Stopped for dinner while in Pasadena on business. The food is fresh, the atmosphere is quiet and comfortable and waitperson was pleasant and attentive. I like my Thai hot, and it was prepared at the exact level of spiciness I requested.

I am a great fan of Thai cuisine and this restaurant delivers on my expectations. The main course (Orange chicken) was just a perfect experience for my sense of smell and taste. Next time i'm in Pasadena, i'll be having dinner here again.

They don't disappoint. Good value, good fresh food, straight forward service. It is a bit no frills, but the prices are fair and the quality of the food is solid. I love the curries and the stir frys!
