I am in town by myself and just needed a few light evening meals. I had the coconut soup, light, hot and tasty. The fresh rolls, very fresh. The Korean pancakes with scallions were crispy and filling. I found the place to be very clean, unlike a previous review, even though, as is typical for a Waterville Main Street restaurant... More

I love Thai cuisine! The food is excellent and the service is great. Comfortable for dinning with friends or just going for lunch by yourself.

I absolutely love Thai cuisine and I try every Thai restaurant I can find in the area. The food (Pad See Ew and Spicy Pad Thai) was definitely good (not the best, but good), but I don't think I could ever bring myself to go back due to how dirty the restaurant was. There were spider webs with dead bugs... More

I've been here twice recently- the food is fresh and delicious- but it was expensive for lunch $15-20 plus for each person just for the meal and something to drink. Both times I went, the place was EMPTY. Sad. The last time I went they had a local person as a waitress who knew ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the menu or... More

Tried this restaurant on a recent visit to Waterville. Small place. Staff was friendly and attentive. I had the Panang curry. It was OK, nothing special. The sign said it was under new management. It may be worth another try.

We like to stop at this restaurant once or twice a year, the last few times it was closed so it has been over a year. A couple of years ago, the management had changed. That was fine, the food was still good to us. However, when we walked in this time, it was completely empty. Not so odd at... More

Really wonderful food, fast and friendly service. Have only been once and it was a nice place to go if you are going to any shows at the Opera House, walking distance away and a quick in and out service with great food

We managed to get a meal here once, after trying several times without success (being kept waiting until we finally left without any food). The last time, we did finally get served, and the food was barely mediocre. Will never go there again. Even for Waterville, this is unacceptable. And that's a fairly low standard.

I ended up here just looking for a snack mid-afternoon. I felt rushed being approached a couple of times to take my order despite still having the menu in my hands and looking at it. I ordered Vietnamese Rolls and WonTon Soup. The rolls were super-crispy but not overly greasy. There were excellent and I would have happily eaten more... More

Authentic homemade Thai food. The family is so sweet and make all their dishes with heart and soul. We have eaten here dozens of times and loved all of it. Mango rice, curry, and all the soups are divine!
