We have ate here three times in the last few months, and it never disappoints. Tremendous peanut sauce, the pad thai I had was delicious and more than I could eat for one meal. Also can recommend the appetizers, especially the crab rangoon!

I recommend the curries. This is the cheapest restaurant I ever visited that has live piano music and luke bryan half an hour later. The ambiance is good and clean. Waiter was attentive. There is also a veggie section for vegetarian who don't like egg...mixed in. Will be back.More

One of my biggest pet peeves about dining out is inconsistency, but not at this restaurant. The food is beautiful and delicious every time and the waitress is enthusiastic ( said "Ta Da!" when presenting our dishes. Cracked me up). Another thing that's important to...me is being able to hear my friends when at a restaurant. No problem. Even surrounded by other diners our conversation was easy.More

We had just been in Thailand 5 months prior and was really missing the great food we eat when we are there. We were given a gift card and so gave this place a try. It was great from the hostess greeting and seating us...to wanting to lick the plates when we finished our meal. A big thumbs up to our waitress, JoJo, I told my husband when we left "we have not had a waitress that good in a LONG time". Husband had drunken noodles and a birthday drink. I had Laab. It was fantastic. Very authentic and FRESH. We will go back and try something new and if not I would have my dish again and husband said the same. Give them a try!More

Must have hit this place on a very bad night (7/30/2018) 5:00, not a lot of people there yet. We Order pad thai, and chicken fried rice. 5:35 waitress tells us our order got lost but would be out soon. Only two waitresses on duty....Place is filling up. We have a view of the kitchen and enjoy watching the single chef work feverishly as all the orders are now coming in quickly. Our waitress is literally running around trying to keep up with the tables. The Other waitress (who wears glasses) is, methodicallly delivering food to tables that arrived well after we did. 5:45 our waitress tells us "Your food will be out soon!" (Now we just want to see how this will end.) 5:55 I flag down an older man who appears to be the manager and tell him "we've been waiting 1 hour!" He says "Very soon". 6:10 We now see there are two dishes now just sitting on the shelf from the kitchen waiting to be delivered. We don't know if they are our meals. Our waitress is still literallly running around, and not looking at the shelf, the other waitess sees the two plates but leaves them there--must not have been her table's food... 6:15 Both dishes are still on the shelf, cooling and congealing no doubt. We get up and leave. I don't suspect they noticed.More

Been coming here for years. Ever since it opened. It has been getting worse and worse over time. Fewer and fewer people waiting for take-out. There was no one sitting at a table when I came in at 6:00PM. The place is getting dingier and...dingier. We had two chicken dishes. The chicken used to be sliced thin and in small pieces. Tonight the chicken was thick, in large, chewy pieces that tasted like re-heated chicken. Not worth going back. Where this place used to be reviewed regularly (and well) I see there is only one review in all of 2018.More

I have been to several different Thai restaurants, but this will pass if my other places are full or too busy. I like their pad thai and their red curry, but thats about it. Service is okay. The nice thing is that there are several...different locations of this place.More

On Rice had perfectly good Thai food. Cooked to American tastes, but good. I think Bellingham isn't really used to strong flavors. Service was good, I liked my curry (could have been spicier) and it was all fine.

This is our favorite Thai restaurant. It has some good combo plates, as well as entrees. An appetizer is always nice there. Our favorite is the cashew chicken, with had Thai noodles. It comes with rice and soup. We always add an extra dish of...peanut sauce to add to whatever. It is the BEST!More
