This is an easy going , reliably good Thai restaurant. The curry dishes are super and all are beautifully presented. The pork and chicken dishes a little better than beef. This time had green curry with chicken. Also tasted the pork pad Thai- also very good. Great Thai ice tea.
Extensive menu and delicious. Always too full up to try dessert. And you are just a short distance from the beautiful beach at Palmetto Dunes.

Took the family. Everything was delicious. They had a wonderful kids menu. Quiet atmosphere. They took the time to not only have delicious, authentic Thai food but also a beautiful presentation.

If you are after generic Thai food, this is the place for you. Their food has been Americanized. You will recognize the dish names but the flavor is lacking. Take out was ready quickly and was still hot when we arrived home ten minutes later. Expensive for the quantity and flavor.

On vacation in Hilton Head Island, we saw this restaurant tucked in a nice shopping complex visible from the Wm Hilton Pkwy. The restaurant was clean, fresh looking with very attentive staff. They were quick to bring anything we needed or ordered.

It was lunch and the lunch menu offered a pared down version of a very large menu with a wide array of very delicious looking entrees. I chose the Ginger stir fried beef which came with jasmine rice and a very heavy portion of fresh ginger that had been shredded in short lengths versus sliced, etc. The ginger was very fresh with a small bite. I couldn't get enough of the ginger. The other vegetables were cooked perfect and the beef was sliced thin and not over-cooked, making it delicious. My lunchmate had Garlic stir fried tofu and the tofu was cooked just right, not fried too much and the vegetables perfect again. We will go back. We recommend.

Can't believe we have missed this treat all these years. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly, courteous and competent. On arrival, they were standing together awaiting the guests and had nice, clean black outfits. Our server was Nica and she was great. The food is outstanding. I had a Thai seafood dish that had scallops, shrimp, mussels and fish with vegetables served in a split coconut with really good sticky rice. My wife had the Lobster Pad Thai and was extremely pleased.
