“Excellent Thai food”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This is a very small restaurant with limited seating. But the line of customers out the door says it all. The food is excellent and even if you can't find seating, buy your food to go and either eat in the park or the marine park two blocks away.

Right downtown, a block from Percival Landing boardwalk.
Well done Thai food that is a cut above, always fresh.

“Quality and classy environs”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

This is one of The area's favorite Thai places. They had to expand! Great decor and one of the staff did some innovative, variable color ligting, so clever. Always busy here and now there is a branch in Tumwater, too.

“Best Thai Food Ever”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We go here almost every week. The food is excellent regardless of what you order. Prices are fair. Prepare to wait on the weekends unless you arrive early. I have never ordered anything I didn't like.

“Superior Thai food”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Curries to die for, unreal flavors, so good, so very good. Have had many entrees, and any one of them would satisfy me. The Tom Yum Talay is delightful, and hard to make at home with so many Thai basil, lime, pungent and sweet flavors all melted together, blended with the freshest of seafood , not to mention the coconut milk addition. The only ingredient that could improve their offering is fresh mussels locally from Tayor Seafoods.

Service is extraordinaire.
