“***HIDDEN THAI GEM***”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

If you are looking for Thai in Brooklyn, if you need it delivered, if you want it at an exceptional price, if you want to have great flavors, than this is the place for you! You essentially CANNOT sit in this restaurant it is a hole in the side of a building, and it manufactures some amazing thai. The menu was expansive, like I have rarely seen anywhere in the world. The prices were shockingly low. The food quality was good, the flavor profiles were amazing, my taste buds were dancing around my tonsils. This place is amazing, and it is essentially take out or delivery. You will want to spend much time finding the right dish or dishes for you. They have some "spicy" that you can get extra spicy. They also have dishes you can order that say spicy, and have some spice, but if you love the flavor of spices, but cannot stand the heat they have some great dishes for you. They only take cash, leave your AmEx at home, but if you bring a discerning palate, and cash, you will leave with a full stomach, and a general sense of satisfaction, amazement and happiness. It is a wonderful competitor in the Brooklyn food market.

“Great Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

After all the Asian Fusion restaurants claiming they serve Thai food, this is the first true Thai restaurant that I have encountered in Brooklyn. I used to travel to the outskirts of Queens for my Thai fix, but happily I have found a small, friendly, well run establishment much closer to home. It is a small restaurant (perhaps it could hold 24) and it is is a strange location, but well worth the trip. Reasonably priced with adequate portions.

“Darn Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

skeptical at first trying it because of the neighborhood, but ordered the Drunken Man noodles and it was pretty darn great. Forget local chinese, this thai place is the way to go.

Talking tables for two or maybe two parties of two. Intriguing menu and very tasty with the sweet/sour/spicy combinations satisfying. But really a take out joint with open kitchen that makes you think the cooking is just for you.
