This is the only Thai restaurant we eat in. We live 30 mins away so not really handy. We have eaten lunch during the week and the specials are great and very affordable. We have also eaten from the regular menu on weekends and have loved it. We have tried a number of items and they have always been good.... More

Staff were very friendly and the service was good. Unfortunately the food was way too salty and I felt sick afterwards. I could have brought it up when we were eating but they were very busy so I thought I'd save the trouble.

I loved the atmosphere and decorations. A very comfortable place and the servers were so nice and did an excellent job. The food was very good. The only comment my family made is that they couldn't have used a little more spice. For me that was fine too much garlic and spice bothers my stomach.

I loved the food and the price was way fair for a resort town. If you like Thai food, this is the place to go. Inside and patio seating.

We were visiting our kids and grandkids, so we decided to do takeout. There were 7 of us, so everyone wanted something different, but they got it all correct and still hot by the time we picked it up and back to our son's place.

We stopped by for dinner because of all the amazing reviews but left disappointed. The amount of food was certainly generous and the service was friendly but the food definitely didn't live up to expectations. Overall the food was much just heavier than we usually get at Thai restaurants but maybe they are catering to their clientele. We love Thai... More

Just a nice place to eat, that simple. I had the yellow curry and my wife had pad Thai. Both were delicious. Service was top notch.

Probably spent at least two months in total in Thailand and so yes, we have eaten a lot of Thai food here and abroad. This food is the real thing except for the mildness of the spice which was a consensus thing since not everyone likes it as spicy as we do. All in all its a good representation of... More
