Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a favourite of our friends so whenever we visit and ask to take them out, they choose this restaurant most of the time. It's not a big restaurant but the staff are friendly and the service relatively quick. The taste of the dishes...is reasonably close to what you'd get in Thailand, so the flavours are nice. No corkage on bringing your own wine.More

This is not a large restaurant, around 10-12 tables. The food here is authentic and the ingredients are full of flavor. In terms of spices, they are not Americanized, so just be aware that if you order it with extra spice, it will be spicy....It's best to ask for the red sauce on the side so you can dole it on your meal in small increments. My favorite dish is the Pad Thai (I know I know...boring choice) but it is prepared just perfectly that I keep going back to it. Pair that with a Thai iced tea and I'm in my happy food place. The lunch specials are very reasonable and comes with a soup and salad along with the main dish, which is plenty of food, often enough for leftovers. Overall, one of my favorite restaurants in the area.More

I had never been to a Thai restaurant, but was very impressed with everything here. The restaurant is small, perhaps 10 tables, which made for a cozy environment. Our server was pleasant and attentive, and she helped us out with any questions we had about...the menu. The food was excellent and the portions were more than enough. Appetizers were very good and the food had just the right amount of spice, at a reasonable price. Will definitely returnMore

We were a group of 7, for a dinner/birthday celebration, and ordered an eclectic selection of dishes -- all of them were a success! Chicken satay, fried rice, shrimp, fish, and other vegetarian dishes, soups, and what not. Very delicious and recommended!

We were not from the area and did a Google search to find this tasty Thai Restaurant. The food and service were quite good. However, I ordered yellow seafood curry and was charged an extra $10 for noodles. I'm not sure who eats curry without...white rice or noodles??? But thought it was unfair to charge $10 extra for noodles to be eaten with your curry. Albeit good food, it's an expensive Thai place.More

My co-worker and I were driving through the area on a Tuesday afternoon and looking for a place to lunch. We both liked Thai food and decided to stop in. Great decision. A nice, quaint, charming, little restaurant right on the main drag and directly...across from city hall. We began our meal with the steamed dumplings. 4 large and tasty dumplings with much more meat than casing. The lunch specials came with a soup or salad. We each chose the soup which happened to be chicken broth with tofu. Wow! Delicious. It also had shreds of lettuce/cabbage. Good size bowl. We each ordered the chicken pad thai. I ordered it medium spicy (1 hot pepper out of 3 hot peppers) and my co-worker ordered it without the spice. The medium spice was tolerable. It wasn't so hot that you couldn't enjoy it, but it was hot enough. Both very flavorful. Did I mention they provide metal chopsticks? Hadn't seen that before. The service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. There was street parking in the front of the restaurant and down the side streets. I'm sorry I don't live closer because I would put this on the rotation.More

Had a dinner here with a colleague. Seated quickly and staff were very good. Remember if you want alcohol to take it with you! Food was excellent and service quick. Prices very fair too. Definitely would come back next time in town

Love this place. Was in town for a comedy show and decided to try it out. Really tasty. Ordered the steamed dumplings (amazing sauce), Thai Salad (note there is curry in the peanut dressing), Pad Kee Mao, and more. Everything was just delicious!

I’m only a Thai cuisine novice but this place was a treat! From the friendly service to their spicy hot currys! Chicken satay moist and flavorful came with a peanut sauce you’d want to lick the bowl ! Talk about hot stuff - try the...green curry, you’ll see what I mean. Great Pad See Ew too .... so scrummy !!!More

Great food, great service. The deep fried snapper was divine and not too too spicy. We adored the deep fried ice cream. I cannot wait to return.

Stopped by for dinner on a Saturday night. We arrived before 7 pm and within twenty minutes the entire place was packed. It seems like reservations are the smart way to go on weekends since the restaurant is on the smaller side. Food and service...were exceptional. Dessert was a satisfying surprise (try the red bean ice cream), and prices were very affordable. Décor really adds up to a calming dining experience. Plenty of street parking in the area. Very recommended, will definitely return.More

Nice little Thai place where the heat is done right. Hit enough to know it is Thai not so hot that you cannot taste the food.
