“German Bar Thai Restaurant! Who knew?”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Great Thai food and great German beer.
Fascinating place. One wall has a German bar with German beers on tap and a German bartender (turns out he is part owner). The rest of the place is traditional Thai down to the wait staffs clothes.
Food was great. We loved it.

“Great Staff”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

These people make sure you feel as though you came into their home. You can not find better service. Toomi your the best. If you go away from here disappointed its your fault for not speaking up. I've not seen a more attentive staff anywhere. Great food. The Tom yum goong soup is a must try, the galangal in this soup makes it taste like nothing you have eaten before.

If you want spicy you need to let them know or your dishes will be pretty mild, I'm a bit of a chili head so I have them spice it up then add more of their house made Thai chili's that are blended together with fish sauce, lime juice and a touch of auger from what one of the waitresses told me, what flavor and punch for those that like heat with flavor and to just heat for heat.

Also love the pad kee Mao, oh so good. Try this place you will not be disappointed.

“Do not be fooled by the exterior appearance”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

While visiting a relative in a hospital nearby we drove past this place. Even though it doesn't look like much from the front on El Camino Real we decided to try it anyway, and we are so glad we did. We were in the area several days and this was the best meal we had. Once inside, we were very pleased with the elegant decor and pleasant ambiance. The server took time to help us decipher the menu and came back a couple times to answer questions. Everything we ordered was delightful - beautiful to look at and oh, so tasty. We're trying to think of a good reason to go back to the Peninsula so we can dine there again.

“Always enjoyable food”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Best around for Thai. Same owner and staff for many years. Menu is consistently tasty. Choo Chee Salmon is just right.

“adequate Thai restaurant in San Carlos”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

nothing special and not worthy of return visit. Service also was dead-on adequate as were all four plates we tried.
