We took a chance on a new Thai restaurant this evening and we pleasantly surprised. The service was good - beverages kept filled - food came out hot and fresh. Definitely want to try the vegetable egg rolls (don't skimp on the sauce - great flavor paring.) For a Thai adventure give the Pad Kee Mao (chicken) and Pad See... More

We went in to this restaurant with am inviting ambiance. We were sat quickly. The server, paet, was prompt. They were quite understaffed. We ordered shrimp roll appetisers, seafood salad, Tom yum soup, papaya salad. The Tom yum soup was so sweet it could have been used as a syrup on pancakes. The shrimp appetizers were half burnt and very... More

Hit this place looking for some rice and vegetables. Found in and then some! Stopped in for a lunch on a Sunday afternoon and was very pleased with the food, the service, and the portions. I'd recommend this place without hesitation.

There's something wrong with the world when this wonderful restaurant is way down on the list, just ahead of fast food restaurants. What gives? The food here is consistently fantastic, whether for lunch or dinner. We've taken many friends here and they always love it. One was a world traveler and said it was some of the best Thai food...

We went to Noodle Wave for Thai food, it was our date night, we always like to try new tastes and are adventurous diners. The food here did not disappoint. We started with the Tempura Asian Water Spinach. This was both light, and intensely flavored, unlike anything I've had before, she had the Chicken Pad Thai (delicious) I had the... More

Authentic Thai curries - my only complaint is I think they go the heat levels switched between my husband's dish and mine (we ordered different things). But after we switched meals, we were both happy.

The place is clean and well appointed. Wait staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Ordered the Tom Ka (3 star spicy) with no meat but added broccoli and a side of jasmine rice. Large portion came quickly and piping hot! The rice was fresh and just as sticky as I would expect. 2 of us had a splendid experience and... More

I really enjoyed my visit! Food was great. On Saturdays, they give dinner portions during lunch...Dinner sizes are HUGE, shareable! I got chicken Pad Thai and my husband got the lunch special, which comes with soup, entree and dessert. I totally recommend the coconut ice-cream for dessert-- sooooo good!

My wife and I ate here for dinner after reading some good reviews. We both love Thai food and were pleased with the food and service here. It's a small cozy place with good sized portions. Would definitely recommend and we will be returning.

This place was really good! I visited with my mom and we were looking for a place where we could get something to-go. We decided on this place because we hadn't ever had Thai food before and we wanted to try something new. The menu is relatively large with a lot of variety. It was very easy to find something...
