Go to this original Rice Thai Cuisine not the copycat Mama's and you'll be rewarded. We've eaten at both. (Family feud). The 20 year recipe for the coconut Thai chicken is the best I've ever eaten. And the vegetable curry yum yum. Best Thai in...More

Very flavorful. Some of the best Thai food we have had. Excellent customer service. Peanut Rama was delicious. Eggplant was fresh and not overcooked.
