Wonderful Thai restaurant on the Main Street. On street parking. The best Thai food we have had. Fresh and great tasting. Service very attentive. Will come again when in area.

Its very difficult to review a restaurant who books your table for 5 and then WONT SEAT YOU! I have never been less professionally dealt with in a restaurant. NO EXPLANATION. NO REGRETS ON THE PART OF THE STAFF. Avoid this establishment

We all ordered different dishes, and agreed it was all flavorful, fresh, and authentic. The server we had was lovely and very accommodating. The Thom Ka soup was particularly special! I would highly recommend this place and was glad it was recommended to us!

We try not to give out many 5-star ratings, so we really believe this place merits this top designation. Their drinks are wonderful. Our group tried the ginger, elderflower, and lychee martinis, as well as the Old Fashioneds and Manhattansand some plum sake. Everything was...More

Great location and delicious food! Pad Thai was one of the best we've tried. Came for lunch, got to try several different things and all of them were very good.
