“average thai”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

I tried the basil chicken. The place is nice and very clean yet you have to order up front which is a bit uncomfortable standing there looking at the menu. The food got really fast to the table. Temperature of the food was good and the veggies were cooked to perfection. I had to get up and go to the counter for one free refill which is another thing that bothered me. The food overall is good but there is better thai around the urbana side. As I said before the place is clean but it needs music to create a better atmosphere, I could hear all the noise and foreign coversations from the kitchen.

“Great taste, but small portions now!”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Still the same owners as the original over 10 years ago. Best dishes here are: Basil chicken (Thai style), Tom Yom noodle soup (spicy with ground chicken), Basil Fried rice (beef).

Had their pad Thai which I thought was rather too sweet. Had their panang curry which was terrible.
