I can only comment on the chicken pad Thai as that is all I had. Once I tried it, I was hooked. Delicious and a really good price and portion size. Freindly staff and great cold beer.

I personally judge a Thai restaurant by its Tom Yum soup. This one was exceptionally disappointing. The broth was thin, too vinegary, and nothing like I'm used to. Too many vegetables. Also, no coconut milk. I also tried the papaya salad (too vinegary, not crispy),...More
