Without a doubt this restaurant serves the best, freshest, and tastiest Thai found I've had in MA! Went last night before a show at The Zeiterion. We started with the lettuce wraps and fresh rolls followed by spicy (not overly sweet) Pad Thai and Crispy Chicken Fried Rice. All were seasoned & cooked perfectly, light and fresh, and the crispy...

We walked in here for a simple lunch after poking around downtown for a few minutes after getting off I-195. I had green curry with pork, very spicy, and my wife and red curry, mild, with chicken. Extremely flavorful and delicious. The red curry was especially tasty. I eat Thai often and the curries were first-rate. A little spare and... More

Always have the red curry chicken and I am never disappointed!! You can have it mild, medium or hot! The hot is very hot but the medium seems just right to me :) The crab rangoons are light and crispy - another must have with dinner!

The food is fresh, authentic, reasonably priced, and so tasty. In fact, sometimes the vegetables come from the owners' garden. This is a family-run restaurant in a humble setting in downtown New Bedford. We eat here as often as possible both take out and at the restaurant. Try any stir fry and mango sticky rice.

I tried a few dishes. The curry was the real stand out. Delicious sauce and sticky rice. You can ask for more or less heat. Great for to go items as well.

I had been coming here for years. Last visit was poor at best. Called for takeout a few months ago. Asked about GF menu options and was told that many of the items I'd purchased for years were NOT GF. Asked it they'd changed the recipes for those items. Guy on the phone seemed ticked at me that I'd even... More

Went to Celebrate last night and was very pleased. Because we had read that this was a BYOB Restaurant, we brought our own but they ARE NOT BYOB. NO Problem, they had some good choices. The food was awesome and the place was almost full. It is not a place where you go, get your food and your out. Its... More

I decided on Pad Thai, a good measure for any Thai restaurant. I lived in Thailand, so I dare say I know a little about how this dish is supposed to be, acknowledging that it varies from region to region. The owner said she's from Bangkok. But I've never had broccoli in my Pad Thai in Thailand, and certainly no... More

If it were more consistent, I'd have bumped it up a notch. The spice and textures are there. Presentation is OK. Not the cleanest place I've dines in. First place I've seen a Lime Ricky since I was a kid! But, it was kind of over priced for the size beverage served. I'll go back.

We've had Thai food before but seldom ventured beyond Pad Thai. Tonight we took the leap and were delighted. We began with Thai tea and ginger tea, chose chicken sa-te and Shrimp in Sleeping Bag appetizers, and Crispy Chicken Fried Rice. We loved it all! The food was a wonderful blend of aromatic flavors and textures. I ordered the curry... More
