Very good Thai cuisine. Like home cooking. Everything is fresh ingredients, made to order. Excellent Pad Thai, yellow curry, house vegetables. Yummy spring rolls.

Sometimes I find oriental food heavy. My glass noodles and vegetables were light and not too seasoned. The atmosphere was nice. Service was good.

I normally don't leave reviews because I don't think many people... More

We were the first people to eat outdoors in 2016 : ) The location is excellent and the outdoor seating is great. I got a spicy green curry and my wife had the panang, both... More

Among the best Thai food I've ever had. Large menu. Plenty of vegetarian options. We went around 5:30 and there was no wait. (They open at 5.)
