“Crazy good food”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Ok...very small, very crowded...ordered to go. Food is crazy good--best Thai food I've eaten. Yum!! Atmosphere for authentic "hole-in-the-wall" dining can't be beat.

“Does the hair cost extra?”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I ordered the pad thai with chicken to go. It was burnt and had a hair cooked into the eggs. This was my 1st impression, I won't be back.

“The Customer is Always Right?”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I can't say anything about the food that hasn't already been said, it's great. And the place is kinda small, which is why a first come first served policy is a very good thing. Unless the owner would rather seat more people. I walked in the door when they opened and sat at the counter by myself, and was subsequently asked to move twice in about 10 minutes. I think this is a terrible business practice and I hope that in the future, they will give more consideration to the people who arrive first.

“Great Thai for great price”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Tough to find a place (let alone Thai) that has better food for the price and speed. Not sure how Tom is able to keep up his pace for hour after hour, but the quality is consistently great. The wait for the food is usually pretty short, although the smells coming out of Tom's makes it a tough wait. The restaurant itself is somewhat dive-y, but you have the ability to watch your dish be cooked. I would recommend sitting at the bar/main table (but avoid the bar seats furthest into the restaurant - the edge is used for prep area for the food and waitresses will have to reach over/around you).
