I have had green and yellow curry, their sampler appetizer plate, a friend tried the noodles and they were amazing! BUT ABOVE ALL.... Try... More

This restaurant has been in business for years. I went to it, probably 20 years ago, and never returned. I decided to give it another try and ordered Pad Thai and Curried Beef. The beef was tough but the curry was tasty. The vegetables on the Pad Thai were frozen, not fresh and it was a strange mixture. I will... More

Small, quaint restaurant. The place was not too crowded. Able to get seat immediately. Good tasteful food. Able to accommodate vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Good service though a little service Will revisit next time we are in town

I have eaten here for dinner and lunch. The lunch menu is wonderful and every special is served with a spring role and soup. I had the buttery garlic chicken and will differently have it again.

I was staying near MD Anderson Cancer Center for 6 months due to stem cell transplant. It was by far my favorite restaurant. The food is varied and well presented. All the veggies were fresh and tasty. I had to have my food cooked a special way due to the medical issues, and the staff were very happy to comply.... More

This was a small place not too far from my hotel. I had my doubts at first because there was almost a full house with only 2 people working. They gracefully managed the crowd. The food was the best Thai we ever had. It was so delicious we returned the next day.

Needed some good honest food with no frills. This was perfect. It was cheap the quality was top notch. For me on my own as an English man I found the portion size was over the top and unnecessary. May be more suited to the American clientele. The place is tiny so it may be worth booking. I would recommend... More

This was my first visit to the great find. It is a very small restaurant seating about 36 people but lucky for many they offer take out and local delivery. The restaurant is very clean and there is cloth table covers and napkins. Be sure to bring a friend to share the food with or be prepared to take some... More
