“Doesn't look like much, but it's fantastic!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Got dragged here by the in-laws a few months ago. It turned out to be really really good. Their sushi is great, and their pad thai is phenominal. It's great for eat in or take out. Definitely worth a try.

“Im a Regular”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Service tends to be slow at times, but servers are very friendly once you get to know them. Sit at the sushi bar if you can, the sushi chef is great! You cant go wrong with anything you order!

“Mediocre and Slow”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We were drawn in by the terrific aroma just outside the restaurant when we parked our car; strong Thai spice notes. However, the food and service did not match. At 1:30PM on a Saturday afternoon we found the restaurant about half full; we waited a half hour for our orders to arrive and thought that seemed a bit slow. That slowness did persist throughout our visit; our waitress did not return to our table during our meal until we had finished eating; drink refills would have been appreciated. The Basil Leaves With Meat, the Red Curry, and the Thai Peppers Chop Suey were all bland to the point of need considerable additions from the provided spice tray. We have visited Thailand, taken Thai cooking classes, and enjoy dining in Thai restaurants on a frequent bass; this meal was mediocre.

“Excellent food!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is a wonderful place to eat. The staff is very friendly, the food is delicious and the portions are generous. Totally worth every penny! We live in town and prefer this Thai restaurant to the other Thai place on oak island.
