We have been going here 10 years and sad to say that things have changed. They must have new management the portions are smaller and the quality has gone down. This use to be our favorite thai place but can no longer recamend it.

I don't know what accounts for the high reviews here. I thought it was just average college town food. The spicy chicken coconut milk soup was simply salty and underflavored otherwise. The very spicy stir fried beef with lettuce wraps came with hard cabbage wraps...More

This was our second visit, definitely worth it! Sauces are light, portions are huge, seafood & meats are delicious. You will definitely have food to go. Very accommodating with food allergies. My picky daughter thinks this is the best pad Thai ever!

Sister restaurant to Ruan Thai. More Americanized and more oriented to college students, still very good.

While visiting our grandson, a student at U of A, we chose the namesake of our favorite Thai restaurant in Huntsville. This was our first visit and there were very few customers there for lunch. The eating area was clean and bright. Our server, Kristina,...More

This is the sister restaurant to Ruan Thai. If we don't finish our business in time for lunch at Ruan Thai, we eat here. More Americanized and caters more to college students than Ruan Thai but still very very good.
