This was really good Thai food. The owner/server was friendly and helpful. His small children played a quiet game of hide and seek that left us with a smile. They do a great take out business that can interfear with a quiet meal. Think rustic,...More

Very good and authentic Thai food! Best I've had in a long time. Parking is kinda wierd but worth any inconvenience. Service was great and prices very reasonable with large portions. Don't miss this one.
