“Good quick bite on the road”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

stopped in on our way driving up the coast. We were hungry and their food fit the bill. Enjoyed the yellow curry. Kids found their favorite Mongolian beef. Portions were a tad small but ok. They charge extra for rice which seemed odd, but overall a good value. Friendly service.

“Friendly, fresh--but ambiance needs help”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

We really enjoyed the food (Mongolian Beef, Pad Thai, Chicken Potstickers, white and brown rice) and the wait staff was so friendly, helpful and attentive. Good value for the money, and lots of students coming through to eat or do take-out shows that it's a favorite. But the room really needs updating, our booth seats were ripped, and it did detract from our enjoyment. Maybe that's why people are taking their food out?

“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.
