Went here while on a business trip. Great Thai tea and good Pad See Ew. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for decent Thai food in the Oxnard area.

We were a little surprised at how small and out of the way this restaurant was. However, it surprised us. It was fast service and good Thai food. The red curry was very good, also spicy - bamboo shoots were great. The orange chicken was good although it had a lot of breading. The sticky rice was very yummy. The... More

Well finally found a great Thai restaurant. Authentic dishes, good service, decent pricing and right in my backyard, go figure. Only drawback is this place is small, fills up fast, but worth the wait.

This place has undergone a pretty significant transformation since they first opened. Used to be really a cold, diner feel inside, now it has been warmed up considerably with decoration. The food has always been excellent and the owners and staff always really friendly and professional. Definitely would recommend this plce to anyone.

Pretty good Thai food for Oxnard. Fried rice taste exactly like I remember it from Thailand/Laos. Service is fast and prices are good.

Other reviews made me think this would be a real find, but there was nothing remarkable whatsoever about my meal. Not bad, but not great. So why am I bothering to even write this review? To point out that this place doesn't deserve much praise. My one complaint was that the curry I ordered was listed as hot... it wasn't...... More

I have a thing that I do...I like to pick a food type and over the course of time...usually a year or two...I focus on eating that food type at least once during my travels. I compare each of the restaurants that I've eaten at and get a good idea of what it means to say, "Good ________(fill in the... More

Really good Thai food. Had Pork Pad Thai and Yellow Curry Chicken as take out. Cannot decide which is better because they were both excellent. Advice regarding their location... map we were using incorrectly showed them on the south side of Channel Islands Blvd., but they are located on the north side in the same plaza behind IHOP and Carl's...

Great food. Highly recommend the Salad Rolls!! The Pad Thai with tofu was delicious. Some dishes can be customized, mild, medium, hot, or (gasp) extra hot. One daring individual in our group went with "hot". He says he would not be going for "extra" hot anytime soon. Prices were reasonable. Highly recommended!!

The cooks make this restaurant. Dining room is unpretentious. The bar decor is routine for a Thai place. The food is wonderful! The flavors are authentic and not overwhelming. You can choose various levels of spicyness. They will make you a vegetarian dish if you ask nicely and it will delight you! You can reserve the place for special events... More
