Extensive menu for vegetarians (they will also make dishes vegan or gluten-free). We ordered carryout. The interior of the restaurant is very basic. The food is not. We ordered the curry fried rice, the pad thai with tofu and the green beans with tofu. All were excellent. I like my food near a 'Thai spicy" but I forgot to mention... More

A friend of mine and I were shopping and got hungry. Driving along Grant we saw numerous places to stop but she caught just a glimpse of the place out of the corner of her eye. Being very hungry, we decided to give it a try. This place proved to be an excellent choice. We were greeted by the friendliest... More

I ordered takeout from this restaurant a few times when I stayed at the Sheraton next door. I only ordered Chinese food so I can't comment on that. They are fast, the food is good, and they are friendly on the phone. Their kung-pao chicken isn't very spicy but it is very flavorful. It is convenient if you're staying at... More

This is one of my favorite Tucson secrets. The food is fresh, tasty, prepared quickly, and I have had only good experiences. The service is always great, and the staff always friendly!

We were really pleased to find such good Thai food -- not easy to find in Tucson! Lots of choices, too.

I ordered the shrimp roll (like an egg roll, but with the rice wrap that's cold) they didn't put the shrimp in one of them. I also ordered the tempura roll, which was very small. I was disappointed with the food and will not go back, however the older man that works there is very nice.

First time at this place, got a chance to meet the owner, really nice person. The food was great, but the surprise was the Thai tea, it was really good, I wasn't expecting it, since it has milk in it. If you have a chance stop by and order a tea with your meal.

We were the first customers to arrive for an early Sunday dinner, found the interior roomy and comfortable, high ceilings, big beams, walls painted terra cotta and green, very attractive. There was an active take out business going on and before 6 pm all the tables were filled and the place was jumping. The owner circulated among the tables and... More
