We have been here quite a few times when we are craving Thai or have a coupon. The food is completely average and we always leave feeling not quite great, like they are using too much oil in the cooking. Price, decor, food, service - all nondescript.

This is a small local chain, but the food is good and the atmosphere is always bustling. It's decorated with bright colors and the staff is friendly and polite -- but that is how Thais are!

We had a groupon coupon to try this place. For our first visit on a Sunday in mid Nov, it was a pleasant one. We arrived at 6:15PM and there were 4 tables occupied. We were greeted right away and the waiter took our drink order. The menu is extensive with a variety of choices including a vegetarian section. One... More

reliable local thai.....for us, perfect for ordering for delivery and watching a movie.....prices are ok, family of four can eat for 50 bucks.....some highlights are the tom ka gai soup (coconut, chicken...), the pad thai with shrimp, and the curry chicken. takes up to an hour sometimes, but usually 45 minutes to deliver. a solid B plus, we enjoy this...

I had an expired groupon for this restaurant and decided to give it a try. It was accepted without question, which was nice. The service was great - We shared the duck roll special appetizer, which was very nicely plated and quite tasty. I had the Hoi Obb (Crabmeat dumplings) - very good and Kanom Jeeb (mussels) for my dinner.... More

this place is situated in an office building. there is limited parking in front, but apparently lots of parking in the back (they have a small sign up by the door that you don't really see until you enter the place). it has an unusual "undersea" decor, with frosted glass and metal cut to resemble waves, a large undersea mural...

Had a nice lunch with colleagues. A lunch special has soup or spring rolls plus a main course - I had "Drunken Noodles" which were very spicy and delicious. Good service, nice and clean - great for lunch.

The service is very friendly here, the food is good and reasonably priced. It can be hard to find seats, as it's very popular.

We went there at Dinner Time. Party of 4 on 5/20/14 @ 8 pm.. The waitress was in a real hurry. She wanted us to be done with Drinks, Appetizers and Dinner quickly. The Bottled premium beer was semi-cold. The appetizers arrived they were cold. Can you believe it the Soup was cold! The Dinner was unappealing, Cold again. Have... More

This restaurant has delicious food at a reasonable price. The ingredients are fresh and they have seasonal specials. The chefs recommendation sheet entrees are always fabulous. They will also tone down the "heat" which my wife appreciates.
