so I cannot completely just give a 2 star rating. I take service into consideration and the locale (it is in Lubbock, so my expectations are lower). It is somewhat a hole-in-the wall place; parking is rather weirdly set up but it was not busy during my visit. Their female server was friendly and I had the chance to meet... More

The owners are absolutely the most kind and humble people I have met. They make you feel welcome and they have the most amazing Beef Fried Rice Ever. It is one of my favorite dish. It is Cash only.

This place has the best pad Thai tofu I have ever had! You wait a little longer than you would for fast food but it's worth it! The spicy is VERY spicy. Everyone who works there is very nice. Cash only is the only bummer.

The ambiance isn't anything to write home about, but the food is unbelievable. This family owned and operated restaurant serves authentic Thai food. If you can't take the heat, make sure to order mild. The pad Thai is a favorite among many of my friends. Give it a try! Cash only.

THIS IS A CASH ONLY ESTABLISHMENT. They have an ATM on site but it charges $3. Bring cash. We had the egg rolls, seafood soup, and chicken curry (we got them mild). The price was reasonable but the drinks are separate and there is no fountain, just cans of soda and juices. The chicken curry was excellent! The soup however... More

The signs in the restaurant are great. You know right when you walk in there the cook isnt messing around. It says if you want fast food go to a place such as that. The quality of food was awesome and the price was even better. I paid under 20 dollars for 3 meals, drinks, and extras. The wait staff... More

We've been to all the Thai restaurants in town and this really is the best. Be careful about asking for spicy unless you REALLY want it.

First time eating at this restaurant in about 5 years...not because I don't like it, but simply because I'm never on this side of town. Even after 5 years, the food remains very good. Had the combination fried rice and egg rolls as an appetizer, both were great. I consider this small place a hole in the wall, but it's... More

I lived in Lubbock for a few years in college, and this was on of my favorite spots. Try the shrimp eggrolls.

Roadtrip to the west coast... visit 2. Still en route. Left Memphis, stopped in a podunk place I can't remember outside of Amarillo, small town, great food. Can't remember the name... :banghead: Ended up in Lubbock, Texas. Wanted oriental and we found a hole in the wall cafe next to a 7-11. You don't go here for a bar, or... More
