“My favorite Thai restaraunt in the Santa Cruz area”
Reviewed November 14, 2009

My wife and I have eaten in and ordered take out over the past 5 years and never been dissapointed.
I have worked and lived in SE Asia for 3 years, including Thailand, and their food comes as close as any US Thai restaraunt in matching the taste in Thailand, except not quite as spicy. But they do accept requests for degree of "heat".
For a Thai restaraunt It is a bit on the pricy side, but then again one gets what they pay for.

“This place is AMAZING”
Reviewed May 27, 2008

Hands down the best Thai food I have ever tasted. Was there with a large group and got to taste a lot of the menu items. Everything was unbelievably good, but if you go, you absolutely must try the coconut curry and the vegetable spring wraps. All their sauces are fabulous too!

Whether or not you think you like Thai food, this is unlike anything you've had before - Trust me!
