We went with a party of 9 to dinner the other night. Most of us got Pad Thai. One person did order a more spicy meal - but he didn't taste much spice. He has decided to tell them that spice is good for him. I loved my Chicken Pad Thai - I had ordered it in my 3 visits.... More

Still trying to find an amazing authentic Thai restaurant. Food ok. The appetizer with the bite of a spring roll and tasteless chicken soup not food at all. I had the chicken Panang which was ok but not crave-able. Then topped of with a very small donut desert just ok for a fried donut. Not sure I would try this... More

Have eaten here several times. This time was lunch with local and out of town family. Food is always delicious and so fresh. Great atmosphere and staff. Curry was delicious and perfect spice/heat. Love the little touches, soup before meal with amazing spring roll, and dessert donuts after. Will keep coming here! Out of town family from South Florida also... More

Ordered amazing land with chicken. It was terrible! Sweet & no Thai seasoning or a trace of authenticity!

We started with the (not fried) spring rolls, covered with translucent rice paper,with shrimp and raw greens inside, and a good peanut dipping sauce. We then got two lunch entrees that included chicken rice soup, and a fried spring roll. I had a vegetarian Pad Thai, and my husband had a stir fried vegetable dish with chicken. Both were excellent.... More

Had Red Curry and it was very good and the mango and sticky rice was very good as well. When I get back to this area I will go back for dinner.

This is a nice place to eat ordinary Thai food; nothing unique or special about it, but nothing bad about it either. It has a nice variety, including macrobiotic offerings. Everyone in my group of six was satisfied with the food, though again, there was no great praise for it. I'd recommend the pad thai over the traditional pad see... More

We didn't realize that prior to your meal, you are served soup (either vegetable or chicken) with spring roll. I ordered Pad Thai noodles with nuts. It was delicious, a bit spicy too. After your meal, you are provided with a small portion of complimentary Thai donuts with sauce n nuts. So good!! Then for dessert, ordered the coconut sticky... More

Have visited before and have always had excellent attentive service and good food. The appetizer sampler with 2 dipping sauces was fresh and tasty as was the duck and ginger chicken.
