Wonderful Thai food prepared by a sweet lady from Thailand. Lots of dishes to choose from, huge portions, and the best egg rolls I've found anywhere.

I have ate here many time and is a jewel. Excellent food and very responsible. Very small and can run out of food so best to call ahead and order and tell what time you will arrive. Egg rolls are to die for. Thai tea is also good. Sometimes can close without warning so call and make sure is open.

We've eaten here for several years now and it's like a secret spot! If you get here too late in the day, the owner may tell you "we ran out of food" and they close early! It's bizarre but quirky, and we love that she only gets a certain amount of food, so you know it is fresh. It's authentic... More

My partner and I ate here last weekend and it was wonderful. Very authentic Thai food that's affordable. It is a bit of a drive from Johnson city but well worth the trip. Try the red curry it was wonderful so we're the egg rolls! We had a lovely chat with the owner as well- it's a small place and... More

The real deal ! Friendly Thai staff, authentic, made to order Thai food w/excellent spice variety, i give them 5stars! A little different than Red Chili's (in downtown Eliz) & worth the short drive, if one truly likes authentic Thai. Call first to assure days/times open.

Egg rolls & my husband's food were excellent. The massaman curry was gross. This is my all time favorite everywhere I go, so I had to try it. They used sweet potatoes vs. regular ones and it was WAY too thick...pretty disgusting consistency actually. It's supposed to be soupy, which gets thicker when you add the rice. Suggestion to the...

Noodles with a lot of really hot spices. I found ONE (1) shrimp in my plate. Owners are nice friendly people, but they can keep their Pad Thai. I will not return. Monsoon's in Butler, TN and Hunan's in Boone, NC are much better.

I have eaten here on several occasions and always been happy! The food is excellent and the owner and friends are always welcoming. I have been by occasionally and she has not been open but she has a sister-in-law from Thailand that is in now and helping her with the fresh preparation so they are open on a regular schedule...

Awesome food. This is real deal authentic Thai food. It cooked to order when you place an order. Everything on the menu is great tasting. Get there early so you can get a seat and eat since she does run out of the great fresh food she prepares when you order. Friendly and clean. Definitely a must try for authentic... More

This place is run by a wonderful Thai woman and her Hampton native friend. Set in a small house, as soon as you have a seat, you become family! The food is killer and more than reasonably priced! The portions are more than generous, two people can easily split a $10 entre, but i would recommend you get two and... More
