Food was very good, but portions pretty small for a Thai restaurant. Waitress really did not know the menu very well and was not helpful. Not much atmosphere either and not very crowded. However, if you are in Middlebury and are craving Thai food, it's not a bad option.

Stopped in for dinner while visiting my son at the college. Lively atmosphere, energetic staff, excellent food. Smallish dining room increases pressure to turn over the tables on a busy night, so plan accordingly if you're looking to linger over a leisurely meal.

My wife and I were getting away in VT for a few days and decided to walk around Middlebury for a bit. The wife was in the mood for Thai and we found this place. Nice older building with great tin ceilings. Clean interior and the food was great. We had two different curries and both were well prepared, spicy... More

Stopped in late Afternoon. Note that parking is a bit of a compromise, expect that you may have to park some distance from the restaurant. We walked in and found the place basically empty, with an atmosphere and staff activity level that suggested that they were not open. There is a huge amount of seating available inside, with tables up... More

My daughter and I stopped in for a late lunch when in town to visit Middlebury College. We weren't terribly hungry (so we though), but ordered 2 appetizers and one dinner each, telling the server we would need take-out boxes for the left-overs. Well ... that never happened. Everything was so delicious, we ate every bite. Luckily, we were staying... More

Early dinner, not busy at all. Extremely chipper server tried his best, I think... We sat ourselves, never got water. We paroused the menu and noticed the plastic specials holder on the table. THREE of the items were unavailable, still no water. Back to the menu. We then pick two dinners and an app, which thankfully they had & put... More

There are far too many things on the menu to even pick a couple to hi-lite! The food is authentic and the prices are excellent. One of my favorite local restaurants.

Neither my son nor I expected anything other than a break from burgers when we decided to come here but we got much more. The fresh tools were good and the pad Thai was perfectly serviceable. But the basil crispy duck was amazing! Boneless, crispy, chewy, just spicy enough. I'm getting hungry thinking about it right now. In a perfect... More

My husband picked Sabai Sabai for dinner on his birthday. The Pineapple Curry was wonderful, the portion was large, wish I had room to try the Mango with Sticky Rice for desert.
