I have eaten Thai all over the USA. Our food tasted nothing like any Thai food I have eaten. Nothing. It was flavorless. It is as though it was missing the taste it is supposed to have. I have Pad Ke Mow (drunken noodles) my...More

Our favorite takeout spot and also a quick meal close to home. It's a small, unassuming restaurant in a mini mall atmosphere but the food is always prepared well and perfectly spiced. Try the Pad Thai or any of the curries. Excellent!
