We had dinner here, it was close to our hotel. It wasn't bad. The food cost was a little more than I expected, but all in all not a bad experience.

We used to go here fairly regularly for lunch. The Manola curry is very good. I usually get a green curry with tofu. Unfortunately, just when I thought the service was at the bottom, it got worse. They generally have two servers. One is hustling like crazy and the other does nothing. Slow service, slow checkout, slow slow slow. We... More

I wanted to let people know this is not the place to be. The moment my friend and I sat down the server had a bad attitude. She looked at both of us and saw that the table was was dirty. Instead of politely saying let me clean this for you real quick , she comes in with her dirty... More

Since I moved to San Antonio this was my favorite place, but a lot has changed since then. No more sushi on the menu which is a downer :( flavor it's kind of different, every time I order extra meatballs on my pho soup its like the regular amount that come with it and the other day I came 15...

I swing by this small, quiet, restaurant when I get the opportunity because every soup or main dish I've tried there is well done, prepared quickly, and priced right. So here's what I did at first- I got the pad Thai, because a lot of places make pad Thai and I figured I would have some basis for comparison...it was... More

This restaurant is fabulous! We stumbled across it for an early meal when our normal Thai joint had not yet opened for the evening. I am SO impressed. This restaurant received a "blue plate" from local TV station and was indeed very clean. The food was impeccably prepared with the freshest of ingredients. The flavor was spot on and everyone...

We came to this place because our GPS led us there when we asked for Thai food. Upon arrival...we almost left, judging the book by its cover. I used the smart phone to look up reviews...most were good, with a few bad. I noticed one person left a two star review because they didn't have any healthy food, LOL. It's... More

We had a great evening at Manola's. We had planned to grab pizza next door but opted for the better atmosphere at Manola's. What a great decision! We loved the spring rolls, garlic edamame, green chicken curry, some wonderful marinated pork dish with great sauce, vegetables and jasmine rice. You choose the level of heat. They serve wine and beer... More

I usually come here for weekday lunch because they are fast and the service is acceptable. They aren't warm and inviting, but I didn't come here to be coddled. The food is $7-8 for lunch and fairly healthy. Noodles, meat, tofu and veggies. Maybe a lot of carbs, but certainly not dripping in oil. Taste is comparable to other Thai/Vietnamese/... More

We go here at least once a month. Service is good- the teenagers welcome us and remember our special requests. At first we had problems with too much spice once or twice for a #1 level, but that is ok now. Always friendly and open to substitutions (I prefer pad thai sauce on my salad). Bubble teas are great. Good... More
