Wonderful food at great prices! We like all of their dishes, and the Thai ice tea is great. We love the coconut curry dishes.

My wife is from Thailand & she said this is the most authentic she's had here. It's very clean & well appointed. The flavors are fantastic, but if you don't like spicy, don't do it. If you like it, go for it. The flavors will...More
