We were looking for some Asian cuisine and saw this "hole in the wall" establishment. But do not let that fool you! Like the normal story about "hole in the wall" eateries, this one is superb. The spring rolls were excellent- served hot and tasty with a really nice dipping sauce. My companion and I both had the Drunken Noodle... More

I popped in because I was craving Thai cuisine. I love Drunken Noodles and when I saw they had a special for it, I went for it. They offered an appetizer, dinner of a certain 5 dishes and a beverage for about $15.00 for dinner. I ordered that and got spring rolls, chicken drunken noodles and a Sprite. There were... More

Good food reasonable price. Nice people. I ordered a noodle fish which was good but strangely there was lettuce underneath the food. Done to give less food????

I walked by this place. It looked nice enough. The staff was friendly and seated me immediately. They let me take my time to order. Attentive but not overbearing. Good Tom yum soup and mixed vegetables chicken. Good portions. I was only surprised that no lemon grass was in the soup. I'm glad I ate here. Very pleasant.

Average food, good service. Friendly staff, enough room. Would recommend for a quick meal but not a fancy sit down dinner.

The staff is friendly, the service is excellent, and the food is delicious. The Drunken Noodles were extremely tasty, with just the right amount of spicy kick. You can get your food spiced to your taste from very Mild all the way to Thai hot.

The location was quaint, the staff very pleasant, but the food was mediocre, and I had to constantly shoo a couple of gnats away from my food. Go somewhere else.

Went here for a quick lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is very casual, don't expect anything fancy. The food was some of the best Thai I've had. I don't even like coconut soup and it was outstanding. The pad thai was perfection. My colleague had a chicken and broccoli dish that was very good as well. I wish... More

Small but authentic restaurant. The staff was pleasant although on the shy side. The menu was varied and the price was just.

Thank alguzal
