I love Thai food and decided to try this restaurant as it was close to my office. The portions are pitiful and chicken in basil was very bland. I had to add additional chilies. I will not be visiting again. At least the Thai coffee was good.

We intended to have lunch there, but after parking in the garage there were no directions how to get to the restaurent, even though the garage entry was specifically signed that it was parking for the restaurant. My wife uses a walker and was not interested in wandering around in search of how to get to the restaurant, so after... More

The place is small and lean on atmosphere, but I have found the service to be efficient. It's a little like a fast food place in that you walk in and order your meal at a window and pick up your drinks there. You are given an order number and find your own seat. A waiter then serves your food... More

Three different dinners, none of them worth going back. Pick something else. Service was Ok, food mostly tasteless. Setting of the restaurant was convenient.

I eat here once a month or so and find the vibe gentle and comfortable. Not being Thai I can't say if it is authentic but it feels like it. Regardless I enjoy the food.

Excellent food at the small location in a strip mall. I always get great food with good service. The specials are usually wonderful.

I have eaten here numerous times. The food is very good but the place is not. If you don't mind the decor, it is worth it. Go at off hours because there is always a line for lunch. Must mean something.

This is a small, casual dining, restaurant in a strip mall. It is a gem. ("Pilin" means diamond in Thai). Visit for the food, not the ambiance. Excellent seafood, especially soft shell crab in season. Vegetable dishes are fresh and filled with authentic spices, like galangal, lemongrass, chilies as well as fine sauces. Meat dishes are well prepared as well.... More

Okay, so this little storefront restaurant is nothing special in the way of atmosphere, but the service and the food is fantastic. They also have a wide variety of dishes to include some vegan dishes for my son. I enjoyed the seafood kra pow with mussels, shrimp, scallops, and squids. Sadly, the squid was a bit overdone, but the mussels... More

There was nothing special about the food here and that isn't a bad thing. Good soup, good main course, decent atmosphere but nothing special. I was traveling on business when I went here and if I was back in the area I wouldn't hesitate to go again.
