My wife's tom ka gai and my mixed soup were both very good as was the chicken/eggplant dish. Portions are quite generous (we over ordered) so that we ended up taking most of the chicken/eggplant dish home. One thing that continues to puzzle and amaze...More

We went to this place around 6pm after a campus visit. The place was full of college kids. Every dish looks so good. As the other reviewers pointed out, the food worths the wait! We travelled a lot and this is the most tasty Thai...More

The tom kha soup is decent enough for the area. The portions are also reasonable. The only downside: they don't accept credit cards!! Overall, I recommend this place. You won't regret it, especially for the price.
