I have eaten here for business lunches or dinners, meeting friends, and even eating alone, but over the last few years, this has become my families #1 place for takeout. We have two vegetarians, who are easily accommodated by substituting tofu for meat proteins. They...More

Good place to eat. Quiet inside, take out was quick. Vegetables tasted fresh and rice was not overcooked.

Always seems busy at lunch time but I don't know about in the evening. Still the food comes quickly. I recommend the pad Thai but the green curry and other dishes are good as well.

Came in here for a quick business lunch: fairly bland decoration, prompt service, food is good but not outstanding - it's all cooked and served very quickly - so a good pit-stop but maybe not the best cuisine and delicate seasoning and spices you might...More

I have been going here for several decades. It is consistently good. Quiet atmosphere and good service.

Was it the lack of spices in my pad thai? Was it the noodles that seemed like they were (over)cooked hours before? Was it the somewhat inattentive service? It was all of them. Meh.

I've been here before. I thought my Ka prow kai, recommended by the waitress (looking for something other than my go-tos) was good. That's until I found a long hair in my dish. Then another long hair in my dish. My waitress was nice but...More

This restaurant is very good. We went there on a Sunday night and they don't serve alcohol, so they told us we could go next door and get a bottle of wine. Coming from Michigan we had never heard of that, but it was fun....More

Having living in Asia for many years, I was really disappointed with this restaurant. I ordered takeout including whole fried fish, chicken pineapple, and tofu and veggies. Shockingly, all three had the same flavor, sauce, and veggie ingredients. The all tasted a little bit sweet...More

I believe they do and I am a wine drinker, although recently I've been ordering a specialty they make beautifully: Thai iced tea. Thai tea is reddish (not brownish) and so this iced tea, to which they add milk or cream and... More
