Good food, fresh & delicious. Little garden outside amused the kids while we waited for our meals. We went on a weeknight & the place was packed, which is always a good sign!

We being a family group, visit this restaurant often. Without doubt the best Thai food in town. The service is always excellent. The food arrives promptly and hot where appropriate.
