Definitely the best Pad Thai. We've been looking around in Orange County CA for a comparable place. Nothing so far! Sam Cafe is the best! Sam himself is very nice and very entertaining, making the atmosphere pleasant and nice. The food smells delicious and tastes great too. Highly recommend. We stop by to eat here any time we are in the area.

Best Pad Thai in the valley. Very good quality. Family owned and operated. Love this place. One of the few great restaurants in Merced. Would not hesitate to recommend this to any of my friends of family. Sam knows how to make great food!!
