Seven of us had dinner tonight based on one of the couple's recommendation. What a hit! The service was excellent and the food was served quickly - especially for a group this large. A variety of dishes were ordered: Pad Thai got rave reviews as did the salmon dish. Two specials were offered - a seafood dish and a lamb... More

This is our default Thai restaurant. They always seem to appreciate our business and have quality food. The place is large but feels homey. My wife loves the chicken fried rice. Simple, tasty, mild, and rich Thai spices, egg, and peas. I love it too. I love their curries, drunken noodles, and spring rolls. Thai decorations are great and calming.... More

I dined here because I was in the area on business at a nearby hotel and I love Thai food. Unfortunately, the food was not very flavorful. I had fresh rolls, Tom Kha Gai, and Mango Curry Chicken. The Tom Kha Gai was probably the worst I've had in my travels. No flavor and mostly onion. The curry was mostly... More

I ordered takeout and had some of the best Pad Thai I've ever had. The staff was also very friendly and when called me back after ordering to check to see if eggs were OK, since I ordered it with tofu. My meal was hot and ready in the less than 10 minutes it took me to get there.

Found the restaurant on Yelp while on a business trip. Shared Thai shrimp rolls and pork pot stickers for appetizers at lunch - both of which were delicious. Had Pad Se Ew with beef for lunch and it was wonderful. Wide egg noodles were cooked just right and had wonderful flavor. I got the lunch size and it was quite... More

Selected here from reviews on Tripadvisor. From the appetizer sampler platter, pictured, we were hooked. Light, delicious in every bite. Explosion of delicate flavors. Continued with coconut soup with shrimp. If you don't like extremely spicy, you might ask them to not top off the soup with the chili oil that was on my mine. I was able to remove... More

Never had a bad meal here. The curry is quick and spicy, the rice is soft and fluffy. The crab rangoons are creamy and crunchy! The take-away service is amazingly quick and cheap. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a really good, fairly inexpensive dinner.

This was a delicious blend of veggies and the house peanut sauce is the best. Veggies were cooked to perfection and I added chicken. Perfect!

My wife and I ate here a couple months ago and had a great lunch. There were quite literally no other customers in the place when we were there at around 2 p.m. Maybe that contributed to the great service, as there was no one else to serve! We ordered the Thai fresh spring rolls, drunken noodles, basil stir fry,... More
