I ordered the red curry and an order of spring rolls. It was fantastic food. The food came faster than I expected. I highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal last night....there were so many Thai restaurants to choose from in Palo Alto and I am glad I chose this one. The menu was extensive. The food was tasty. The waiter was kind and warm. It took a little longer to get our food than I tend to expect in a Thai restaurant.

Went here for dinner last week. Food was okay. I had much better Thai food though. Service was very good and food was served quick. I just don't feel it was all that good. The Pumpkin Curry was nice. We also had Veggie Pad Thai, Fried rice w pineapple and Spring Rolls.

We ate here during a fairly typical evening in the bustling downtown area of Palo Alto. Many restaurants from which to choose. I am glad we picked this one. The menu is big enough but not overwhelming. The dining room is nicely laid out, and includes some very beautiful decor items. The service was unobtrusive, but that is what I... More

Friendly folks and ok food, but between very few wait staff and a large takeout business, you get the double whammy of waiting for someone to take your order, and then having to wait for your food to arrive. We go because it is the closest Thai, but finding ourselves seeking alternative.

Having tasted Thai food in Berkeley this place just doesn't even live up to being average. The veg curry was sub par and full of cabbage. One could not distinguish the taste between red curry and Penang curry. We won't come back again.

When I'm in town for business we always have a couple of meals here. The food is really good with a variety of choices. Service can be a bit slow when its busy and the floor is pretty crowded with tables, but the food makes it worth it.

This place was able to produce a really great Thai green beef curry in only a few minutes, and I enjoyed every bite of it. I would happily come here again.

Stopped here with a friend because we were hungry, Palo Alto was crowded, and we didn't want to walk around looking/waiting. This place was pretty quiet compared to the other restaurants around, and we soon figured out why. Even though it wasn't very busy, it took a long time for someone to take our order, and a very long time... More

So much to love about this place: lovely service, cozy ambience, tasty Thai. We like to start with Meang Kam, Beef Salad, Chicken Coconut Soup, delicious curries and the **sticky rice with mango** dessert when in season. They are great at accommodating larger groups.

Thank Katie B
