“Fabulous Thai Food in East Wenatchee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

My favorite kind of food is Thai, so I've been to Thai restaurants all over the country and in other countries around the world (as well as Thailand). I love this little restaurant in East Wenatchee, Washington. Three of us went to dinner there a couple of nights ago, and each ordered a different dish - a curry w/ chicken, a wide noodle dish w/ beef, and an eggplant dish w/ tofu. All were delicious! We thought it would be too much food to eat, but it was so good that we couldn't help ourselves, and we ate it all!
On top of all that, it was very reasonably priced

“Take Out on the double”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

We like to eat here, but we often just order out. It only takes about 10 minutes most days, and 20 minutes if they are really busy. Consider this for a picnic in the park along the river.

I always have the fresh spring rolls with the peanut sauce. My son gets red or yellow curry and fried rice. Hubby likes the bean dish (Phad Prik King I think?).

The only bad thing is that members of the same family own Spring Lotus and the Japanese restaurant nest to Macy's--so when they decide to close one, they close them all for family events. So, you might head over and find a sign on the door and nobody there once in a while.

“Outstanding food in humble surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

Food prepared at a much higher level of quality and authenticity than 99% of Wenatchee area offerings. The curry dishes are to die for, somehow lighting up every comfort zone associated with food, and probably some others for good measure.

The atmosphere is akin to other bare-bones establishments that specialize in foreign food. While it may not be the perfect setting for a marriage proposal, it does serve to reassure one's date that you know what good food looks like and where to find it.

“Great food, not so much atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Not a beautiful place or a good date spot but EXCELLENT Thai foods (ok, by Wenatchee standards, I know you CAN get better elsewhere but certainly not in Wenatchee). Take out would be a great idea if you don't want to sit under fluorescent lights.
