Being vegetarians we rarely get a good selection of different menu items but at Pookies, we were not only given the satisfaction of picking a one or two dishes from every category they were all excellent tasting too! Pookie is so sweet and caters to her customers as if her family is eating there. Takes good care of her customers... More

We got both the mixed vegetable and pork spring rolls. They were hot, crispy and served beautifully. We then got Nua Ta Krai (Stir... More

Lovely small restaurant with excellent food. There were 13 of us and we found the service to be slow. The food however, was well waiting for. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere relaxing and very pleasant. We had no trouble communicating with each other, even when other patrons came into the restaurant. I will definitly go back as there are... More

We were looking for a place with good food at reasonable prices that everyone in our group would enjoy. We all found our meals were delicious and the service was great. It's a wonderful place to go to.with a group of friends or as a family or couple. Highly recommended!

Terrific ambience and meticulously clean from top to bottom. Attentive service and piping hot dishes. Hard to find, but we'll worth it when you do

I ordered the Spicy Beef Curry.It should be called Spicy Beef Potatoes as there were 4 half spuds and 2 chunks of stringy beef.The Pad Thai was passable as was the Thai Chicken Stir Fry.The appetizers should be put out of their misery.The Fish Cakes were lacking in protein and packed with carbs(flour).The Spring Rolls were supermarket style straight from...

We are fortunate that this is a local restaurant for us. We go fairly often and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and tastes great. It is a family affair, friendly and fantastic service. Go...you won't be disappointed.

I went there for my lunch and a ordered a meal coming with a soup and a spring roll. The lunch menu is mid-range but for the quality it is actually not bad.The service there is very nice and polite. The restaurant is very clean.

We visited Pookies Thai for lunch. It was our first time there. The restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere. (Even the rest rooms were attractive and very clean.) The service was good. We were served a hot and sour soup to start. It was very light, but had a nice little bite. I had the pad Thai with seafood. It... More
