“A Serious Problem -- not well taken care of”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Friends and I stopped in for lunch recently, based on the good reviews. We ordered the Thai Tea (which is sweet) and there developed a serious problem. One sip and the taste was terribly sour. We told the waiter that something was terribly wrong with the tea. He took it back, and came back saying that someone had put salt in the tea instead of sugar!! No apologies were given, no replacement pro-gratis was offered -- nothing. Our food was promptly served and we were not pleased with either our noodle dish or our fried rice dish. (Note: All of us are world travelers and seldom have problems or complaints with a meal.) While both our dishes were tasty, both were undercooked. We left very disappointed and will not return.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We loved our meal. Coming from the east cost where there are loads of good Thai food restaurants, I was skeptical about Thai food in the Rockies I am not a foodie so I can not wax poetically about the culinary merits but I can say that the food was wonderful. My 8 year old daughter ordered simple fried rice to play it safe and it was the best fried rice I have ever tasted.
GREAT PRICE, AMAZING VALUE
The owners are from Nepal and were so sweet to talk with.
It was a lovely evening and a breath of fresh air from the cliche mountain men fair at the other restaurants.
The atmosphere matches the price, a bit college dorm feeling but it makes the surprise of the excellent food even better. This is not a marketing generated business, it is the real thing, authentic.
Thank you!!!

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

I had the hot pad prig pow which was absolutely delicious! I love spicy food, and the "hot" level was perfect. The hottest level they offer is "Thai hot", which must be like lava. I look forward to going there again during my next visit to Estes Park!

“Excellant food & service”

We went early to beat the crowd. Had great service and ordered what the waitress recommended. Great Thai food. Sat by the windows with a great view. We would recommend this restaurant.
