Beware of using a third party app with this place, they will take your money and give you nothing for it. Ordered food via Eat24, the restaurant was closed. I called the restaurant directly to cancel. I was charged for the food even though the...More

How can you say anything more about a restaurant that has Michelin ratings for many years in a row. The taste is always fresh like they just cut the veggies and ground the spices. I recommend going and trying your favorite dishes and then try...More

A very good Thai menu, at least for American tastes. You can specify the degree of spicy heat if you want. There is some outdoor seating on a strip mall parking lot, which I would not recommend; quite dirty when we were there. The food...More

Good food, nice presentation, strip mall location. Four of us shared plates for a communal lunch. The spring rolls were the biggest hit. There's a limited beverage menu, but that's not all that unusual in smaller restaurants. Overall, if you're looking for Thai, it's worth...More

After reading the reviews we were really looking forward to exceptional Thai food and I️ can’t say this is what we found. My pad Thai was a little mushy and under flavored and my sisters pad see ew was mediocre at best. The food was...More
