We really didn't get why this place wasn't packed. We loved the curries so much we went back for pad thai and Tom Kha soup. The curries are excellent, the soup pretty good, and the pad thai quite good. The only thing I wouldn't order again is the chicken satay. Was just so so. They had free wi-fi, a/c, clean bathrooms and good food. What a great find so close to the convention center.

Easy walk from the hotel. Got take-out, good food, fast service. Ordered one of the Thai soups and dumplings, hit the spot.

Reasonable atmosphere and service, but the food is below average, even by the low standards of Thai restaurants in the US. Avoid the satay, which was absolutely terrible - the worst I have ever had anywhere.

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.
