The food is decent, but nothing special. It's literally the same stuff they serve down the street at Pon Prom, but double and triple the price. I do not go here, and frankly don't know why people pay the outrageous prices.

Owners are natives and tailor the food to your requests if you are bold enough to suggest what you want and how you want it. Go for it. The Tastes are terrific. We're locals and go back often.

Ever wondered what prison food in Thailand tastes like? Now is your chance to find out, prepare for the horror of Thai prison food. What a waste of money, this place takes advantage of being the only spot on mercer island. Paying good money for bad food is unforgivable, I don't pay to suffer and can't stand throwing food to...

I liked the atmosphere and the staff of the restaurant. The food was ok, I had better Thai food before. We had Pad Thai and Red Curry Chicken there.

I am always surprised that this restaurant is near-empty for dinner when we visit. The food is flavorful - I think many comparable dishes beat those at nearby Pon Proem, but are a little pricier, so not our option for take-out. Nicer decor. While the food uses the traditional five star spice scale, they'll spice up to "20 stars" if... More

Ordered a tofu pad Thai from this place with two star spice. Well something more tasteless I've yet to eat. Dry, with no discernable flavour, let alone a two star spice, and no peanuts or lime. Just lots of bitter Mung bean sprouts. Did not finish this meal. A waste of money.

Their location is perfect so they have been my go to place when I want take out. I have been disappointed the last few times. Most recently, I ordered Yellow Curry and Pad Kee Mao w beef. The curry included potatoes that were overcooked and tasted like they were left over from something else and just thrown into the curry.... More

Easy location right off the freeway and great options for lunch. My son and I stopped by and really enjoyed everything we ordered. Tom Ka Gai (coconut chicken lemongrass soup) was excellent. I would definitely recommend Anise!

We have gone to Anise three times for lunch. The lunch combo is a real deal with a cup of soup, spring roll and a choice of excellent entrees with the typical star rating....a three closer to a two. Service and ambience are very good. Recommend!
