“Consistently great!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This small restaurant is always great-- sometimes it fills up early on Friday and Saturday (go early, or later). We usually get spring rolls and/or egg rolls as appetizers. I like Panang Curry (seafood); but Phad Pet (sp?) is good (Pad Thai is good, too). Service can slow a little if full, but well worth it.

“Great Thai food”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Great little place for a good meal. I had the lunch special of Squid Chilli Jam and it was really good! Service was great and staff were very sweet. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I was a little disappointed by the sparse menu and lack of seafood choices, as I don't care for mine fried.

“Wonderfully delicious and authentic.”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

After visiting Thailand, we often crave for some authentic and spicy Thai food....Gem of Thailand is just that...a brilliant gem. The redolent smell of the dishes evoked memories even before our first bite. The perfectly spiced "drunken noodle" was a delightful complement to the "panang beef" that was both spicy (I brave to request for it to be spicy) and sweet curry sauce. The "crispy pork" was lightly battered, crispy, with green and yellow onions...with red sweet and sour sauce...delicious. We topped it off with a "sticky rice with Thai custard" for dessert...we simply looked at each other and mumbled....yummmmm. Most importantly, the service was just as wonderful. We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Don't miss the egg rolls!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Real Thai food. Fresh, nongreasy, and quality ingredients. It's kind of hidden behind Denny's so get directions before you go.
