Love the food very different spices used so taste buds were enjoying every bite. The service was excellent very friendly. It's a small but very clean restaurant. It was a joy to enjoy the food and the friendly service.

This was a small place not too far from my hotel. I had my doubts at first because there was almost a full house with only 2 people working. They gracefully managed the crowd. The food was the best Thai we ever had. It was so delicious we returned the next day.

Needed some good honest food with no frills. This was perfect. It was cheap the quality was top notch. For me on my own as an English man I found the portion size was over the top and unnecessary. May be more suited to the American clientele. The place is tiny so it may be worth booking. I would recommend... More

This was my first visit to the great find. It is a very small restaurant seating about 36 people but lucky for many they offer take out and local delivery. The restaurant is very clean and there is cloth table covers and napkins. Be sure to bring a friend to share the food with or be prepared to take some... More

Stopped in here for dinner with my mom. We had Baby Egg Rolls as an appetizer. I ordered the Yellow Curry w/ chicken and my mom got the Pineapple Curry w/ chicken. Everything was amazing! The restaurant is small but very classy. The service was top notch. It's highly underrated on this site.

I got take out at this restaurant and it was very good. My sister and brother in law ate in and thought the service was good and atmosphere was nice. I had the spring rolls and satay and they were great.

Start to finish was delicious. I had the red curry chicken. Other family member fried rice with chicken. It's a small place, but don't let the size or the location. It's a must-try if you like Thai!

We were in town for a medical appointment. Let me start by saying our food was great. We showed up pretty close to lunch being over. We have never been more rushed to order. If they didn't want to stay open for us they should have just told us. Good thing we are familiar with Thai because we had about... More
