Living in the south I don't find to many cities with great Asian cuisine. Thai food is the closet to Cambodian food which is my ethnicity. I was pleased with this location because the food tasted authentic. I work in downtown but live in sugar land and have often driven into downtown on my off days just to eat here.... More

The Chef tries very hard to please all pallets...however, when you dial down to the authentic Thai Chanthaburi style preparation, from curry crabs to real coconut ice cream (with bits)...Yummy!! True compassionate and caring service... Parking is a hit and miss though...hint, more options around 6 pm when metered parking is suspended and people are headed home from work! Enjoy,,,I... More

Stopped in here for a weekday lunch and found it to be pleasant and tasty. I had the lunch special with panang curry that included coconut soup, a small salad, and a banana fritter. The prices are reasonable, and the service was polite even though the restaurant was very busy. This restaurant is nothing fancy, but it's a good choice... More

I work only a couple of blocks away, and this place has been producing decent Thai food for this area. Noted that you can not find many decent Asian restaurants in downtown with Chinatown quality food. However, most of the time I'll order to go, or eating early before lunch time. The staffs are overwhelmed during lunch hours (12 noon... More

Good place for quick bite in theater district. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. Good value for money. Panang curry is good. We felt a fowl odour, they can keep this place little better and cleaner.

The food is great and the ambiance is not fine dining, but an excellent meal with friends. There is no reason to linger because you are probably on your way to a Wortham or Alley performance, anyway. You will rub elbows with the casts, singers, and musicians who are headed to your event if you go early enough ... and... More

This is a good restaurant to go to if you are downtown near the Alley Theater or Wortham and want a quick bite to eat. The Thai food has been 'Americanized' to accommodate more sensative palates. I speak Thai, as a consequence I get the spicier dishes. Service is quick.
