I've been to this place 4 times. Twice off season, and twice during the 4th of July. The quality of the food varies greatly depending on the timing of your visit. On both of my 4th of July vacation trips my meals were quickly served. And it was obviously pre made. You can't see into the kitchen because it is... More

This is a tiny restaurant ran solely by one person, Nit does it all, she is the waiter, the cook and the manager, extremely impressive. The food is authentic Thai, I had a delicious Pad Thai with no shortage of shrimp. I'd recommend to anyone in the area.

This restaurant is an Insult to every chef and any food. The food isn't prepared as it is advertised on the menu. It was so bad that we pitied the owners and couldn't stop laughing that people actually "cook" like that. We obviously didn't finish cause we almost throw up. Don't go there if you appreciate good food.

Would like a small independent restaurant do well in a town I enjoy. Sadly this is the second time we have had meal poorly prepared. Ordered the "fresh Halibut" which was fried with fried and underdone carrots and potatoes and a vinegar sauce. Also order the Chinese salad with prawns but got a Chinese tofu salad with unpeeled cucumbers. It... More

Wonderful food and friendly service! Nit does 'everything herself' and takes the time to welcome you. Enjoyed the delicious Tom Kha Gai Soup , huge spring rolls in rice paper and tasty chicken curry. Great visit and we will definitely return!

My wife and I were very happy with our meals and wish we had more time to try more of the menu options. The service was very fast and courteous as well. I highly recommend Nit's cafe for a filling and delicious meal.

I ate here 10 plus years ago. Nit's impressed me then and I was equally impressed this time as well! Nit owns this little 8 table cafe on Main Street. She does everything! She cooks delicious, large potions, served with beautiful presentation. Prices are good for what we ordered. Wish I lived closer!

My wife loved her dish. She said it was one of the best she's had, and we eat Thai food often. Mine on the other hand left a lot to be desired. Add to that that it is run by one lady who does it all so she made my wife's and served her then went and made mine so... More

Was a little put off by the name, but this was THE best fresh homemade Thai food. Smooth and spicy. Meat melted in the mouth. Delicious!!
