“Adventurous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

They have completely redone the interior from the previous Thai restaurant. Feels more adventurous. Menu was not as extensive; and buffet is gone. HOWEVER, food we had was delicious! Some classic Thai dishes, and some new ones for us.

“Decent Thai / Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Ate here last night and some of their items are a little pricey. I ordered the rolls and the beef soup. The spring rolls were delicious but the soup seemed a little watered down and it didn't have the thinly sliced meat that I'm used to (speaking of which I don't recall them having a pork option either, just chicken beef or shrimp) but chunks of beef. Unfortunately, after eating the majority of my food I took another patron's recommendation and added a little of their peppers to my food, a huge mistake. Instantly I started sweating and dealing with burning lips but I was able to eat three more bites of soup :) Lastly, the wait staff are some of the best I've seen in quite awhile.

“Very Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

We were back last weekend it was very poor. The food is inconsistent and so is the wait staff. We will not be back and time soon.

“inconsistent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Amy's used to own this- food is abit inconsistent as it was in the old Amy's Thai. I love Thai food but tend to drive much farther into Mechanicsburg for Bangkok Wok as the quality is consistently better.

“Fine Thai restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We have visited this restaurant for many years, it changed management (and maybe chef also) within the last year or so, the menu is moderately varied, in our experience it is well prepared Thai food, not adventurous - but that is because Central PA is not adventurous, the wait staff is inconsistent, they are BYOB, seafood preparations are good, the Phad Thai is average, the lunch buffet offers a nice glimpse of the chefs skills, the decor is a bit kitschy and cramped, I would recommend but not for special quiet dinners,
