The quality of food at this restaurant is very good. The staff is very attentive and food was served quickly. The focus here seems more on quality of ingredients and less on presentation than some other restaurants of this type. Prices are fair and portions...More

I can't tell you enough about this place. The food quality and flavor were superior. It tastes like local "IN" Thailand food. We ordered so many things. Soups, appetizers, entrees. Everything was high flavor, fresh and delish. Find your favorite and be prepared. I imagine...More

There are plenty of Thai restaurants in the Bay Area, but if you are in Berkeley/Albany, this is the place to go. The servings are generous, beautiful presentation, and delicious and fresh dishes. Try the dish of the day. You will not be disappointed.

Having lived in Bangkok and spent quite a bit of time in Thailand I consider myself to be somewhat of an "authority" on authentic Thai cuisine. While some dishes vary in terms of genuine Thai authenticity, (not too Americanized) these people deliver the goods at...More

I went with 5 other folks. They had the Lamb, Chicken Satay, Prawn salad, and as always, I had the Pad Thai. The Pad Thai was about 3 1/3 stars, not the best I've had, but somewhere between fair and good. The Chicken Satay came...More
