“Great lunch spot for spicy Thai”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Visit this spot for lunch every week or so and it never disappoints. Nothing fancy but service is quick, portions adequate and will spice to taste. Several hotels under construction in the area so visit now before all the travelers overwhelm it.

“Great little spot for Thai & Thai beers”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were recommended this spot by concierge at the hotel. The ambiance is cute and quaint and the food was overall true Thai. Great place to catch a good Thai meal & great Thai beer!

“Really good Thai food.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The crab fried rice was amazing. The pad Thai too! If you love Thai food and you are around the 4th street area, check it out....

“We didn't like this Thai place.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Nothing here was good. Not the service, not the food, not the price.
We love Thai food, but our evening started off badly when we waited for ten minutes for our water. There were only two other tables with people, and there were two servers. The food wasn't great. The price was too much for what we got.

“Words cannot describe”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

My husband and I have dined at many Thai restaurants and are generally more than pleased by them but this one stands apart from the others which I thought not possible. There was not a single thing I would change about our experience here. Within easy walking distance of the Sixth Street entertainment district in Austin, making it's location a bonus , the ambience was lovely , the service attentive , and the food...the food defies description! It's quality, the taste, it's appearance was outstanding! We had a dining certificate that allowed us to have appetizers, soups, entrees AND dessert at 1/2 price but this is one we would gladly have paid full price for . We purposely ordered dissimilar items on all courses so that we could try out more and were not disappointed by ANY! We were there on a weeknight and relatively early at that so perhaps this explains why we were the only diners for the first hour. At that point, a few more arrived and seated themselves outside. Since I had to suggest this eatery to Trip Advisor, and because of the coupon program they participated in, maybe they are a new restaurant ? Whatever the case, make this a MUST In Austin!
