My wife swears this is the best Thai food this side of Thailand. Traditional Thai food with great service and flavor. Call ahead for a reservation as they fill up quickly with locals in the know.

Though I think Bangkok Bay could up the "hot" in some of its dishes, this is a friendly and relatively inexpensive Thai restaurant with a generous menu. Wait staff are very kind to children and the food comes out in a reasonable time period. I live in a part of the Midwest where good Thai food is hard to find,... More

This is a really nice small Thai restaurant with great ambiance! It's a little pricy, but the food is great and the portions are very large. It's some of the best Thai food I've had and I can't wait to go back, highly recommended!

Recommended dishes: Roasted duck... More

I went in expecting amazing thai food. I ordered the Pad See Ew with Shrimp, with a Thai Iced Tea. The shrimp was cooked well and so were the veggies, but the noodles were overcooked and kind of a big sticky ball of pasta. The Thai Iced Tea was way sweet, to the point where I couldn't take more than... More

I have always enjoyed high quality meals here with great service! The place is small, so you may have to wait a bit for a table. It's worth it!
