Stopped for a quick dinner of pad Thai and Thai iced tea. Pad Thai was good, but the Thai iced tea was way too sweet and milky. I learned to never order this again. Service was prompt and friendly.

Great Thai food. Don't let the strip mall location fool you. There is no real atmosphere, but the food makes up for it. Service was attentive and polite.

We bought dinner for 03 mid February 2017. The staff was very nice, interior attractive and clean. Parking is free but busy during the peak hours. Price mid range.

My wife and I ordered off the dinner menu at lunch time. The well trained staff was very efficient getting lunch served to those with tight schedules. The soy based sauce for the steamed dumpling appetizer was delicious. Try the Thai iced tea. It is sweet, creamy and well seasoned. The prices and portion sizes are good too. We recommend... More

We traveled from Chicago to LA on Route66 and tested a lot of different restaurants. This was the by far best food we got :) Nice staff, fast service and really good and tasty food.

Always a good choice for a quick meal. We come to this place 3 or 4 times a year when we are on a business trip, but the restaurant owners always recognize us.

Great little place that serves traditional Thai dishes. Make sure to ask them to hold down the spicy-ness if you are not comfortable with the heat. Great for take-out!

Came in for an early 11 am lunch. Only one other customer. Ordered "Chicken with basil" lunch special. Rice was dried out and getting firm and almost hard. Chicken was overcooked and relatively tough. Lots of veggies (zucchini, yellow bell peppers and carrots). Basil flavor was modest. Typical iceberg salad. Deep fried wonton skin with a dab of yellow squash(?)... More
