“Excellent Pad See Ew”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2011

My colleague and I arrived there at about 6 PM on Tuesday, July 12th. This is a small strip mall restaurant right on the southwest corner of 1st and Trimble. It has a modest number of tables. Several other patrons were there. We were seated right away. The Thai Iced Tea was good, and the beef pad see ew was outstanding! Nice and juicy. Sweet and flavorful. They had no sticky rice and custard, so I settled on the vanilla ice cream and custard. Huge scoop of ice cream. I couldn't even finish it. The sticky rice was very tasty. My colleague and I both ended up taking home half of our main dishes. I would go back there again and order the same main dish and Thai iced tea, but I would go to the Old Siam at 1111 W El Camino Real in Sunnyvale for sticky rice and custard.

Some of the best tofu pad see ew I've had. I rate the food higher than Kung Thai, IMHO. Very busy at lunch, you need to get there early.
