Upon entering the restaurant, I thought it was tastefully decorated (simple and not over-done), cheerful, and immaculately clean. (Lovely fresh flowers everywhere.) The waiter was very friendly and gave us great service. The food tasted good, great presentation and we enjoyed our meal very much. We would return there often if we lived in the area!

Best Thai in the area...by far. Super food, excellent service and very reasonable prices. We're locals and eat out frequently. Portsmouth has tons of great places to eat. This is one of our favorites. If you like Thai, this is a must try - lunch or dinner.

Walking by the board out front had advertisements for burritos and beer. Figured out the sign from across the alley belonged to the Mexican place and smiled. Walked in and it seemed like a French place. Very clean- but odd- black and white pics of flowing water. No music. No people. Asked to see a menu and the prices were dinner prices. Dumplings app was teeny tiny but good. Spring rolls fresh. Ordered the pad see-ew, deluxe pad Thai, pork ribs, mataman curry, and the kids satay chicken. Everything was so thoughtfully prepared. The sticky rice for the pork was brought in a basket steamed in a leaf. Chewy succulent perfection. The curry had notes of tamarind. Pad see-ew had generous portions of beef. Sauce was perfect. Pad Thai had eggs, shrimp and chicken in it. Not merely noodles. All in all was very surprised by the quality of food. Don't mind paying for good value. Would I go back? Yes! But add a little Thai to your decor or at least some Thai music. The atmosphere was odd indeed.

We went to eat dinner here on our first night in Portsmouth. The service and food were both excellent. The portions were more than adequate and fulfilling. We wished we had a fridge and microwave in our hotel room to take the leftovers back with us to enjoy later. Everything was fresh and made to order. Highly recommend it!
