I arrived to the restaurant per my friends request at 11:45 a.m. for lunch. Good call on her part as the place was packed at noon. Not a seat to be had and line at the door. She had the Ka Prow Kai and I...More

I've been here before. I thought my Ka prow kai, recommended by the waitress (looking for something other than my go-tos) was good. That's until I found a long hair in my dish. Then another long hair in my dish. My waitress was nice but...More

This restaurant is very good. We went there on a Sunday night and they don't serve alcohol, so they told us we could go next door and get a bottle of wine. Coming from Michigan we had never heard of that, but it was fun....More

Having living in Asia for many years, I was really disappointed with this restaurant. I ordered takeout including whole fried fish, chicken pineapple, and tofu and veggies. Shockingly, all three had the same flavor, sauce, and veggie ingredients. The all tasted a little bit sweet...More

I had the Green Curry with shrimp. It was very nice, with just a hint of sweetness, spicy but too hot. Service was fast and polite. The restaurant has a cheap, no-frills feel, but the food is delicious.

My two 20-something companions are picky and tend to order readily identifiable foods. The chicken with pineapple and veggies, and the beef and broccoli were each covered in decent enough sauces. What was really good was the yellow beef curry. I can't name it, but...More

Well, it is supposed to be Vietnamese. If you remove all vegetables, you'll get an idea of the food. It was just fair.

The first thing I always order is a Thai ice tea. (Thai tea is reddish naturally, and the iced version looks really spectacular. They make the best Thai Iced tea in our metro-west area. Believe me, I've tried them all!) I'm just a fan. Every...More

I've been eating here for years and often order take out. The food is consistently good as is the service. There is a lot of variety on the menu. A price performer for sure.
