We read a few reviews that said "great for take-out". It's also great for dine-in! They served up the best Pad Thai I've had, possibly ever. Their pan-fried dumplings and crab rangoons were also excellent. We'll eat there every visit to OOB! We even swung...More

This little place does a lot of business and was very pleasant for dining in. It's not gourmet Thai food, but well cooked and presented, staff very courteous and efficient.

Small restaurant in Old Orchard Beach, ME. Not very good looking from the outside, but the food is excellent. Very good service, and, did I mention, excellent food. Vegetable tempura and spicy pad thai with basil was delicious. Will definitely go back.

This place delivered right to our hotel and had great food, fresh, flavorful and relatively quick. I would definitely recommend for delivery or takeout.

Great restaurant great vibe when you walk through the door. The use of wood as furniture was very nice and refreshing. Our food was timely and service was nice. I'd give this place an 8 out of 10!
