Thought their Satay appetizer was pretty good and even my Son enjoyed it. He's not usually up for anything exotic or different. But, he ate well. This was my 3rd or 4th time there. I knew what to expect. I'll definitely go again.

I've only been there once but the pad Thai was phenomenal. Proteins weren't over cooked and the sauce was great. You could taste the palm sugar and tamarind. Noodles were "toothsome," just how I like them; they brought out chilled Sambal with the plate, which...More

I really enjoyed the Shrimp Pad Thai, a lot of the food for the money. The restaurant is dark and gloomy, but very busy. I prefer to do takeout.

Not great Thai. We ordered Pad Thai. The flavor was a bit bland but what un-nerved me was that the food was room temperature. It was not hot. Don't think I would eat there again.

This is a small neighborhood place, that's great in the summer for outdoor dining on Taylor street, The food is really good, especially the Tom Kha Gai and yellow curry. They can spice to your taste. If it's not nice enought outside for the patio...More

Just as the reviews before, the staffs were very Rude. They don't care about the customers, really! Thailand is the land of smile. If you ever been to Bangkok or Phuket, this is indeed the case. You guys really disgrace that title. Luckily, they have...More
