The owner proudly mentioned his nearly 35 years in business, the quality of the pad thai and touted the fact that all meals were cooked to order. The food was delicious (although not the best pad thai I've ever had) and served quickly and with a smile. All of us enjoyed our lunch and I plan to return the next... More

For wonderful flavors and freshness we return to Thai Gem regularly. Favorite dishes include Matsuman Curry, beef with Thai basil, and Witt's eggplant. Prices are very reasonable.

Small place in strip area. Standard Thai menu. I had the pad thai which had excellent fresh noodles and vegetables. I had the beef with vegetables which was spicy and had fresh veggies. Large quantity.

My wife and I ate here about a month ago on a Thursday. The food was pretty good despite the fact that he gives you so little. I rate the restaurant on the quality as well as quantity of food. The food was served hot and had good flavor. I think the owner, our server, must of had a off... More

When I arrived at the strip mall, I was a bit concerned, Inside my picky friend was at the table having a grand time with the owner, tasting appetizers, talking of... More

Small "hole in the wall" in a strip-mall back S/E corner of Willow and Shaw. Have eaten there many times and have taken out. Owner takes orders. Will make as you request. You can change spice mild to hot or add vegetables. I love the Pad Kee-Mow which I add brocccoli. The main thing I like about this place the... More

I've been to a lot of Thai food places in Fresno and have witnessed a phenomenon of only what I can explain as serve-staff being on "Thai time". "Thai time" means that it takes decades to even be acknowledged let alone seated, then, dare I say eons for your order to actually come up. I can name 3 establishments off... More

This is a very small restaurant in a strip mall. The exterior is a little unprepossessing and the interior is ok but definitely not fancy. We ordered the coconut soup, pad thai and massamun curry. The soup was definitely delicious, one of the best I've had. The pad thai had a bit different taste to it but still very enjoyable.... More
