Never mind this is a small place in a small town, this is among the best Thai we've had anywhere. The Pad Thai is as good as it gets. Don't be fooled by the plain setting, the difficulty of finding the place, the nearby road repairs or even the service. This place is very special, and worth the trip while... More

Wonderful food carefully prepared with authenticity and served by the friendly co-owner. Over the years they have become like family and we go out of our way to share the good food with out-of-towners. Plan to have some leftovers to take home if you order family style...the servings are generous.

The food is amazing--I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal there. The hours and service can be slightly unpredictable because the only employees are the cook (who is from Thailand) and her husband. It is well worth your time to have a meal there! Note that you need to bring cash or a checkbook, because they... More

Authentic Thai food in a cozy setting. Locals make this place a regular place to visit. It is only open several days a week, so make sure you check out the schedule beforehand. It is a small "mom and pop" kind of place.

The original Thai restaurant in the community and still the best. I've been a customer for 18 years and always look forward to a return visit. John and Rudy run a great establishment with authentic food at very good prices.

Had dinner here tonight. My pad thai was the best I've ever eaten, and my wife enjoyed her chicken vegetable soup. Portions are huge and very reasonably priced. Cash or check only, no credit cards. Restaurant is difficult to find but worth it!

I had the sweet and sour tofu and pineapple dish. Oh, it was good!!! We had friends along who said it was the best meal ever eaten! Rudi is such a wonderful cook. We never miss going there when we are in town.

If you're looking for a place where you wait for over an hour to be served, if you like being in a run down structure that causes you to wonder how it passed code or health inspection, and if you want absolutely the worst Pad See Yu in the world, then this is your place. First, any review that's prefaced... More

We've eaten at hundreds of Thai restaurants in Thailand and lots of them in the US. This is one of my favorites. In my opinion, Rudy makes the best Thai food in the world. Those who are looking for very light, delicate flavors may need to look elsewhere, but if you are looking for rich, delicious flavors Thai food, this... More

The food here is absolutely delicious! There is another Thai place in town, but the food here beats it and is cheaper. Also, love the service. The only reason I didn't rate a 5 is because the facility is a little run-down and I don't like having to make reservations to go out (which you do here), but those things... More
