This is my favorite Thai restaurant. I've tried many, and what I like here is the atmosphere and the fact that they use more white meat than any other Thai place I've ever been to (I'm not really a fan of dark meat). I really like coming here for lunch. The lunch specials are a pretty good deal and their... More

Offers a large Thai menu. The PFR (Pineapple Fried Rice) comes with fresh pineapple, in a scooped-out pineapple bowl.

We had Panang curry and Pad Thai. Both were very good and typical Thai. The best part was the price was very reasonable (under $10).

Good Thai restaurant. Enjoyed dinner and the good Thai food. Nice area of downtown Claremont, California. Mixed vegetables and pineapple fried rice were quite tasty.

We have now been here 6 times in 2 months and do not live close. That is how good it is. We stumbled upon this while looking for a good place to stop on our way to Palm Springs and love Thai food and this is such a bargain, lovely atmosphere, fast service and friendly and helpful servers. There is... More

We visited here during graduation weekend for the Claremont Colleges so things were a bit crazy as far as noise levels and crowds, which is understandable. The food here is not really spicy but is very flavorful. On a recommendation, we ordered "family style" which was simply five different dishes including a Pad Thai, Pineapple Rice, Tofu, Yellow Curry, and... More

The Tom Ka Gui soup was definitely a little different, less creamy and spicier than I was used to for sure. I like it a bit more creamy. The Pad See Ewe was different as well but in a good way. The rice noodles were cooked properly and not over cooked like 99% of the places that I have gone.... More
