This tiny little authentic Thai restaurant with its amazing food and fast friendly service is my all time favorite. A group of friends and family helped us celebrate our wedding anniversary here. We practically took the place over and they didn't mind in the least!...More

This place is so small, but what food! There are only about 6 or 8 small tables, so a lot of folks do take-out. Usually the only entree I get is the Pad Thai, which is the best I've ever had.

Great little "hole in the wall" place, 5 tables, great food, fast and friendly service, very popular with locals, great for take out or eat in. Some of the best Thai food around. Amazing what comes out of that tiny kitchen.
