Charming restaurant with great food and atmosphere. Service was fast and friendly. Recommend the Thai tea, shrimp purse appetizer, and crispy bananas.

TLDR: Over the past six months, the quality of the food, customer service, and delivery have all tanked. Avoid like the plague on principle. Details: It started with people messing up small things like not including rice, sending the wrong type of rice, or adding tofu to dishes that were supposed to not have any soy. Next came them forgetting... More

Some of the best Thai food I have had. Very nice restaurant with the friendliest ladies ever. Made to feel most welcome. Classy place with nice decor and white tablecloths. Good bathroom ,too. Tom Yum soup is my favorite and I asked for it to be served as my entree with noodles added. No problem. Small up charge for noodles.... More

I absolutely love Thai food and I'v been to Thailand twice and the food is the best Thai in Madison. The disappointing part is there portions are very small and one hour or two later, you might be hungry again. I'd recommend this restaurant for lunch over dinner.

After 3 days of back-to-back business appointments in Madison, I stopped here for take-out and returned to my hotel. I was totally beat and didn't even have much of an appetite, but I ordered the Jungle curry with chicken. Back in my hotel room, I took a bite and wow - it was awesome. It was a very generous portion... More

Have been to this venue for lunch and to the one on University Ave for dinner and it's always been okay (not great). Tonight was simply awful. My husbands chicken had an extremely weird texture. My meal was supposed to be spicy but was really bland. Neither of us could finish the food. The worst thing was the service. No... More

Had a delicious lunch here. The Pad Thai is so very good. There are a lot of choices and they all looked wonderful. You can choose your heat, and the wait staff are prompt and efficient. The decorations are a pleasure to look at.

First visit to a restaurant that serves Thai food. I had a noodle dish with chicken. Also came with choice of soup or salad. It was very good, service was pleasant. Nice clean atmosphere. Would go again in the opportunity presented itself.

This restaurant is by far my favorite Thai restaurant in the entire city of Madison. I have NEVER been disappointed with anything that I have EVER ordered!! This is a must go to if visiting the West Side of Madison! The Summer Rolls with the #49 Pad Thai is hands down my favorite on the menu! I recommend this to... More

A friend and I used to frequent this restaurant. The food and service was exceptional, but things have changed since a couple of years ago. About a year previous, we stopped here on a Friday night. We ordered our standard fare, a rice dish and a masamun dish. Service was bad, but we were trying to be kind because it... More
