Tucked away on a back street in Montpelier is this cute little restaurant. We were greeted at the door by happy, eager staff (as everyone knows this is not the norm nowadays at many businesses). My only disappointment was the lack of a full bar....More

We enjoy Thai food and were delighted to find a great meal in Montpelier. A basil duck dish was especially delightful. We also tried a green curry and some other typical dishes, and all were acceptable, though not memorable.

Dumplings were very good. Green curry was a little sweet for our taste, but well prepared. I had a duck curry which was excellent. Service was good. Room was very warm. Wanted to open a window.

Stopped here driving through Montpelier, my first choice for Thai (Wilawain) was closed. This restaurant is an old decrepit house that hasn’t been deep-cleaned in ages. As you walk to the back, towards the bathroom, you pick up a dusty old carpet smell. You don’t...More
