We ordered a variety of items so friends unfamiliar with Thai food could experiment. The fresh spring roll was enjoyed by all. Green papaya salad also was pretty authentic but powdered dried would be preferable to whole dried ones. Eggplant basil was good but we...More

Not sure what it was exactly but this was definitely not one of our favorite places. No heat to the food at all, not even spicy. Had an appetizer, pad thai , chow mien and thai ice tea. Nothing memorial to bring us back

The building and atmosphere ain't much but the food is good and the price is right. We eat here at least one or two nights every time we come to Newport.

Staff very nice. Food is okay. Great place to enjoy a meal with a group of people. Don't expect anything spectacular in the menu, but the variety is nice. Have been several times. I believe it is family owned.

As a frequent visitor to Thailand I really appreciate good Thai. Ordered the 'Tasty Mango' and the flavor from the Tom Yum soup to the entree was excellent. Friendly attentive service and a tab for two of only $20 - can't go wrong here.

The outside of this restaurant is definitely a little worrisome, a small standalone, bright yellow hut. But since our favorite thai place is in a strip mall back home we tried it, looks can be deceiving. The food was amazing. The service was quite good...More

The food is average to good -- nothing wrong, but nothing special. The atmosphere is clean and neat, though rather run-of-the-mill. All in all, a decent meal at a decent price, but nothing special.
