It's fine. It has the virtue of being close to where we stayed (Sagewater Spa). Nothing special but not terrible.

Recommended by the Sagewater Spa, I had dinner early here one evening and enjoyed the Panang Curry Prawns very much.

Wonderful food. Authentic decor and food. Excellent vegetarian choices. Peaceful atmosphere with full meals. Very tasty with as much/little heat as you wish.

This is a small town restaurant with authentic food flavors. The owner/operator puts their personal touch into the restaurant. It's the usual family owned (kids doing homework in the kitchen)establishment. We enjoy the food quite a bit!

the food was good and the prices were not bad. The only complaint is the service. We had to get up 3 times to order food but we had a bottle of wine to keep us company.

Mine came perhaps 20 minutes later, and our daughter shared what I had while waiting another ten minutes for hers to... More

Really good Thai food and cute inside(outside looks like a pit, bars on the windows) but the server was totally grouchy and absent good thing we didn't need much. It is the ONLY restaurant near where we were staying that we gave a second glance. Staff at Aqua Soleil(do not stay there) rec'd Thai Palms.

We read other favorable reviews (which I now believe to be plants by the restaurant itself)...seemed like a good down home, Thai joint. Four of us dined at lunch, the service was slow, distracted (as in they forgot that one out of the four did not get served their meal!!!). I was desperate for water (because my garlic combo dish...
