I am writing this review because I can’t believe only about 20 people have reviewed this place. This venue made me fall in love with Thai food. The atmosphere is very artsy, and fits in perfectly with the third ward. Everything is good- but the...More

Ate here twice during my vacation. We got served by the same server, and she was intelligent, informed and nice. The food was great and if you like it spicy, you're in the right spot. And if not, you are too.

Title explains it. I'm such a foodie and picky when it comes to Asian cuisine. this place is located in third ward in Milwaukee. Parking blows, however, the food alone will make you jump over any hurdles just to get it in your belly. Meaning......More

The ambience in this place is fabulous. The spring rolls even better! It was the first stop on our Third Ward seven-seat bike tour. I could have eaten an entire meal rather than just the signature item. Planning on going back next time we're in...More
