“Very good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Love Thai food and this place is up there with the best. Great service, we booked ahead on open table, it worked well, the food was great. Good value too. A short walk from the main Santa Monica drag but worth it.

“Incredibly good food, interesting menu. Great value. Awesome Pad Thai.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

It's a well varied menu, plenty of options but mostly I don't get further than the pad thai and the yellow curries which are just superb. Hearty portions, clean rice, fresh veg & spot on sauces, every time I go here, which is fairly often.
The dining room is bare bones and small so if you go when it's busy it's noisy and you are close to your neighbors. The service is very good, the beers are icy cold.
I would recommend this place for family or friends, a casual outing or a hungry evening. It's not a date place.
There are a couple of tables outside on the footpath so you can watch Santa Monica Blvd while you dine.

“Better than average Thai food in excellent downtown Santa Monica location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

A neighborhood Thai restaurant with typical well-prepared dishes. Service is good, and room is simple and attractive. Worth going is you like Thai food and are in the neighborhood.
