  • The Crispy Caramelized Pork Belly is a meal, not an "appetizer"and also the best plate $9 can buy. The ordering system is awkward to two separate lines from two separate entrances.
  • Beef pad see iew, best so far. A good quality meal :)
  • Tom yam kung. The best.
  • BBQ half chicken is killer.
  • You don't have to go by the menu. You can order Thai rice with shrimp or pad Thai with chicken if you feel like it.
  • Overpriced for the type of food, but priced appropriately for the neighborhood. The $12 credit card minimum still offends me, though.
  • Pad See Iew is my favorite. It's fresh flat noodles, beef, flat rice noodles, egg, chinese broccoli and chili garlic.
  • Pho Bo, BBQ Steak Vermicelli Noodles, Meatball Soup, Thai Chicken Fried Rice.
  • The smells here are making me drool! Can't wait to try it
  • Good for takeout.. but food is not that great
  • This place is amazing plain and simple. Tried the beef pad see and WOW. Beef was marinated so well and bursting with flavors.
  • Chicken fried rice, shrimp pad Thai and their dumpling soup are delicious! Love the music
  • thai food $9-12
  • Tilapia in spicy sauce is excellent
  • massamun chicken is good!
  • Good basil chicken and Thai beef salad, and the fresh shrimp rolls are great. Just don't go/order on Sundays. The food isn't fresh.
  • Seriously, how do you manage to burn the egg in fried rice?
  • so expensive!
  • Rich but too pricey.
  • Chef Preyanet Pongsuwan uses shredded green papaya instead of noodles for this non-traditional pad Thai.
