Just had some chicken phad Thai and spring rolls for take out. Staff was super friendly. Order was ready quickly and hot. The food was delicious. Just spicy enough to satisfy the craving.

I am a local, and this place is always packed... it is small quaint and a nice quiet place to have some amazing Thai food. You must try the spicy duck... The Crispy Chicken and rice is also Delicious and the Curry is as well.

I have been trying to go to this restaurant for some time but never seemed to queue up the time with theirs. But today I managed to get in for a quick lunch. Basic interior but I was here for the food. Had the green curry... my favorite. The sauce was very pale and very mildly flavored with curry. Disappointing... More

It is very small, so plan to either wait or go early. The owner is a sweetie-pie, and will come over to shmooze if she is not to busy. I have never had a bad meal here. There is not a lot of room between tables, my only complaint.

Four of us had dinner at this restaurant. We shared our appetizers and main courses. All were excellent. Hard to choose a favourite. Prices are reasonable as are the serving portions. It was full the night we went, but service was very good and a the wait from ordering to receiving the meal was appropriate. All the main dishes were... More

We enjoyed our meal. We had Penang Curry, phad Thai, thom kha soup, vegy spring roll, cashew chicken. We love Thai food and this was decent. The service was incredibly slow, so be patient and have time on your hands.

some reviewers complained about the size and about the fanciness. well, Asian restaurants are not known in general about being fancy but they make the best meal. Small restaurants like Kasira preserve the quality of Thai traditional cooking. Also not in a very busy area it was quite busy on a Saturday evening. The only suggestion to make is that... More
