“HIGH ON THEIR THAI”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

My wife & I ate here recently & we're hooked. The wait staff, Terrence & Bussara, were so attentive and friendly, that we felt like old friends. The ambience of a sport's bar with really delicious Thai food was just short of amazing. We began with the Thai sampler, which was similar to others that we've had, but this one was was so much better.The Satay was soo good that I could've eaten it as an entree.The same could be said for the rest of the sampler: the vegie rolls, the fried tofu(delish) the steamed dumplings(to die for), & the calamari (crisp,tasty, & done just right). The Pad Thai, a national Thai dish, was so good that it defied our senses.Weve eaten this many times before,so what more can I say? We had it two chilis hot, just right for us. One of the owners, Sue, told us that the food is prepared Bangkok city style. Now, you don't have to go to Bangkok for great Thai food; you can get it here. We'll be back.

“Sports Bar? Thai Restaurant?? It's Both!!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

He's American. She's Thai.

There are TV's tuned to ESPN and "the game" of the moment, and typical sports bar food with burgers and sandwiches.

But the big surprise in this little strip mall secret is the wonderful Thai food!

There is a wide choice of curry's green, yellow, etc all prepared as hot or mild as you choose. Add shrimp or chicken. Prefer vegetables only?

There were many other Thai dishes, too.

Friendly, efficient staff who stayed on top of everything even during a lunch rush.

The shrimp curry was a little expensive for the serving size but it was very good.

“Very friendly and a unique menu that is full of great things.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Stopped in for lunch and had a very cold beer and hot food. Staff was pleasant and prompt. Really enjoyed the comfortable seating and ambiance. Calamari appetizer was great as was the steak wrap. My friend ordered the Thai sampler and remarked that the food was very good.

“Great variety.”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

All you pub favorites and a full Tai menu. My only complaint is NO DRINK SPECIALS. I would come here more if they would do that.
