“Great find -- delicious and reasonably priced!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

We were at Family Kingdom and wanted to eat something other than amusement park fare for dinner. I came across this restaurant through Yelp and with our kids in town, we made our way there after a 7-minute walk. We got there around 8:30 and the restaurant was completely empty. It was very nicely decorated and clean, which was quite a surprise given the contrast of the rundown strip mall where it's located.

The two older women working there greeted us, cooked and served the food. They were so friendly. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes that made it hard to choose. We ordered papaya salad, tom yum soup, pad thai, and ginger chicken and everything tasted fresh and delicious. So glad we came across this place. If you're in the Myrtle Beach area near Family Kingdom, definitely give it a try. Don't be deterred by the strip mall location. I hope they're able to stay in business. Would definitely return to try many of their other dishes.

“Small place great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

You have to be on lookout for this restaurant, as its a small place in a tiny plaza with a small sign. We happened upon it looking for a place for lunch, and seen it by chance.

Normally we would not go to a place, which has no cars or customers inside, but we are glad that we did. We were in the mood for some Thai food.

This place was run by a lady who greeted you, sat you at one of about eight tables and also cooked the meal. The chicken pad thai was excellent. Good portions with a reasonable price.

Take the time to try this place, you won't be disappointed.
