Extremely disappointed. My friends wanted to come to this Thai place for food. While the owner is Thai, the food aren't Thai at all. I felt the food was catered to American more than anything. I traveled to Thailand on a number of times and...More

This restaurant is simple and unassuming in atmosphere. It has authentic Thai decor. The combination plates offer a good value for lunch, but I prefer ordering off the menu nonetheless. The food is straightforward and perfectly good, and the prices are certainly fair. Service is...More

Great place for Thai cuisine! Authentic flavors, good service and reasonable prices. Not bad for families either. The red curry was fantastic ! Chicken satay was awesome as well. Other dishes on our table got cleaned up without complaint

I thought the food here was spectacular. The mango curry was so flavorful as was my pineapple fried rice. Overall I was totally impressed and will definitely come here again!

Always on the search for great pad Thai and Andaman curry. Here is a tasty entry in that search. Wonderfully robust curry with solid pad Thai. I also love you can get brown rice. Great eats

Was really expecting something terrific based on the reviews, and it was underwhelming. The tom yum koong soup was good, but not great. The pad thai was "meh." The service was...good enough? Nothing will be bad here, but nothing was notably good either. Not a...More

Dok Bua delivers lunches to my office complex via the Peach Labs service. The Chicken Pad Thai is outstanding. Delicately flavored, with a nice hot sauce on the side and a very generous portion. One of my favorites
