“One of the best lunch places in town,”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Friendly service - a lunch menu, even specials starting at a reasonable $6.95. The lunch includes a peanut sauce based salad, soup, "tacos" and dipping sauce and white rice besides your choice of entree [try the pad thai or one of the curries]. Other choices for lunch or dinner cost more but are not unreasonable. In the summers you can dine outside in the back by the San Luis Creek.

“Service needs work”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

My boyfriend and I came here on a Sunday night around 6pm. We waited a good 10 minutes for someone to even acknowledge us. It looked like they needed way more wait staff. The servers were running around frantically. There were a lot of college students in there being kind of obnoxious. People were coming in and out for take out orders and we just continued to sit there. Finally we got seated. Took awhile for someone to come take our order. Once they did the food came out relatively quickly but we never really saw them again. No one came to refill the water. The food was average. The lighting in the restaurant was kinda dim and there wasn't much in the way of ambiance. It just felt so hectice and chaotic in there. It wasnt a relaxing experience at all. It was ok, but i probably wouldn't go back. There are a lot of other tasty looking places in town I would try first.

“Terrific authentic thai food”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

Enjoyed this food greatly. Spices, herbs, fresh ingredients made the dishes to die for. All the flavors you'd associate with thai food can be easily distinguished in their dishes and what a yum! Decor is kitschy but adds to the panache and genuineness of the place.

“Good food, good service, ambiance is average”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

The food came out pretty fast, but out of four dishes, they got one wrong (mine) and I had to wait 10-minutes to get mine redelivered. Food was very tasty, the service was very good (maybe because it wasn't so crowded; we were there on Farmer's Market night). The decor is simple, plain, but appeared clean. Needs some Thai music to help the atmosphere some. Lots of windows help to make it feel not so small, which it is. Overall, a good restaurant, but we probably won't be back too soon, or make a special trip just to go here. An improved ambiance would make all the difference.

“Thai food the way you like it”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

All the Thai dishes are authentic and well prepared. Be sure to let your server know the degree of hotness you prefer. In Thailand people like their food really hot and spicy, but if you haven't developed the palate for this you will want to tone it down.
