$2 for a scoop of rice??? Come on! Waitress with attitude? Come on! Pad Tai so vinegary you can't eat it. Come on! Music annoying. Beautiful looking still after 14 years but who needs it?More

This place has it all! cute little spot tucked into a strip mall, so it is not easily noticed and doesn't have hoards of people blabbing away and taking selfies while waiting for their food. The service was excellent! We went on Valentines Day and...More

Great Thai, very tasty, but wasn't overly hot when home delivered. Maybe they need some more home delivery drivers during busy periods.

The food was mediocre and the service was terrible! The staff huddled around the bar and mostly ignored customers. And the Thai food was barely Thai! It wasn't especially tasty nor appealingly served. I can't understand what the buzz about this place is all about....More
