An intimate space and friendly staff with good food and reasonable prices. If you want fancy fine dining then go elsewhere, but if you want to enjoy a quiet and tasty Thai meal this is for you. The curry puffs are lovely.

We ordered the red curry and pad mee kao noodles. It was amazing! We also had the tea. The only downfall was that, the waitress came and grabbed our dishes without asking if we wanted to take the leftovers. She assumed we didn't like it.

Had a party of 25 and enjoyed the meal. Good variety of dishes and drinks. Service was good and prices were reasonable. Looks and feels like a family run business. Close by Japan-town so parking can be difficult at times. I'll be back.

Our visit here was about as good as it gets. The food was delicious, the service was perfect. The Basil Stuffed Eggplant is NOT to be missed. Nice, quiet, comfortable restaurant in/near Japantown. Loved it!

Very good meal. Under 40 for two with added soup appetizer. Spicy and very flavorful, the music was a bit too calming, funny contrast to the food.

We are staying in Japantown, saw that this Thai Resturant had gluten free options and was right across the street from our hotel. We didn't get pad Thai for the first time in a long time and were rewarded with a special dish. Khao Soi...More
