We had spring rolls, wontons and egg rolls for appetizers. Spring rolls with peanut sauce were fantastic. Very fresh and rolled perfectly. The wontons came with a tangy sauce and were perfectly crispy and delicious. The egg rolls were kind of strange-very old-cabbagey tasting. Husband had ginger-garlic shrimp which came with rice and several different stir fried vegetables. The portion... More

This restaurant seems to be catching on slow, but it has great food and is popular for take-out. My wife and I have been here several times, and have never been disappointed. I can't say if the food is "authentic" or not, but the prices are good for this area and they have a great "Happy Hour" from 4:00-9:00. Many... More

Amazing food. Great Portions. Very good service. Will definitely eat here again when we return to Colorado Springs. Try the mango sticky rice for desert.

Decent Thai style food and very reasonably priced. Having spent quite a bit of time in Thailand I can tell you that this is not exactly the stuff you will get in Thailand. What really impressed me with this location was the ability of the waitress to explain the various dishes to my dining companions. Thai food is something a... More

Family operated, good solid meals if not slightly sweet, coconut based curries and Pad Thai. Varied menu includes rice noodle soups which we did not try this time around, reasonably priced venue on the north side of town

Went here with family to enjoy a nice dinner. Great menu and I loved the red curry (Panang) with shrimp.

The staff is friendly and the place is clean, and the food is not bad; it's just not very authentic by any stretch. I would say it's the worst Thai food I've had in Colorado and certainly in Springs.

This lovely restaurant looks like a typical Mom and Pop Asian restaurant. That is where "typical" ends in my description. The owners/staff are super-friendly and remember their customers. They go out of their way to see that your experience is pleasant. The food is awesome. My husband and I have tried several dishes and they have each been delicious and... More

I've eaten a fair amount of US Thai food in my life. This is pretty good stuff. I had the chicken coconut soup and the Panang curry. I'm a fan of Panang curry and try it whenever it's available. This one was pretty good; it was packed full of veggies and shrimp with plenty enough sauce to put rice into.... More
