Lots of food for your money! The pad tai was fantastic, as were the spring rolls! They have a vast selection of authentic tai food. I wish I lived in the area because I would eat lunch there every day!

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.
