It's tiny; too crowded; long wait to be seated. There was no great payoff in the food. Would recommend the sticky rice. Other dishes were not worth the price or the wait. There's another sister restaurant on 39th ave that might be roomier but haven't tried it out.

Four of us had dinner there last night. We quickly decided on appetizers for the table (the Kanom Jeeb is delicious and the Thai Spare Ribs are quite good) and thought we would ordered those while we decided what we wanted for our main course. We were told no, you must order all at once (not very politely). We got our dinner order together (both the sliced crispy duck and the chicken in peanut sauce were very good) and when we were asked what kind of rice we wanted (it comes with the entree), one of our party asked for the Thai Fried Rice. We were told sorry no substitutes (white, jasmine, brown or curry only). We were willing to pay any additional charge but were told no, only those four. Though out the meal we felt they were trying to move us along. We were'nt eating slowly. The entire meal took us less than 90 minutes. Nevertheless, busboys came clear our plate several times while we were still eating. To sum it up, the food was average to pretty good but the service left a bad taste in our mouths.

Really good, not a big Thai food person. The appetizers were great, one of those places your better off just ordering a bunch of appetizers. The pumpkin custard was weird. The steak cubes with cilantro was good but I wouldn’t get it again. My boyfriend ordered the ahi tuna, it was very fresh. I would go back but order some different things, everything that came by the table looked amazing.
