Top quality Thai food. Service good enough. Good weekday lunch deals. Dinner prices tad high for Thai food but quality is worth it. Average ambience.

“Good Food, horrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

After we were seated, we sat there for 10 minutes before being addressed. When our waiter finally arrived it was only to inform us that she would be leaving. At this time we had to wait another 10 minutes for the new waiter.
When we finally got to order, my husband asked for peanut satay as an appetizer. two minutes later the waiter returned to ask if we wanted any appetizers.......just the one we ordered. I can forgive small mistakes but it only got worse from there. I order meal with brown rice, and my husband ordered chicken pad thai. WHen the meal arrived there was white rice and tofu instead of chicken. The white rice was replaced quickly but the change from tofu to chicken pad thai took longer and i finished my meal by the time my husbands meal was returned with no silverware to accompany it.

There were no apologies made for the bad service or the mistakes. The food was good, really good. But it has to be the worst service in Paso and we will never go back.

“Good Thai place in Paso”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Consistently good Thai food right on the Park in downtown Paso. Not open very late but food is always very good (eaten once every trip to town) and staff is very efficient. If you like good Thai food, you will be happy here and not expensive either. And as its Paso, pretty good wine selection as well which is not usual for most Thai places.

Came here with friends, our waiter had a lot of great advice. Food was delish! They're pretty generous with the amount of seafood in their dishes. Definitely a bargain.
