Small restaurant that is big on taste. All our favorites including massaman curry and panang curry. Busy place so service was a bit slow but no big issue. Take out would be perfect.

This is the best small, family owned Thai Restaurant in the area. We travel for an hour to eat here when we can. The food is all made from scratch and the highest quality. The establishment is clean, the personnel are very friendly and the pricing is very reasonable for the quantity and quality. You cannot beat the lunch menu... More

We had an early dinner here prior to a concert at the UU Dome. The food was spectacular and we will definitely be back. He had beef with broccoli. Not too adventurous, but it was really good.

My wife loves Thai food. I usually order something fairly neutral, so I can't say a lot about the quality of the food. But the atmosphere here is one of the most tranquil to be found anywhere.

I love the decor but its a very small place. Ordered the plum wine ( which was really good) the dumplings came out nice and hot and they did an outstanding job on the pad thai! The waitress seemed very busy but she was still really efficient and attentative to our needs. We had a great time thank you!

The three of us enjoyed our meals but the food was just ok. We were hoping for more flavor and spice. We would probably not return.

Found this restaurant with the trip advisor application. Amazing food, had the drunken noodle with chicken lunch special. It was amazing and cost less than 8 dollars. Will be back for sure :)

We've had Penang Curry a few times and it's always good!!! Compared to other Thai places, I believe it's more authentic. Also "Amazing Eggplant" is good too! I love this Thai restaurant the best in Tampa!

Traveling for business in Temple Terrace we found this Thai restaurant. It is excellent! I've never dined in always take out so I cannot speak to the service or decor but the take out will not disappoint. Whenever we are in the area we eat here.

Thank Annette S
