Excellent menu before going to see Paula Poundstone at the Pantages. Made reservations to ensure table. Both ordered off the special menu. Roast duck in red curry sauce was outstanding as was the asparagus with chicken. Bottles of wine were reasonably priced.

Accidentally ordered Tom Kha instead of Tom Yum. They gave me a new one in no time and it was delicious! My boyfriend had the beef noodles. He was not impressed.

This Thai restaurant is one block from the Hotel Murano. Seating is basic with simple wooden tables. It is family owned and run. We met the owners and exchanged thoughts and background. The curries are top rate and the chicken is excellent. Prices are moderate...More

We had the spicy green beans and the red curry and found both to be very good. The service was good and the prices comparable to other Thai restaurants. We were not in business attire and were treated very well.

This is one of our daughter's favorite restaurants in Tacoma. We've enjoyed going there when we visited, but now we've moved here, so we can go as often as we like! Everything we've ever had there has been wonderful. I especially love lamb, and theirs...More
