If there is such a thing as American Thai food, then this is it. Ultra safe food. My wife got the mussamun curry. It was very plain and watery. Not much substance at all. The potatoes were barely cooked and the carrots weren’t cooked at...More

A small restaurant located in an out of view location, but with a GPS you will find it. The food was truly worth the trip and the prices were excellent. I had the masa man curry and it was served a little different here than...More
