Great Thai food. Service is quick. The place is clean and gets very crowded at lunchtime but they still get your food to you in a timely manner. Worth a try to check it out!

This is our go-to place for office lunches. The neighborhood may seem a little sketchy, but the food is outstanding. I've only had a handful of different items here, but only because I keep craving the same dish, #5 with chicken and steamed rice, medium spicy.

The food, service and portions are amazing. We have yet to find any Thai restaurant that even comes close.

Decided to give it a try on a recent trip to Boise. Was very pleasantly surprised. Special of the day was shrimp ---- with asparagus. My wife is diabetic, so asked if they could do grilled shrimp with a little garlic and just steamed asparagus. They readily accommodated her. The asparagus was perfectly cooked and the shrimp was very tasty.... More

This is one of the best Asian food restaurants in Boise. The exterior is unimpressive, but don't let that scare you away. Consistently great food and service.

My friend and I ate here. The food was quick and tasty. I've been to Thailand and this isn't quite like the food I learned to cook over there...it's definitely been 'Americanized' but it's still good.

This was by far the best Thai food I've had outside of California. Fresh, spicy, and speedy service. Iced tea was amazing...so was the sticky rice.

I get to Boise about once a week to shop for groceries and other errands, and I try to come here at least once a month for lunch, and if I can't sit and eat for whatever reason, I order food to go. My favorite lunch special is the Pad Kra Pao with pork or beef. The jalapenos are always... More

This place is located in a shopping strip and they seem to have a TON of regular locals and the staff already know their orders. Food was inexpensive and good.

We go here a few times a year. The food is always good, not great just decent Asian. Service this time was slow, missed an item ordered, had trouble getting check. What was goofy and very distracting was having a basketball game or ESPN news playing over sound system. Will probably go back but try other places first.
