The service is terrific at this restaurant. The waiter, Sean, I think was his name is very eager to please. His family is in the hospitality business and that shows in his service.

Try the coconut soup ... Plus everything on the menu is great.. Very convenient being inside a hotel so we didn't need to do take out.

Great location. All the Thai dishes we ordered were authentic and the quality was excellent. We would definitely go back.

Be sure to eat your meal with the chop sticks, the service was good and atmosphere was pleasant . My only complaint would be the closed on Mondays, but everyone must rest sometime !

Yes, it's in a sketchy hotel, but! It's the best, freshest, cheapest Thai/Asian in the area. No one else's pad Thai rivals and the Pho!!!! Get the Pho!!!!

We don't know very much about Thai cuisine, but we know good food when it's put before us. I must say that our server Shea was MOST excellent, and made wonderful suggestions.

I wouldn't call this a Thai place. It's more of a Shogun like place. No, they don't cook your food in front of you. The food is similar. They were probably not expecting the party of forty that were already here. Food was good but service was slow due to the massive crowd. Don't think we will be back.

Food was good, more importantly the staff was out of this world. We were traveling with our precious pup & staff allowed her to sit on outside patio, gave her water & was very attentive to her needs. Live music on Thursday night was awesome - thanks for your hospitality

Happened to be in the area and realized it was late (2:00 pm) and we had had no lunch. We pulled in to an empty parking lot and thought maybe this is not a good idea. But it was a pleasant surprise. We had the Thai Ginger with Beef and Thai Basil with Chicken. The beef was the better dish,... More
