This place never fails! Wonderful lunch here the other day - Swimming Rama (3*) and Pad Kee Mao (4*). Plenty of spicy for us, good sized lunch meals, you can’t beat them for their fresh ingredients and fast service - one of my favorite Thai...Restaurants in the area ... and just a walk across the street from Alderwood Mall (in the area of the old Toys R Us) = PERFECT :)More

Do you self a favour and stop by this restaurant. Really attentive staff and the food is really good. Had the Tom Yum soup and the Massaman curry, and I’m now sorry I did not try it out before. Restaurant is a little on the...small side so could mean a wait but well worth the wait if there’s one, they were also doing a good takeaway service.More

This is a stand out Thai restaurant! Fresh ingredients used ... and you can tell the difference! Tried several dishes - crying tiger, pad Thai, ... and there’s a seasonal acorn squash/custard dessert which is out of this world!!! Closed Sundays.

We are in Lynnwood visiting our son which we do every August. Since he works during the weekday we have the day to ourselves and decided to have lunch here. We both love curry so we decided to try this place near the Alderwood Mall....I ordered my usual red curry with chicken and my partner opted for the yellow curry with chicken. We are from San Antonio and quite accustomed to spicy food. We were asked for a level of spice between 1 and 4 so both of us said 4 of course. Here in the northwest it may have been spicy but it was mild at best for us. I could somewhat taste the spice but it was very faint. While the curry was good it certainly needed some spice added to it to be better. Great lunch spot and easy parking unlike at the mall.More

I've been going to this place for years. It's strip mall location makes it easy to get to rather than brave the traffic in the Aldermall lot. It's clean and light and parking is great. I usually have the Phad See Iew here. The noodles...are tender and not over cooked, the sauce is great and theres a good mix of broccoli in it. It makes for a great lunch.More

I have visited this small, out of the way restaurant many times. I have eaten in and taken out. Everything is always freshly prepared with quality ingredients. With road upgrades by Alderwood Mall, it’s a little tricky to find, but definitely worth it. Friendly service...always. My favorite Thai restaurant, by far.More

I really liked the red curry dish I ordered but the food was very spicy for what I asked for, so beware. The restaurant was very clean and the service was good.

This restaurant is located across from Alderwood Mall. Inside the restaurant is relatively clean. From some of the online reviews, most order the Pad Thai and Chicken Satay. The taste of both dishes were very good. we ordered chicken Pad Thai - there was a...decent amount of chicken. There was no tofu however in the Pad Thai. The nuts were all at the bottom of the dish. Chicken Satay was good. The skewers were thinly slices of chicken which worked well. However, I suggest next time asking to put the peanut sauce on the side rather the smothering it all over. We ended up scraping some of the sauce off as there was too much sauce. Not a big thing but there were no pineapple pieces with the Satay. We also tried the mussels appetizer. The sauce for the mussels was tasty. However, these are your typical frozen mussels that you buy from the supermarket. Not a good value given the mussel appetizer was 50 cents less than the Pad Thai entrée.More

Food was good but service was average. Only one person working and never cleared our dishes when we were through eating and the restaurant was cold. But since we arrived just when they opened perhaps there hadn't been time for it to get warm.
