This little restaurant is a real gem. The food is delicious and it is priced right (inexpensively). The soups and salads are delicious, as are the entrees. It is a comfortable place, not fancy, but functional- just like the food-not fancy, but yummy.

Delicious food and friendly service. All you could want in a home style Thai restaurant. Helpful, attentive and prompt wait staff, no problems with special orders or modifications. Food came out quickly, fresh and hot. Everything cooked to perfection. Facilities are clean and tidy.
