A decent place to get lunch . They had reasonable lunch specials that were very good but not the greatest in terms of rich flavor . Nonetheless I feel this is a safe bet if you want a good lunch that isn't too heavy .

My husband and I had an amazing lunch here! The lunch specials are decently priced with big portions. We had green curry and pad Thai and both were delicious! This will be my new go-to Thai restaurant.

Went for a Thai meal as two couples. For two of us it was our first experience of Thai cuisine. We chose a mix of entrees including a red and a green curry. For each dish we were asked to grade our required spiciness from 1 to 10. Unfortunately we had nothing to benchmark this scale with and so we... More

I live in the neighborhood and have frequented this restaurant to bring house guests, who love the food - especially the salads. Great value for the money. Owners are very nice, service excellent.

Nice selection of Thai dishes, recommend their specialties. Also classics on the menu. Not too spicy, if you like real Thai spicy you need to go for level 9 or better 10. Very friendly staff!
