I recommend the chicken satay, the Mongolian beef, the Pad Thai, the tofu or chicken Phad King. This gem of a family owned restaurant is in a strip mall and has a nice atmosphere and great food.

The restaurant is my favorite Thai restaurant in Ann Arbor. They have a large selection of dishes. The restaurant typically closes for two or three weeks in July so make sure they are open before going there in the summer.

Five of us shared several dishes. The food was delicious and not too spicy. If you like your food super "hot", you should ask. Easy parking in a strip center. Basic decor. For Thai food it's a bit pricey. My nieces who live in this town say it's the best Thai available.

In a city packed with good restaurants, this place stands out for the poor quality of their food. I have tried it twice, giving them the benefit of the doubt on the first underwhelming visit. We tried the typical Thai gold standard dishes - masaman curry, pad thai, and spring rolls. If your taste buds are set for Thai food,... More

Fantastic food! It never disappoints on quality or quantity. Huge menu leaves everyone at the table satisfied. The staff is friendly and attentive. They make you feel at home in their cozy atmosphere.

We get their take out almost every Friday, but dining there can be a challenge. You never know where they'll be open or not. Call first before going there.

This is a tried & true favorite, with every member of the family. It is a family run restaurant with traditional recipes that are executed with amazing consistency.

OK, so no alcohol. That happened sometime last year and I've noticed that it's now easier to get a table on a Friday night. But the food is quite good, much better than the food at Zingerman's Road House at the front of the lot in the strip mall where both are located. Have tea with your dinner and enjoy... More

Overall, this is a great place. In my view, there are two major highlights: 1. Authentic food, all freshly cooked, large menu 2. This is the quietest and the most peaceful restaurant I have been to. Customers appreciate this, and they seem to voluntarily lower their voices and do not shout over each other. I have not seen this in... More
