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.

This is great place, friendly people, great food with the correct spice level that we want - they are able to understand what we want. Could have been better if they have some more thai dessert options. However, we love this place.

Having lived in Thailand, the Thai food here is average. Service is fairly good and the restaurant is clean and not fancy.
