My Girlfriend and I ate here recently and the food was great. I got the Pad Thai and my Girlfriend got the yellow curry and tom yum soup. It was great and the service was amazing!

I usually look for a thai restaurant wherever I go on vacation. I'm in Big Bear for a few days and saw several adds. It is right on Village Rd by all the shopping. It's not big but has an inviting patio on the street....More
