Consistently delicious, generous, fresh, well-spiced food. The house salad with ginger dressing has a winning combination of apples and onions, just one of the interesting flavor pairings from this family-owned, sweetly intimate, always delicious restaurant. The curries are bountiful and flavorful. Try it you'll like...More

This is the best Thai restaurant. I had the beef salad, and it tastes amazing with the sour fish sauce. The chicken satay is also delicious. Recommended for everyone.

Decided to give this Thai place a try even it's the furthest from our hotel. It's really really good! I especially loved their chicken satay (the peanut sauce is so delicious!) and green curry.

One of our "go to" restaurants. Dinner here is always excellent. Third time last night. Tom yum soup and chicken and ginger/mushroom. Restaurant is small, but delightful. Parking on the street is very doable. Highly recommend.

Pad Thai is not spicy really. Spice can be adjusted and there are different types of curries.
