Having been to Thailand, my husband and I can say the food is authentic and tasty. Just beware that they have a heavy hand with the spices, so if you aren't a fan, be sure to order the lowest number possible. We've tried several dishes and they have all been tasty!

My family got to rachawadee 10 min before opening. We luckily got the last of those 9 seats and wow was it entertaining. My sons learned about hard work, quality and awesome customer service within the 45 min we were there. You have to experience this place if you have time. No time? Order out. Like others say-- you better... More

Excellent stop with a small counter set up. Great spicy Thai dishes. Interactive owner, fresh hot peppers. Smells great. Fun scene.

Nine seats at a counter and take out is all that's is going on here. Behind the counter a feisty, very talented Thai chef is wokking up dish after dish with several other Thai ladies rolling spring and summer rolls and pouring out noodles faster than you can say "yum!" If you don't have your take-out order in by 5:20,... More

the food is wonderful but it is a very rushed eating situation ---not a place you can go and relax with a friend.Gets very crowded at lunchtime. Very quaint and fun though if you don't mind feeling rushed!!

Wife and I stopped by for our first visit based on Tripadvisor #1 rating for Mt. Vernon. It was last Tuesday just before 12 noon. There were 4 stools available so we took 2 of them. Wife ordered massamam curry and I ordered the tom yum soup. The curry was excellent and the tom yum ok. We had spice at... More

Simply put.... fresh, crisp and flavorful. This funky small diner-style Thai house puts out mighty fine food. A no miss place when you are in Mount Vernon.

This small restaurant provides better Thai cuisine than we got in Thailand. Go figure. The chef is a tiny Thai woman who prepares delicious food in front of you. The seasoning is 1-5 in hotness, and do go easy on yourself. Ratchet down your belief that you can stand a "5" because that's really really hot. The food is all... More

This is a tiny restaurant that cranks out great food. We try to either order take-out or go off hours to get a seat. The food is excellent and consistent. You’ll want to order 1 notch down from your normal “heat” because they use hotter peppers. We’ve never been disappointed. Service is friendly and they get you in the door... More

The food is great. Every dish I have ordered has been really good. The restaurant is very small so I get my food to go. The prices are good, restaurant is clean and the staff are friendly. They cook the food right in front of you which I love. We eat here at least once a month or more.

Thank thebryners
