“Tastiest Asia food we have had for a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

We dined here in an effort to get away from the usual tourist food, steaks and burgers. It was great. Very nice hot crispy spring rolls and the spicy beef certainly cleared my sinuses. We loved it. The waiter said we could have a choice of mild, medium, hot and Thai hot. We chose hot and it was but very tasty. Also had garlic pepper chicken - again a very good dish. Service was prompt with both drinks and meals and it was very good value. I would recommend this restaurant. Some of the best Asian food we have had in the US.

“Pleasant dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

My wife and I had a pleasant dinner after my afternoon fly fishing in RMNP. We were greeted promptly and pleasantly. The server explained in detail after we asked about degree of spiciness of items we were selecting and how they could further adjust the degree of "heat" if necessary.

I had a green curry with chicken and rice and my wife had BBQ shrimp with crispy spring rolls and vermicelli with vegetables. The portions were generous-sized.

Pricing was reasonable. Service was very good.

We would return again if we come back to Estes Park.

“Great service but food is not the Thai I know of”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

We are very familiar with Thai food and recently spent a month travelling in Thailand but the red curry we had in this restaurant was not the red curry we are familiar with. It's a variation of the red curry that's for sure. It had some extra ingredients in it that gave it a bizarre or unusual taste. It wasn't awfully by any means but just very different.
Tom Yum Koon was nice but a bit too warty for my liking.
Satay sauce had no peanuts in and was cold. It just seemed as if they mixed coconut milk with red curry sauce at the last minute it was more like soup than sauce.
The garlic chicken (as it reads on the menu) but I had it with beef was not garlicky at all and neither of us was sure if the meat was beef.
Overall we left the place a bit disappointed. Though, the service was great and the prices are very reasonable.
