We enjoyed a buffet lunch here and found a good selection of both veg and non veg Thai food. The place is small / cozy and the service was very good.

Was here with some friends for dinner a few weeks ago. We dined family style, splitting some of the tom kha soup for which they are famous (and rightfully so, it was quite good if not amazing) and then a series of entrees. The meat options were sort of bland but they cooked the veggies nicely so can't complain about... More

I visited here on a solo business trip in March 2016. I had their spring rolls and pad thai, both of which were very tasty. My main complaint with the restaurant on that day was the scent. It was odd; not terrible, but for me, it was off-putting. I would recommend the restaurant for take-out, but I probably wouldn't eat... More

I had the buffet lunch which was too good to pass up for the price. The food was good as far as all you can eat buffet food. There was an excellent selection of food and they kept the trays fresh. My friend ordered the Pra-Ram chicken and said it was excellent. The service was very good.

Ordered green curry chicken and it was wonderfully full of eggplant, zucchini and green beans. Coconut milk and basil in sauce was subtle. Brown rice absorbed this delicious dish. Ordered coconut drink but it wasn't too fresh. Dessert was sticky rice and coconut ice cream. Nice finish. Server was attentive and service was prompt.

You've heard of not judging a book by it's cover, this is no exception to the rule. An apparent "hole in the wall" served some of the best Thai food I have had in years. Cooked and presented perfectly, my mouth is watering as I write this review. I had the Pad Kee Mao and asked for medium spice. It... More

I went there for the lunch buffet - awesome lunch. They had curry, ground beef with string beans, which was better than I expected since I don't like string beans that much. The won tons were good, tofu and dessert. Also had the beef curry which had a great mild flavor and the Thai iced tea was also very good.... More

Service was slow since they were undermanned and at one point before even ordering, they told us they just ran out of food so they had someone get more. We ended up getting the very last pumpkin and the red curry pumpkin special was pretty good. The curry seemed a tad bit watered down to me, who's used to pretty... More

Attentive and relaxed service. Very friendly. Food was excellent. Had the Panang Curry and had it medium. TIP: their medium is probably a 4 out of 5 on most Thai scales. They also offered spicy and extra spicy. Medium was just right for me and I like it really hot. So be careful. Also had the Mango and sticky rice.... More

Great selection. Everything we tried was tender with great sauces. Not a Thai expert but seemed authentic. Service is a little slow
