I ordered the house special-Pad Thai w/shrimp. It had decent flavor but came with hair! I got the Tamarind duck instead. It had no seasoning and and the broccoli and carrots were deep fried which made them inedible. The service was ok-but the server kept mixing up the order. Thumbs down won't visit again.

This is a nice restaurant in a nice part of town. Despite the claims of some that this is the best Thai food they have tasted, I would say that the food is very good but not outstanding. I have tasted better, and in many instances, much-much worse. We had panange curry and drunken noodles. The drunken noodles were just... More

One of my favorite Thai restaurants in Richmond. The place is small so I would recommend reservations. The food was fantastic and very authentic.

Had a great experience. The food was absolutely delicious. Simple yet extremely tasty. My wife ordered drunken noodles. I tasted that as well. It was superb. I will recommend this to anyone. It is a small restaurant.

Oh my goodness delicious!! Thai food is my comfort food and this place has amazing service and great atmosphere. I would eat here every day if I could. My favorite thing is to sit on the porch, drink a beer, and have a nice meal while people watching all the people on Cary St.

We had Spicy Drunken Noodles, Yellow Curry, Pad Thai, Panang Curry, and Fresh and Fried Spring rolls. Like I said not cheap at all. 14.00 for each dish and the Rolls were 6.00. But that being said the waitstaff were very good, prompt and knowing. The dishes arrived quickly and were very good. Very small and kinda loud once it... More

Ordered Chicken Pad Thai and Yum Woon Sen Goong (spicy glass noodle salad with shrimp). Now, my husband is half-Thai and he is very particular about Pad Thai. He claims that it was by far the best he has ever had, even better than his mom's! My yum woon sen goong was deliciously fresh and fragrant thanks to the lime,... More

So this is this is the first American Thai place that I've come to where hot means hot. So choose wisely. Atmosphere is great. Servers are kind and attentive. Will definitely come back

this is a 'regular' meeting spot for a friend and me. do know that the food is spicier than other thai places, so order "mild" to get medium spicy.
