This is a perfectly fine local Thai restaurant that serves people in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. We come here when we are in the mood for Thai and don't want to drive. There's a pretty standard menu for most Thai restaurants, and that's what you...More

Got food delivered. Delivery was prompt and smooth. Food just wasn't that good. Most of it was fine (although the Tom Yum noodle was just plain bad). I assume there is better Thai somewhere in the district.

Local friend took us for a quick Thai lunch Ordered lunch specials: combo vegetable, green curry, Panang chicken. Appetizers included chicken satay and spring rolls. Portions were large and came quickly. Average tasting.

Very nice place. Good original spice and good price. We liked the design of the interior, good service and nice location across the market on weekends.

This is our go-to local Thai eatery. The food is good and suitably priced. When you tell them about a desired spice level, they listen. Service is fine. Most Thai places around here have more-or-less the same menu, as does Sanphan. That's not a bad...More

A delightful family run restaurant away from the crowds. Delicious classic Thai made with fresh ingredients and luscious sauces. Appreciated a flavorful salmon with a surprisingly good green curry sauce, extremely good pad thai , a pork and vegetable dish that was as spicy hot...More
