“Good service, prices and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This place has nice Thai food for a good price. While it was not the best I've had, it was tasty and the service was okay too. It has lots of pretty plants but it would have been nice if they did more to remove its Pizza Hut ambiance that included brick veneer, trapezoid windows, and valance cafe curtains. I suspect the Phuket beer best explaines their feeling toward doing much more for their interior design.

“Located in a converted Pizza Hut”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

All of our dishes were well prepared. The serving sizes were generous, leaving us plenty of left overs. The only negative is the atmosphere as it still looks like an old Pizza Hut, but it is quiet enough for easy conversation.

“Fun Little Place with GREAT Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

We had driven by this place several times. It does not look like much from the outside but the inside is very nicely done. The food was just incredible and very flavorful and quickly served. The service was great too and we loved the very moderate price. It's not fancy and you don't have to dress up to go there. But since the food is so good, we will certainly be going back again.

“Great, reasonably priced Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

The Vegetarian Satay was remarkably good! The Thai eggplant, which I got with tofu, was awesome and very reasonable. I went with 2 friends. We all loved it.

“Excellent neighborhood Thai joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

If you are in North Park, this is probably the best Thai place in the neighborhood. It's in a former Pizza Hut next to a strip mall, so that should adjust your expectations for atmosphere appropriately. But the food and service are very good, and reasonable prices. If you don't feel like the trek to Sab-E-Lee, or aren't quite up for the chili and weird ingredients there, this is your spot.
