The food is great and the service and friendliness can't be beat. However, I feel like their prices are getting a bit steep for lunch. It's still always packed for lunch so obviously most people disagree. Still a good experience

We've been here three times. Each time I got there green curry with chicken, and my wife got the pad won sen. Although this is a small storefront with limited capacity, and often a line out the door, the service is pretty quick. It's a favorite student place since it's fairly cheap and casual and does a good takeout business.... More

as mentioned before, there will be a line but it moves quickly and will be worth it. snag a table directly upon entry. save it somehow because the place is small. if need be, keep an eye out while in line for someone about to leave and make your move. tom yum soup incredible. everything just truly fresh and authentic....

beware as they are NOT open on the weekends; they have found their niche though and people are willing to "pack the house" during the week. worth a drive down broad street. for about $25. (two people) you can satisfy that craving for spicy thai (or not spicy) in a very good way. the staff is super friendly. they shall... More

The service was probably the best in town! All smiles, very friendly, and even gave my child a free popsicle! But curry I ordered was overly sweet, and the iced thai coffee wasn't drinkable, and love iced thai coffee! This one was just bad. My husband got pad see-ew, and liked it, so I think i'll try a different dish... More

A rare find tucked away in west SLO Broad Street area on way to airport. Worked nearby for several years and became regular here for a while. Pretty much after second visit you are a regular. The friendly brothers who manage the outer house and the father mother team who cooks in back, all know you after a second visit.... More

This small, strip center located restaurant is within walking distance so I had to try it. I didn't have to come back but I did and do every week to enjoy a different dish from their extensive Thai menu. Most dishes can be made to a different level of spiciness although be warned that their idea of 'medium' might be... More

ALWAYS a pleasurable dining experience at TB! Food is flavorful, ample and HOT! Menu selections are extensive, and the only thing I have eaten there is the Chicken Pad Thai. Prices are marginal, but in a college town, they have to be.

This very casual restaurant has the most sincerely friendly staff! The food is very good, spicy - as you would expect with Thai food. Quick service, good prices.
