.

Took me forever to make a choice, given the range of exciting dishes on this menu. I ended up with the Pacific Medley (seafood medley) and it was superb. I really wanted to go back a couple more times to explore other dishes that sounded wonderful. We had great service; the ambiance is quite nice. We lived in Lincoln 20... More

The Tom Kha soup was absolutely horrendous and the spring rolls sub par. Lincoln deserves better Thai food. Avoid the same mistake of believing the good reviews and skip this restaurant!

My friends had drunken noodles which were excellent. I had the blue crab with rice, very good except WAY too much rice, like 2x too much. Drinks took very long time to receive each time & they weren't that busy. Been to Thailand several times, not sure I call this real authentic Thai food, but it's very good for here.

Good food at a reasonable price. Nice atmosphere. Not the worlds best Thai food but the best around here. You will not be disappointed.

This is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. My boyfriend always gets the Crying Tiger (and always loves it) and I tried the Blue Crab Fried Rice (delicious!) We love the atmosphere, the food is always good, and the service is fine. I also recommend Butter Chicken and the yellow curry.

Atmosphere is pleasant. Parking is challenging. I think that if you are looking for a something different this could be a nice option. . Service was not very good on this particular visit and we needed to send one dish back due to lack of sauce.

Thank Michelle D
