I work in the area and was looking for some lunch takeout. I've driven by this place, but was unsure of it (being next to a Domino's scared me a little). But I took a chance. The inside is very clean and nicely decorated. Not...More

This newly Thai restaurant is so good. The place is relatively small, nicely decorated, friendly and the food delicious. It is made to order and you can choose your level of spiciness from 1-10. You will thoroughly enjoy it. If you are in Pawtucket, RI...More
