We have wintered in Thailand for 7 years, and this was the worst food I have ever tried to eat. Everything was thickened with corn flour ( even the coconut curry) so pretty much tasted like corn. Jalapeño peppers are not like bird's eye chiles, therefore everything was WAY overspiced ( and I eat HOT). The jasmine rice was overcooked. It was an overall bad experience foodwise.

What a wonderful surprise to find this gem hiding well off 5th Avenue craziness!!!!! Our first find of Thai food and it was extremely delicious - all four dishes we ordered were top notch in flavor and quality. The Chicken Satay skewers with peanut sauce were the best I've ever tasted - super tender and the peanut sauce flavor was fantastic. We will definitely return. The curry listed last on the menu had such a rich flavor, it is a must try and the red curry was also worth repeating!!!! The staff in the restaurant and the kitchen were very friendly. The restaurant and bathroom were both pristinely clean too!

Have been here a few times and its a great find in Playa. The food is great and the hard working owners are very friendly. They are not overpricing and under delivering like some restaurants in La Quinta. Highly recommended if you want a change from average Italian restaurants which seem to be everywhere in Playa. Now in Spanish from my girlfriend.

A diferencia de mi novio, no soy muy amante de la comida picante, sin embargo, estuvo tan rica la comida que por primera vez comí este tipo de comida con todo el placer, claro
está que quede un poco mal de la garganta, y regresé por más :)
