Great taste for the dishes I tried. They have la delicious thai salad: larb with pork. The tom yum with shrimp also good. The khao pad (fried rice) with shrimp is ok. I liked the quality of shrimps they use for the dishes, this is very important.

While not the best Thai food I have had, it was solid and a place I would definitely return to. I had the massaman curry that was good, however on my next trip I would try something different. I visited at lunch, and the service was quick enough (although not rushed) for work day visit.

My wife ordered a Curry with rice on the side as she cannot eat rice. The order came out with a large ball of rice in the middle of the curry. We asked for another order, this time without rice, and when is came out suspiciously quickly, it was obvious that they simply took the rice ball out and gave... More

We used Delivered Dish for room delivery. Excellent service by delivery! We ordered the Crying Tiger - a beef dish served with a spicy, tangy line sauce - and it went beyond our expectations ... Savory to the last bite. We also ordered the Drunken Noodle dish with beef. It was a healthy portion of beef & noodles. Not spicy... More

This is a great little lunch spot. The atmosphere is nice and comfy, I've always had very pleasant and helpful wait staff, and the flavors are really good. Not gonna lie, the chicken is ALWAYS overcooked and the krab/cream cheese won tons are just fine (the dipping sauce is great!), but the Tom Ka Gai is freaking amazing. I love... More

I had missed both breakfast and lunch so I was very hungry when I got here. it's not much to look at on the outside, very plane and the lot is small. The inside was just as plane but looked quite clean. Not many people there at 4, just two other couples besides myself. The waiters quickly brought me out... More

It had been a few years since I had been back. Still just as good. The curry is some of the best in town, the Mummy shrimp is the perfect blend of textures. Service was very good and attentive without going overboard. I like the corner bar area very much. I must remember to go back sooner. These places in... More

My husband and I had lunch here recently. The staff was excellent and we both very much enjoyed our food. Can't complain. I would go back.

This used to be our favorite Thai restaurant in El Paso. We've been three times and the first two experiences were very positive. We went recently after a long absence and we noticed a considerable drop in the quality of the food, which is disappointing considering most entrees are around $15. After reviewing my credit card statement, I noted that... More
