The parking lot is awkward and super cramped - just like the tables inside, set at angles around a curved wall that wedges people in when they sit on one side. The interior in general is shabby, dated, cheap and a little unkempt. The service...More

By far the worst Thai food we've ever had, anywhere in the world (and we've eaten it all over, including in Thailand). We got takeout here for a change because it has won "Best of Boulder" on many occasions. Firstly, all food was pretty cold...More

It may have been a bad night. Usually it was a reliable Thai food place. This time I was rather disappointed. The chicken dish was too salty and the chicken was undercooked and rubbery. Quite disappointing. It is a local place for us so I...More

Good solid food with great service at a reasonable price. I don't believe it's the best Thai food I've ever had, or even the best in Boulder. The service is good, friendly and fast and the price is very reasonable. Location is good for campus...More

Feels (and tastes) like Thailand: the chef, a woman of considerable charisma, runs the kitchen like a Thai military operation, with excellent results. Clearly they're making a big effort to incorporate fresh local produce -- of which there is, in summer at least, an abundance...More

We have eaten here before but, I hadn't written a review. While the college kids from the university vote this place into the top Thai place, it lacks the flavor profiles we experienced when in Thailand. On this last trip, the curry was flat and...More
