We chanced to eat here when another restaurant was closed, and were we pleasantly surprised. The food is delicious and spicy without being too hot. The peanut sauce is really special! Service was polite and eager to explain the dishes.

Clean, nice environment. When ever I'm visiting a new place I hut down Thai restaurants and order panang curry, so I've got some big expectations. 1-10 with 10 being amazing, it was a 4 on flavor, chicken was a little fatty.

Been there many times! Food is well prepared and presented. Service is attentive. Curry beef noodle salad and eggplant are my favorites.

The food is amazing. Whatever I order I absolutely love! The place isn't that big and sitting indoors can get a bit noisy (not reccomended for large groups), but outside is great - the heaters outside make it enjoyable year round.

I have had the pleasure of frequenting this restaurant when I am in Sacramento. It gets great marks and deserves them. Small and unassuming, the smells hit your senses as soon as you walk into the door (maybe even outside the restaurant). The menu has very good variety and it's all so yum, yum, yum. I had the papaya salad this time which was spicey and refreshing. Along with the mussels dish, I felt like I had feasted. My friends who live in Sacramento love the green curry, and I also like the egg plant dish. The people serving are friendly and helpful, and the food comes quickly. Don't miss this place if you like Thai food!
