If you are stay around this place you need to go try their coconut based soup. It is awesome and tasty. Good service and staff is great. Also they do not use Styrofoam in their takeouts.

Food in this place may not tasked like a Michellin rated restaurant, but it was very solid, tasted good, and had excellent prices (the Lunch Special Pad Thai - a good sized portion - cost USD 6.90). Service is friendly. Do no expect luxury, but a simple thai place with solid food and great value!

We had take out food.
Food was good, especially the duck.
PadThai was ok.

I would recommend it. A bit outside of downtown.

We were expecting a great meal from the reviews. I'm guessing people don't know what "good Thai food" is like. My husband had Panang Curry I had Chicken Pad Thai both were very mild and plain not real favorful. We were disappointed with the food. The coconut soup was good! Would not recommend this restaurant -go to Tommy Wok's in Carmel - way better!

This is a cozy little restaurant on a quiet side street in downtown Monterey. The food and service are very good and the atmosphere is calm and friendly. It is NOT noisy inside, you'll be able to enjoy a nice conversation. I've eaten here about twelve times and continue to come back. I've brought several friends and they've all liked it. Portions are just right and so are the prices - it's a very good value.

It's right around the corner from Denny's on that little side street, which is technically Munras avenue. Find Denny's at the corner of Abrego/Munras & Fremont, then walk around the corner on the West side of Denny's and Krua Thai is ten second walk away. Another way to look at it: If you were walking OUT the front doors of Denny's, you would turn left, walk 50 feet to the side street, turn left again, then walk another 200 feet and you're there.
