I love take out from here. The spring rolls are light and healthy. Love the green curry too!! I don't like to eat inside simply because the staff is not real friendly. For take out, call ahead because often the wait is 30 to 40...More

We go every month to Karuna's. Get to know the counter lady, if not the cook (her aunt or mother). Food is terrific, but especially the buffet; go Wed or Fri for the coconut curry soup.

I ordered the Pad Thai, it was very flavorful. The food took a decent amount of time so don't come if you're in a rush. The restaurant is small, but cozy and authentic.

My husband and I tried this restaurant tonight for the first time. It got good reviews and we weren't put off my the tacky decor, because in our experience that can mean the food will be really good. We ordered an appetizer, beef on a...More

As you will read in other reviews, your best bet is to order take-out, as there is only a single server and cook for the very tiny restaurant. But even take-out requires more than an hour wait. We ordered at 7:20 Sunday evening, arrived at...More
