The food is good and I like spicy foods a lot so when I was asked how spicy I ordered at 3 thinking that would be medium. 3 was definitely not medium and was hot. Food was good just be careful on how spicy you order. Would come again.

Very good food, serves alcohol, service good. Prices are decent too. Good for families or date night. Parking isn't the greatest, no driveway, have to find parking on street

Went in for lunch ordered the house special wonton pad thai.... I Liked the salad they started off with. However they managed to mix up my order with another table, which is not huge except I specifically asked for non-spicy and no bean sprouts. When I noticed sprouts I asked if the waitress remembered to not tell the kitchen not... More

Despite it's location on Washington Ave in Endicott, this place has some of the best Thai in the area, and beyond (incl Ithaca area.) Their Drunken Noodles are exceptional, so much so that everyone at our table thought they might order them the next time we go, which we all felt would be soon. Prior to last night, I believed...

Apparently there is a new chef from Thailand and the food is out of this world good! I stopped going for a while because the portion sizes were getting small, but we gave it another shot and OMG. So much better!!!!

We went here for a celebration for our daughter, her choice. It is a BYOB with a bar. We brought some wine & champagne to celebrate. I asked for a martini-can't do that. Then gin & tonic- no tonic. WELL WHAT DO YOU HAVE? We'll go with the wine we brought. Ordered recommended appetizers. Good. Entrees were good. Heat levels... More

Went on a Friday evening. Was not busy so our service was good. Food came out fast and was very good. The atmosphere is a bit lacking but I will go back because of the food which is the most important part.

Best Thai food in the area, a bit pricey at first glance but the portions are very generous. The atmosphere is not so great for eating in, though. All of the curries are delicious, and the best pad thai I've had anywhere (and I travel a lot!).

Make sure if you want something spicy, you tell them. In which case you will get amazing Thai food. They have a beautiful bar and the atmosphere is great. Reasonable prices and the service is very good. Drunken noodles and spicy basil are my favorites!
