We came to see what this pace had to offer so we tried I would say 90% of there appetizers, the flavor a were good the portions were way to small for the money pot stickers, egg rolls and crab avocado Rangoon's were very good like I said they are not sized like a normal restaurant size for this type of food. Our server name was Mia she was amazing no matter how busy she was we never felt ignored and she always asked how we were doing if she seen an empty glass etc. I would recommend this place for sure food is good but again small portions for the money mainly on the appetizer side of things hopefully this will change.. And sushi rolls much smaller then any other sushi place I have been and cost same amount again still good food and service was outstanding thanks to Mia.

Went to the restaurant last night as it was a cold night and only 5 minutes walk from my hotel

Got a vey warm welcome and a tasty and spicy meal. The Tom yam soup was fantastic. The rice was a disappointment cold and glutinous and should be much better.

Overall a great place for a casual dinner. Spice levels are good if you ask for hot

Downtown Des Moines, best Thai food we've found in the Midwest. Most restaurants serve you "American spicy" but this one goes all out. Had the Volcanic scallops, the name does not disappoint! Ambiance leaves a bit to be desired, but that is to be expected for any Thai restaurant. Think wine may not be a staple here, first glass of Pinot noir was fine, second was served cold. But regardless, the food made up for any inadequacies elsewhere. Will be back!

Went here with a friend for lunch and had a great experience. We both really like our order and the waitress was great. I'll definitely be back in the future.

The food was very good. We had a bigger group when we dined. The staff seemed very accommodating to us (we did call ahead). Everyone was friendly except the waitress; she was quite crabby and pushy with everyone.
