“Best Thai Food Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

This is one of the few Thai restaurants in our area and it is by far the best. The food is soooo tasty, and a good spiciness, too, in case that is our thing (it is mine :})
Tried several dishes there so far, never disappointed, the classic curries are magnificent and they have great appetizers. It is a BYOB place and the food is not pricy at all and still fantastic! They do fast delivery as well, only downside might be the early closing hours (9.30 on weekdays, 10 pm on weekends).
It is a small but cozy, very authentic place.

We love it. Call for reservations as the ten or so small tables fill up fast.

Just tried this on a friend's recommendation. Fantastic choices, with the Red Curry as a particularly good choice.
