We came to this restaurant as a fallback to another horrible restaurant on Solano. The wait to get in was zero, the food was great, and this restaurant saved the evening. The pad thai and iced teas are excellent. The chicken dishes were very good, as well as the satay. Very casual and low key, but excellent food and ambience value for the price.

Decent food but not strong flavoring. Nothing like authentic Thai cooking.... you do not pick up any fish sauce or much heat in dishes that should have those flavors.

Went there for a quick lunch on Saturday. The food arrived so fast that it could not possibly have been cooked - it was "constructed" out of previously cooked ingredients. Pad Thai- the chicken was dry and had no flavor; the sauce was so sticky and sweet that it had to have come from a bottle; the peanuts were flavorless and soft, like they'd been sitting around for a while. My dining pal ordered the lunch special and it was so so. Don't think we'll be back since there are so many other options on the same street.

Over all the food was good, but disappointed in the soup (them cha gai). The corn cakes were very good and the fresh roll of vermicelli, tofu and vegetables was just ok. Sliced duck with lychee was very good but all the other items my friends ordered wasn't up to what you might expect. Lacked flavor and spice. The service was wonderful and fast.

First time here, went for lunch. Super friendly staff. Sat at a little table in the courtyard. We had the pan fried dumplings first, they were fantastic. I had the minced chicken with basil entrée-Delicious!! However, it was so spicey. I asked for medium spice, next time light spice. But it was awesome. Oh and lunch comes with a cup of awesome vegetable soup and a really good little salad. So glad to find a great Thai place that's nearby!
