We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. Great main dinners and try the fried bananas. We had the pad thai and egg rolls. Recommend both!

This was a very cool place. The service was great. The food was okay. Just not anything special about it. We tried a couple of appetizers and a few different meals but didn’t fee the need to eat much of any of it.

This Thai restaurant is not authentic Thai. The taste is mediocre. Their spice rack is inadequate with just some crushed red pepper.

Had lunch and dinner separate times here. The taste of food is good and the price is right. It is not a big restaurant so sometimes can be full but we got lucky both times.

We crave the food here and return often. I love the Pad Woonsen and the yellow curry. The lunch plate special includes iced tea, egg roll, soup, and your choice of many dishes, all for only $8.25. The egg rolls are so good, you may...More
