First impresssions may not be so good as the restaurant has the air of a cafe rather than a restaurant (but we have often found this to be the case in less salubrious Thai restaurants). However the service was friendly and attantive and they handled my wife's food allergies well. We both enjoyed the food so much we went back the next night.
On both occasions there were several local people there which always is a good sign.

If you are stay around this place you need to go try their coconut based soup. It is awesome and tasty. Good service and staff is great. Also they do not use Styrofoam in their takeouts.

Food in this place may not tasked like a Michellin rated restaurant, but it was very solid, tasted good, and had excellent prices (the Lunch Special Pad Thai - a good sized portion - cost USD 6.90). Service is friendly. Do no expect luxury, but a simple thai place with solid food and great value!

We had take out food.
Food was good, especially the duck.
PadThai was ok.

I would recommend it. A bit outside of downtown.

We were expecting a great meal from the reviews. I'm guessing people don't know what "good Thai food" is like. My husband had Panang Curry I had Chicken Pad Thai both were very mild and plain not real favorful. We were disappointed with the food. The coconut soup was good! Would not recommend this restaurant -go to Tommy Wok's in Carmel - way better!
