Ignore the review by jdubbs below. None of the dishes the person ordered were Thai. Won ton soup? Cmon. The food is delicious and authentic and the people are very nice. I will return.

A very well priced, small Thai restaurant which provides authentic Thai food in good portions in a fairly simple environment. I loved the noddle dished I have tried there. Good service too. Excellent value for money.

I picked this restaurant based off of its reviews but was a little leery when we walked by. The restaurant was not nearly as appealing looking as some of the ones closer to the waterfront. It appears very small when you look through the window...More
