It was our first time and define rely last time. After a long waiting time, we saw food in small bowls. The curry looked nasty and tasted the same. I could see part of the kitchen from my table and it looked dirty. Food overpriced.

I just love their Basil Rolls. I always order extras to take home. I haven't been disappointed with each dish I have ordered. I usually take the order home as the interior isn't that enjoyable. But I do love their food!

We loved the food! Delish with a good vegetarian selection. The ambiance however, had much to be desired. The service was good.

Love the owners. Eat there several times each month. Have had better elsewhere but this is one of my favorites for Thai in Chattanooga. They try hard and are very friendly. If you want a quick in and out, this isn't it. If you want...More
