The restaurant itself is spacious and relaxing, nicely decorated. The waitress I encountered was very friendly and helpful. The food was the only disappointment--I felt like the sauces in our meals were on the watery side and the food was definitely more greasy than your average Thai food. The food didn't seem to sit well with my stomach, either.

Nothing special, but good enough. Varied menu. Fairly busy for a slow period. I'd go back, but maybe not first choice

Spring rolls advertised as shrimp and pork came with no pork. Crispy tofu not crispy golden as listed. Chicken satay tasted funny

Love this place! Honestly, there isn't much to choose from in this town, so for a place like this to pop up, yes and yes! The thai tea is the best tea I've ever had. Moved away and still wish I could get some! Great prices! I definitely recommend going!

Joe came personally to our table when we explained to the waitress our special dietary needs. Together we came up with a delicious curry chicken in a coconut crime base. The salad wraps even trump my other favorite Thai place. They hand rolled and packed. He also serves his native Vietnamese food which I will try next. I found him... More

Food and staff/service were great. There is parking available, it's easy to find, and take out is quick.

3 of us ate dinner for $50 with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day. We had chicken satay appetizer, large Pho soup, Garlic noodles with beef, and Spicy garlic sauce with beef. 2 beers, 2 sodas, and hot tea. All the food was yummy! The tea was kind of blah. We will definitely eat here again. The waitstaff... More

Great food, good selection, and good atmosphere. I especially liked the Thai Tea and Yellow Curry. It is a small, quiet restaurant and it is very clean and tidy. The staff are very polite and friendly.
