Simple interior nothing to write home about but the food was very good from two people with extensive SE Asian travel experience. The waiter was friendly and young, and is going to Thailand for a month this December with the restaurant's owners---great family owned place, not much to look at. Great value for what was served. Recommended!

We passed this little place driving down 101, looking for some place to eat. After a quick glance at other Tripadvisor reviews, we decided to give it a whirl. We were so glad we did! The food was excellent, with generous portions. They were able to adjust the spice level in each dish according to our individual needs. We tried the massaman curry, veggie fried rice and a sweet and sour veggie dish. They were all excellent. We will gladly be back again!

Don't judge a book by its cover! This restaurant has probably seen better days. The outside looks like it could use a coat of paint and a few of the inside booths have duct tape; however, our food was delicious, the staff was fabulous and the price was even better. Three of us ate lunch and the total price was cheaper than my husband's entree at a pricier restaurant. We even had left overs! I felt very comfortable taking my three year old here.....now she is a big fan if Thai ice tea.

Particularly good flavored Thai. Ordinary decor dining room. Fast service, both taking the order and bringing the food. Collectively we ordered fried rice, Pad Thai, and curry, each was wonderfully flavored, adequate portions, we left with wonderful boxes for our evening snack. Very accommodating for gluten allergy, making curry especially gluten free.

We were hungry when we went in but certainly not when we left. My husband and I had Pad Thai with Tofu and Mamassa (Yellow) curry. The portions were so huge that we took half home for the next day. Lucky our hotel had a fridge! Fast service, polite young waiters.
