There's a good variety of Thai dishes that everyone can find something they like. It's fun to share the family style portions or have leftovers for the next day. Vegan, vegetarian and meat eaters all have several options.

The food is fine, but very expensive for Thai. The restaurant is same and loud. Most annoying is the 10% "gratuity" that is tacked on to carry out orders. For just 5% more you might as well get table service. I wouldn't rush back to eat here as it just isn't worth it.

I was looking forward to visiting, but the restaurant did not live up to expectations. The food was mediocre at best. I could see the chefs working hard, but the food was nothing special. However, the prices are a bit high, perhaps because this is a resort area. Also, they charge a 10% gratuity for bills over $50, even for... More

We were shoe-horned into the restaurant one evening after a day of site-seeing. (The tight quarters will get better when the restaurant moves to their new space currently under construction.) The food was good but a bit pricey for what we're used to paying for Thai food.

It if is good enough for JT then it is good enough for me. Great food. Great reputation. You wouldn't think that Thai food could be good in Montana. But surprise! The food is delicious! The chef trained in Thailand and brought her skills back to Big Sky. Yummy!!

Ordered the Tamarindo Halibut and it came out horrible. The green beans were 4 inches long while the Halibut was chopped up into tiny bits, the size of a dime. It's should be lightly sauced but it came out like soup. Don't understand why they have good ratings, maybe because there is nothing else around that is better

It sometimes takes a bit longer to be served here, but worth the wait. Small place, but feels like a party with friends. The food is excellent and authentic. We sat at the bar and loved watching the cooks work. Great place for a date. I wish they were open earlier so I could stop in after skiing!

Excellent food at a reasonable price in a cozy and a lively atmosphere. Reservations are a good idea.
