Went here once, the food was a 4 start but the restaurant itself was gross. Smells and needs updating.

The daily lunch special is one of the best bargains in Lake County. You can select from 4 appetizers, 4 soups, and 19 entrees -- choose from rice; fried rice, noodles, or curry items. You can specify the level of spiciness you prefer. Service is often slow -- sometimes very much so -- because there is only one hostess/server working... More

As was the Combo Fried rice. Service is a bit slow, mostly because there is a lot of carry-out. BUT WELL WORTH THE WAIT. Compares favorably to the Thai food in Seattle, which I have always considered the best in the USA!

Nice intimate restaurant with high quality food. Staff sometimes overwhelmed, but are happy to assist when asked. Best Thai food in the area.

The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is due to their service. The staff never smiles and they never refilled our waters throughout service. Our food came out at different times as well, which was a little frustrating...that being said, the food was delicious. It was actually the best oriental food I've had in this area so far.... More

A friend took me to this restaurant and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The food is very tasty and the portions are just right. I have since brought multiple friends to visit and will continue... You must visit...

My family and I get takeout from this place literally every week. The food is so good and authentic! The pad Thai, egg rolls, basil chicken, shrimp tempura, fried rice and basically everything on the menu is so tasty. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for the best Thai food in Lake County!

Thank Logan H
