Stumbled on this restaurant when leaving Joshua Tree National Park and the food was amazing. Best Thai food we have had in America. Decent price, many main courses only $10 and loads of vegetarian options

I'm not sure how many people are normally working here, but on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend - a big, big day at Joshua Tree National Park - they tried to handle the whole room with 2 people. Service was spotty to invisible. Waited 10 minutes before anyone stopped by our table of four. Ordered drinks, with a wine glass for the beer, plus water. Drinks arrived, no wine glass, no water. Waited some more, and then some more. Waitress stopped by to take our order, which we happily gave as who knew when we would see her again. The food arrived in pieces. A soup was delivered - but it wasn't the one that was ordered. Wait some more. Two entrees were delivered and the soup was retrieved after she peered and peered and tried to make the cellophane noodles appear. Wrong soup, so it went away. We now have two out of four with some food. Fourth entree appeared, but still no soup. Wait and wait. Soup arrives. Still no wine glass or water. We gave up on the water, but did request the wine glass again, which did arrive. This approach to "service" just doesn't work. The people were very nice, the food was average to ok - certainly nothing special, and the pad thai was not hot when it arrived. Had been sitting somewhere. So, would love to support them, but can not recommend the place.

Super delicious red curry and tofu pad Thai. When we arrived, there were only two other parties. By the time our food came, the place was full and people were leaving because of the wait (bummer). I suggest coming early and bring your patience. This is a family restaurant, and when it gets busy every helps out (mom and dad from the kitchen). So, don't come here in a rush from JTNP. Instead, sit with friends and enjoy the flavorful food.

Had decided on Enchadas opposite,only to find it had ceased to operate . Glad we did. Ok layout,nothing special,but food was really good,and the Thai girl serving,was the best. Lovely,friendly and keen to please. If they improved the decor,would get top marks

Good Thai food for an average price for this type restaurant. $10-$15 a plate. Clean inside and friendly fast service.
