Thai food offers a lot of variety, and this Thai restaurant offers more options than many Thai places do (including the other option in Ames). From rice to noodles, soup to special dishes, this place offers it all - and at a price everyone can afford. Vegetarians will love the WIDE selection of options, since nearly everything can be made... More

This was an excellent Thai cuisine, my meal and my friends were excellent. The service was good, but it was not exceptional. We were very happy with the meals.

It is definitely the best Thai restaurant in Ames as it serves authentic Thai food. Don't forget to visit this place if you're around and craving Thai food. Green Curry is their best dish. Chicken fried rice is definitely something to die for.

When travelling to Ames on business we were looking for somewhere a little more cosmopolitan to eat. The food served was well cooked (with the usual enormous US portions) and the service was good. I had the mild chicken curry which was nice and vegetable spring rolls to start and could not complain.

If this restaurant only sells fried rice, I would give 5 stars. I always get regular chicken fried rice and ka-praw fried rice. I think they specialize in fried rice (red curry fried rice, yellow fried rice and etc). Other menu recommended are pad-see-ew, pad Thai, mango sticky rice, kao man gai, pine apple fried rice, pork leg. The restaurant... More

I have been a long time fan of this place. The food is simple and delicious. If you need fancy treatment, don't go. This is more like delicious food at a friends house.

This is a cash only place but the entrees are 8bucks average. Food was hot, fresh, and very good! Friendly staff. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.
