We had lunch here yesterday and we liked it. The decoration is quite simple compared to other Thai restaurants I have been in, but it makes the place look clean. The staff was very friendly and serving. Food was tasty and abundant, at a very good price. We liked it!!

My reviews of restaurants are typically wonderful. This was an all around bad experience. The place was freezing. The young waitress never asked how my food was. I would have liked to of had some rice with my curry dish. She literally left out the front door and came back later. The food was ordered to be four star spicey.... More

I had dinner here January 2017. Here's the reason for poor rating: 1. 2 of our 4 chicken satay were undercooked. We sent these back and were brought 2 more - not that any of us wanted to eat them after that! They didn't really apologize much at all and they didn't credit the dish. This was OK at the... More

The food is decent, but nothing special. It's literally the same stuff they serve down the street at Pon Prom, but double and triple the price. I do not go here, and frankly don't know why people pay the outrageous prices.

Owners are natives and tailor the food to your requests if you are bold enough to suggest what you want and how you want it. Go for it. The Tastes are terrific. We're locals and go back often.

Ever wondered what prison food in Thailand tastes like? Now is your chance to find out, prepare for the horror of Thai prison food. What a waste of money, this place takes advantage of being the only spot on mercer island. Paying good money for bad food is unforgivable, I don't pay to suffer and can't stand throwing food to...

I liked the atmosphere and the staff of the restaurant. The food was ok, I had better Thai food before. We had Pad Thai and Red Curry Chicken there.

I am always surprised that this restaurant is near-empty for dinner when we visit. The food is flavorful - I think many comparable dishes beat those at nearby Pon Proem, but are a little pricier, so not our option for take-out. Nicer decor. While the food uses the traditional five star spice scale, they'll spice up to "20 stars" if... More

Ordered a tofu pad Thai from this place with two star spice. Well something more tasteless I've yet to eat. Dry, with no discernable flavour, let alone a two star spice, and no peanuts or lime. Just lots of bitter Mung bean sprouts. Did not finish this meal. A waste of money.
