Really enjoyed our meal here. The cashew chicken and pai thai entrees were excellent. The service and the modern interior were outstanding. Prices were reasonable, and the portions were large. Will definitely return!

This is by far the best Thai food restaurant in Phoenix among the ones I have been to. And I admit, I have not been to all. Service is a little slow but food is great. The restaurant is clean, well decorated and has plenty of parking space. We were a group of 5, and went for lunch on a... More

Ordered the spicy seafood soup and classic curry. I have been there twice, for take out only it's a cute little place inside and the food was served hot and pretty quickly. I will be back and recommend it if your in the area. Oh and they spice the food at the exact level of heat that you want.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and the food is aboslutely womderful! To the person who wrote the review about flies and bad service? I have eaten here at least a dozen times and have never encountered flies or bad service. Their pad thai is the best I have ever had.

Great food for dine-in or take-away. Been eating here for years when I travel to Phoenix. Never ever had a bad dish. The food is tasty, authentic Thai and is served quickly. There is a consistent line of customers coming in for take-out, which is a great indicator of the quality and taste. The prices are great too.

This new location in Tempe is a real BOON for nearby residents and visitors, that want some authentic Thai food for satiating their hunger. I went into this facility and was greeted very promptly, and warmly. Our orders were taken quite soon after, and didn't take long at all to be served up. The portion sizes were very generous, the...

We like coming here for lunch. They have a great lunch menu and they get us in and out fast. I always order the curry chicken. Yum!
