“Still absolutely delicious Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Updating our review from a couple of years ago. The crab rangoon is still the tastiest ever. It is a must have. There was a special on for 3, but the usual appetizer of 6 was not much more money. The special drink was reasonably strong. The lettuce-wrapped beef and the Panang curry both delicious and ample portions. We got to sit outside again, and once again with lovely live folk music, "Porch Music" from a duo with great voices and a great repertoire. We got there early enough after opening that there wasn't really a wait. It was also a weekday. (Last year we went by later in the evening on a weekend and it was too mobbed - which was fine because there was very live loud music, I guess for a weekend crowd.) The trick with outdoor seating is if a sudden windstorm comes along, it might blow rain or dust at you and your dinner. However, it can otherwise be a delightful summer breeze. We'll try to go back even before this trip is over.

“Fresh Authentic Thai Food in a small Mountain Town, Tingles my Tastebuds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Very busy place, and there is a reason for it. If you have ever been to Thailand, you will recognize many of these dishes and the flavors are right on. Start with Larb Gai (Spicy Ground Chicken Salad) or the Spicy Beef Salad --- make sure to ask for Sticky rice to go with those salads---- and Tom Kha ( Coconut Soup, add the Shrimp). also try one of the Lobster Rice Wraps. If you like it simple and not to spicy, the Drunken Noodle hits the spot. Live on the edge? Try the Whole Fish with Volcano Sauce, it is very common and a favorite to Thai people, head and all. All of the Curry Dishes are delicious. If you like Crispy Duck, try it with a popular Thai Basil Sauce. You can tell I went there a few times :) Always end it with Thai Custard. Eat it family style so you can taste all the dishes...like in Thailand.

“just horrible?...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I'm sorry, but if coconut soup (me favorite indeed) is sour it is just awful. I don't talk about waiting time (45 minutes...). Total disappointment.
