I keep going back! Attentive Staff. The Thai Tea was tasty. My favorite dishes are the Pad Thai (seafood or Chicken) and Fried Rice (Mixed Seafood or Chicken). The calamari is golden fried to a nice crispiness. The vegetable dumplings are average.

Well above average Thai food. Parang medium to mild curry lunch special with shrimp was delicious. Yum soup that came with the lunch special had nice little chunks of chicken and tiny mushrooms with a hint of fresh cilantro. Would def get that again

Took two 12 year old boys for dinner and they loved it. Nice little local place walking distance from hotels. Boys were impressed with the fruit 'daquiris' and Pad Thai. The green curry was excellent. Prices very reasonable and staff was super friendly.
