Just an Street mom and pop,but the food comes out spiced or toned down if requested.Also, The server was as polite and attentive as you might find in an upscale joint. Third, byob. 'nuff said. Finally,... More

Food was okay but not amazing. The spring rolls were delicious. The noodles did not taste cooked enough. People there are very friendly. I would not recommend this restaurant though.

Excellent Thai food that's reasonably priced. The menu is full of classic dishes with some specials (definitely try Kathys Magical Chicken). What I like is when you want to increase or decrease the level of spiciness they are expert at it. My wife hates spice and they always make her dishes perfectly mild. I love spice and they never fail... More

Reading the reviews and being from out of town we were happy to find this place. We did take out maybe that was the problem. Requested spicy but nothing was spicy. The veggies were boring and the food was just okay, we won't be back.

This is my family's absolute favorite restaurant for both dine-in and take-out - The food is fresh and delicious and we are always greeted with a smile. It's a great place to treat friends and family for a special meal. The fried rice (all of them) is wonderful and Kathy's Special is quite tasty. Our go-to place when we want... More

My wife and I ordered Tom Kha soup with vegetables which was specially prepared for us since my wife is a vegetarian. It was really good and comparable to the best we've tasted at other restaurants. Our main course was our favorite, Pad Thai with vegetables. Again, it was comparable to our favorite Thai restaurant in Somerville. We shared the... More
