Mussaman curry was tasty, but not spicy. Pad kee Mao Noodles were very spicy and delicious. If you are fond of spicy food, this is an excellent restaurant for you! Thai iced tea was very good. Coconut milk-based soup was yummy. Pleasant atmosphere and very good service. Several nearby parking lots.

Tried this restaurant on our trip to Austin. Great food and service. We had their fresh rolls and red curry that was made perfectly with right amount of spice. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

We stopped in primarily to sample the tom kha gai which was excellent. It was served in a pot which encircled the chimney stack of a sterno heater, and it was delicious The flavors rivalled those from restaurants we remember fondly in Chiang Mai. We also had the stir-fry cashew chicken and it also was excellent. The servings were huge and the waitress was friendly and attentive. She had time to visit since the clientele was light on the evening of our visit. All said, we were very pleased with the experience.

We went for dinner on a Saturday night, and were seated near the kitchen. I thought that cleanliness was a bit of a problem. There were gum wrappers and other debris under our table; the servers did not use a fresh glass when refilling drinks at the soda machine. We ordered satay for a starter. The peanut sauce was tasty, but the satay was cold. For main dishes, we had a daily special, a panang curry and a noodle dish. The panang curry was flavorful, but the noodle dish was bitter (as if it had been burned). The rice had clearly been sitting around for some time, and was sticky and overcooked. Overall, the dinner was okay; perhaps if we had ordered other dishes? I wouldn't go out of my way for dinner here since there are much better options in Austin.

Last nite of a 5 day trip for the F1 and wanted some thai food rather than good old American fare. Chose this as it was close to hotel, albeit not the best of reviews. Food was incredible. I had the papaya salad, gorgeous and a big serving. Not too spicy either. Then had thai which was hot, tasty and cooked to perfection. Also had deep fried red snapper and it was lovely, tasty and looked great. Service was ok, bit too keen to clear the table for me, removed my friends dishes while I was still eating. Aside that would defo recommend it
