A distinctive environment and menu with very friendly and courteous staff. Prompt service and the atmosphere is suitable for fine dining if one chooses. They offer the usual range of Thai specialties all skillfully prepared by a great kitchen staff.

Although in a strip mall, inside the restaurant is attractively decorated the staff friendly and the menu is extensive. We have been a few times and all the dishes have been delicious! Prices are very reasonable and the portions very generous

Try the Thai Iced Tea, crispy spring rolls, Tom Yum soup and red curry. These are Thai food staples and it was authentic. I have probably eaten in >100 Thai restaurants including in Bangkok so I mean it. The fried banana desert is truly a treat. The strawberry which comes shaped like a rose tells you that they care. The ice cream to me tasted as if it had ripe jack fruit but it really was coconut. The service is very friendly.

I'm a newbie to Thai food, but we had a group of 6 decided this was the right place for a lunch. The food was great, everyone really liked the seafood rangoon appetizers and their entrees.

I ate only once at this restaurant with a colleague for a business dinner on a Tuesday night.

Here's what I liked:
Friendly welcome, a choice of table (although it was early on a Tuesday night), the menu was varied and the food came quickly. It was delicious and as a lover of Thai food I was impressed. The price was good too.

I usually write balanced reviews but I can honestly say there wasn't anything I didn't like about this restaurant. It wasn't the best I have ever visited but I had a great meal and would visit again.
