“Takrai- sometimes wanna cry!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

Really want good things for this place because the food is superb however the owners arent always kind. They can be abrubt and sometimes odd.
The food is sometimes missing ingredients listed like baby corn- peppers. Or just not enough ingredients for the price.
Overall value is fine with some dishes but there really needs to be consistency especially for $12 dishes.
Recommend the sprig rolls, pad Thai , salad roll and pad med (chicken cashew). Very filling.

Would appreciate some dinner combos for groups

“Food is very good, service is something else!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

I love Thai food. I love most Asian cuisines. This is very good, very authentic Thai food. The quality is good. And it is made fresh.

My main beef about this place is the service. It is just weird. Sometimes very unfriendly. Sometimes very slow. At times, the restaurant is not open, even though the hours say it should be.

The meals seem to be prepared in the order taken. This is not a HUGE problem, but you do need to allow time for this place if you're not first in line so to speak.

I have also wanted to try one of their advertised desserts for a couple of years, but have never had it as they always seem to be out of it. Why have something on the menu that you don't have?

I will continue to go here and put up with the strange service, variable hours, etc. The food is worth it as there aren't many choices for Thai in the area.
