I read the reviews but still wasn't too sure about this place. The décor is very authentic and the food is actually quite delicious. I ordered the pad thai and my wife ordered the yellow curry. Both were very good and we would definitely return.

Unexpectedly great Thai food in this shabby town. Very fast friendly service. The spicy eggplant and red curry tofu were fantastic. Also liked the Pad Thai.

Best Thai food we have had. It really deserves a better rating than #14 on Tripadvisor. Very good curry and excellent sticky rice!

Centrally located near Pearson, parking in the back. Friendly staff, okay Thai food, good selection... predictable rather than exciting. Fair prices.

The food isn't prepared or cooked ahead of time, but when ordered. It may take a few minutes longer, but the wait is worth it. When food is cooked fresh, it tends to taste better and the vegetables have a "bone" in them. The cooks and owner are from Thailand not anywhere else. While waiting, you can view the pictures...

I love Thai food and this place did not disappoint. I compare it to my favorite places back home. I will eat here a couple times in a 3 day visit to the mineral spas. Great people and atmosphere. Give it a shot you'll be happy you did.
