Although we prefer al fresco eating this place with its typical cheers bar and the most attentive barman in Florida, serves ups some wonderful Thai food. A combination of good food and well priced, with excellent service, this became our favourite eatery.

I had very low expectations considering the strip mall / bar vibe of the place at first but I was super happy and surprised to enjoy some amazing food. I have now been back a dozen times and the staff are great, food consistent and pricing fair.

great Thai food within what looks to be an American grill and sports bar though they do have an American menu. Their sign doesn't indicate that Thai is available. But it's so good!

I have had Thai food all over the country, this restaurant is in my top 5! The restaurant was spotless and the service was impeccable. I had the coconut soup as an appetizer and the green curry for dinner. Both were excellent. Highly recommend this place, don't be fooled that it doesn't look like a traditional Thai restaurant!

If you want to have a relaxing time then this is NOT the place for you! I was asked to leave while sitting AT THE NOISY BAR for talking on my cell phone! I was having a quiet conversation with my son and was asked to leave because the people next to me at THE VERY NOISY bar didn't like... More

The food has decent flavor, the lunch portions are very small and it's a little pricy. Our club stopped going there since you don't get much value for what you spend. I mean really, how much do a few more noodles and vegetables cost?

They were very busy, but our party of 6 was seated in a timely manner. The waiter was great and the food was good. I look forward to my next visit.
