A local place that is very cool, offering an American menu, and a Thai menu! Try the Thai, you will not regret it. Clean, professional, popular, great food, very fair prices. No wonder they have been in business a long time

We had dinner at this place. In my opinion, the portions for Thai food, we're small for the price. And we felt the food was just average. Service was very good. Cocktails also seemed more costly than other restaurants in the area.

Have dined in (pleasant) and taken out quite excellent pad Thai. Interestingly the clam chowder was really, really good. Service was right on and not annoyingly over attentive. Will be back for more.

I have been going to this place as a snowbird for a few winters now. I used to see it in the strip mall but , until a friend introduced us to it, never stopped in. It is my go to favorite. We love sitting at the bar, not because we watch sports , but always meet someone interesting to... More

Don't let the strip mall setting fool you because everything here is nothing but the best. Their Thai offerings are miles beyond perfect and my wife says the same about their seafood. The service left nothing to be desired. We just found a new BFF cloaked as a restaurant.

We've had lunch there twice, the first time was why we went back a second time, and there will be more. It's in a strip mall but the ambience makes you forget where it is located. My wife loves Thai and I, well, not so much. But that doesn't keep me from finding a variety of non Thai options on... More

The fish and chips were excellent on this visit and the last but I remember the Thai from previous visits was outstanding too.

Even though they have a pub food menu, treat yourself and choose from the Thai food menu. We've been there so many times it's hard to recall every Thai dish we've had, but they have all been delicious, and presented beautifully. The staff there are always professional and work hard to ensure you're well cared for whether seated at a... More
