Not the most exciting Thai food place to visit, but good food at decent prices. This place is located just beside beer run, and there is very limited parking and seating. From this perspective it seems like Pad Thai is more of a take out...More

The food was very good! We got the drunken noodles, red curry, and two appetizers. The red curry was definitely spicy! The food was so good, I wish the portions were larger! They have seats inside to dine-in or you can take-out (what we did)....More

We came after calling to find out if and when they served lunch Memorial Day, we were told they serve lunch all day. Hey, ok! Well, what that means is they charge dinner prices all day. So we ended up ordering 2 spring rolls, and...More

Ok, the decor may be lacking, but the open kitchen (likely unintentionally chic; it is really like eating in this family's home) is neat and the food is worth the trip. They had many specials, mostly seafood, and the whitefish curry did not disappoint. My...More

We had a delicious dinner of steamed dumplings and two curries. It's a very small restaurant with a great vibe and very pleasant staff. Highly recommend for a good meal at a fair price.
