We just had lunch there today, but decided to eat our main meal. I had Curry Lamb with rice and veggies and always adorned with a beautiful orchid. It was so so delicious, I just loved it! My husband had the Shrimps and Filet, also very good, with mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. It was a bit pricey, but well... More

Thai menu and American menu. You can't go wrong with either one. Prices are very reasonable, and the service staff is exceptional.

Veggie Rolls with a sweet and sour sauce and a couple of cold drafts hit the spot after golf today. My golfing buddy enjoyed the Sand Trap Nachos with a Guiness draft. Service was quick and served with a smile. Thanks Nida, great personality😊😊😊

Went with friends who own a second home in Venice. Located in a strip mall. Surprised by menu offering Thai food in a sports bar, but there is also an American menu. We ate a variety of Thai dishes and enjoyed them all. The service was attentive and good. It is a sports bar atmosphere and very enjoyable for a... More

I arrived at 7:35 on Sunday night. They had a closed sign in the door, which was unbelievable. I looked at their window sign and it said open until 8. So I walked inside. The bartender hollered at me "CLOSED". Nothing else, just "CLOSED". Maybe that was all the English he knew? They get a zero for manners, a zero... More

Loved it! Never knew such a great place was in the strip! I will return again. The waiter was awesome! He kept returning and we just couldn't make up our minds what to order! I decided on his recommendation ... Winner winner!

My wife and I hit the sand trap after a long day of house hunting, we were so hungry and with our eating habits we were not expecting much. My wife is vegan and I have a legitimate gluten allergy. We expected greasy pub food and were delighted to find they also served Thai food and they were very busy... More
