Enjoyed a delicious dinner of Pad Thai with pork and Cashew Chicken with extra green beans. They made the Pad Thai gluten free and we loved the option to add more veggies to our cashew chicken. We also requested less garlic. Portions were late, all...ingredients fresh and super tasty. Recommend you go there!!More

Sharing soup – yes you can! Quite a delight to ladle it steaming & fragrant from a huge gleaming silver hot pot! We tried the “most famous of all Thai soups” – Thom Yum Goong – freshly made, and deliciously flavored with shrimp, kaffir lime...leaves, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, galanga root, and fresh lemon grass. Only downside for second helpings was that the soup got cold without a heat source below the hot pot. For a healthy appetizer with a light crunch, try the fresh salad rolls – attractively served on a nest of bright green lettuce, with a side of creamy, peanut dipping sauce. The transparent rolls are packed with delicate slivers of cabbage, carrots, & glass noodles, capped with a cube of tofu, and flavored exquisitely with a fresh leaf of basil with a surprising zing of anise. Quite a variety of entrees too – with nice presentations, & your choice of spiciness! We enjoyed the peanut sauce curry with tender chicken, broccoli, cabbage and decorative carrot flower slices. However, the side order of brown rice had absolutely no seasoning. Generous helpings, and too much food to finish though, so we packed leftovers. Our waitress was exceptionally friendly, and gave excellent service! Food arrived in stages – which allowed for leisurely dining. The booths (only three by the windows) were very comfortable. The main dining area was spacious with tables and chairs. A good place for conversations, & not noisy. The room looked somewhat formal, with yellow cloth napkins artfully folded into triangles dotting the tabletops. Most notable was the prevalence of groups happily dining around the larger tables! Parking was limited, with a one-way entry into the small lot. Exiting at night was a problem if you don’t know about the narrow side alley to turn into to get back to the street. Try to see it before you enter the restaurant at dusk! Overall, this popular restaurant near the University is a fine place to dine – especially for groups where a variety of dishes can be shared, although priced a bit on the high side.More

The several dishes i have enjoyed there have all been very good, if not spectacular. The servers have been excellent. It is currently my go-to place in Eugene for Thai food.

We chose this restaurant because of its location to our hotel. We ate here for lunch. The staff was very friendly. Service was quick and efficient. The menu was large enough for us each to have a good selection. The food was very tasty.

I have eaten here for years and do not understand why it is not better known. Great food, good parking, great service, nice interior, good value. I bring customers here because it is well decorated, the service is consistently good as is the food. Volumes...are great as is the price. All of the curries and stir fries are wonderful. I love the meatball noodle soup especially on a cold damp day in Eugene. I have eaten at all the Thai eateries int he region and this is one of the best if not my favorite.More

I have been wanting to try Thai food for quite some time a just saw this place one day while driving by. I was expecting a dinner that would leave my mouth on fire. I got something better than that. First let s talk parking,...there is good parking, but I suggest you car pool. It can get a little tight is everyone takes their own. The place is fairly easy to get into and out of. But if you miss the turn, you'll have to go around about a half of a mile.. The place is nicely light, has nice interior decor, and is clean. Blue jeans are fine. Shorts in the summer are probably ok too. The place is pretty casual. It is not a romantic atmosphere. Casual dining is this places' style. The art work and sculptures will keep the kids occupied for a while. I went on 3/2/18 around 5pm and it was not busy. The staff was friendly and I was seated immediately. The drinks menu was a little on the thin side, but acceptable. Wines are sold by the bottle. The booth seating was very comfortable and of good size for 4. The menu is pretty big. It's around 6 pages. All items are marked with a number of asterisks. The more asterisks, the more hot-&-spicy the dish is. There are salads, vegetarian dishes, soups & salads, and other stuff I didn't even get to read about. I decided to go with the cashew chicken, a bowl of sticky rice, and a hefenweizen.. The meal came is very good time. It was well plated and of sensible size. It was wonderful. Lots of veggies, tender thin-sliced chicken, red bell peppers, onions, and a red sauce that added just the right amount of flavor. The rice was perfectly cooked. I passed on the desert menu since I have it at home. But there are some nice items there. Dinner billed was $18.95. That's really darn good for what you get. Don't be afraid of Thai food if you've never had it. The meal I had was just 1 asterisk and I thought it was mild. Next time I'll try a 2 asterisk meal. I'll be back. There are simply too many mouth watering items on the menu I just have to try.More

We were traveling through on our way to AZ, got a room for the night and felt to tired to go out. Researched Thai restaurants and found this one delivered so we went for it and are so happy we did! Everything we ordered was...fresh, phenomenal and perfectly seasoned: -Salad Rolls were best we ever had as was the Pad Thai; the Sweet & Sour was the perfect balance of chicken, vegetables & pineapple 🍍in a light savory sauce. -We had Chicken Curry as well and though the flavor was excellent, it seemed to only contain chicken & potatoes. -For dessert we had Pumpkin 🎃 custard and "Oh My"...what a treat. We will imbibe again & again every time we go they Eugene.More

I ordered the shrimp pad thai and asked for it a bit spicy. It was as bland as could be, and didn't have much taste. Not very appealing in appearance, either...all a bland whitish color. I really like Thai food, but this was unspectacular.

Great spot for Thai food in Eugene! The atmosphere is great for large groups. We had a group of 7. The food was excellent - well prepared and seasoned and the portions were large. Service was superb and the food came quickly. I had the...yellow curry (mid spicy). It was great with chicken. Others had the various items on the extensive menu. I would definitely recommend this for families, groups, and possibly couples. Great food, friendly service, and decent price.More
