looking small place but what a service and food! Very busy, and I see why - a variety of food for all tastes, friendly staff.

On an early Tuesday evening (6pm), I walked in and the place was almost empty. I'm surprised--maybe Boston eats late? I'm not sure of the name of the dish (Pla Choo Chee, I think), but it was fish/tofu in a spicy/creamy sauce. It was awesome--fresh and perfectly cooked. Just thinking about it makes me want another plate!

Went with some friends. Service was attentive. Food was a bit plane for my tastes. I had the Tom Yum soup and the Masaman Curry chicken. If you like your Thai food a bit toned down then this place will be very enjoyable. If you are more of a spicy purist you may be disappointed.

We stumbled upon this place during a trip to Boston. The menu in the window looked good so we tried it. We got the Golden Tofu appetizer, which was pretty good. I got the yellow vegetable curry with tofu and rice and my boyfriend got tofu pad thai. The entrees were awesome. It was the best curry I've had. The... More

Décor and furnishings are drab and uninviting. Although staff are welcoming there is little more to complement in this restaurant. Despite claiming they cater to food allergies they really don't explaining that food has been 'pre-prepared' earlier in the day and therefore they cannot offer anything fresh. My only option was therefore bland and overpriced. There are lots of good... More

It is beyond me how anyone can rate this average! Boston really suffers from poor asian cuisine and this place is a shining light. The decor and ambience is quite old school and we were there saturday eve and it was a bit too quiet. We nearly left but were so pleased we didn't. We ordered a mix of the... More

The ambience may not be perfect, but the food is above average. For appetizers I would recommend the Golden Tofu. Its lightly fried and fresh inside. They don't have real crab, so check before ordering krab dishes. Hot oil or hot sauce is not served and you will have to ask for it. The attendants are friendly.

I have been to many thai restaurants around the city of Boston and most of them have a pretty common taste. Sometimes one recipe tastes the same as the others which looks like they use the same kind of sauce for fish, pork and chicken. But this restaurant located in Mass Ave near the famous Berklee College of Music offers... More

Visited this place many times as a Berklee student. The house special thai soup with duck and fried ice cream are my favorite order, but they have some great pad thai as well. Totally beats most of the nearby asian competition(tie with Pho Basil, though).

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
