  • The Pad Thai here is soooo good, and I don't even like Pad Thai! This is the best Thai restaurant in the city!
  • Best Thai restaurant in Nashville!
  • Pad Thai is all had time for passing through Nashville. One thing for sure they met my heat requirement. Have to special ask for above the hottest they offer. The red pepper was Crimson to dark brown.
  • It really is the best Thai food in Nashville -- unassuming and excellent.
  • Pad Thai and Red Curry are both outstanding
  • Ive tried almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed. If you want a light lunch try larb lettuce wraps. Gai Jee is my favorite and the Pad Thai will make you never get it anywhere else.
  • It's green curry tonight! Red is the best but Green is a tight 2nd.
  • Pad kra paw is awesome, but spicy
  • Get in early for dinner; the restaurant's seating capacity is fairly small. Lunch portions are the same as dinner portions, but a bit less expensive-- consider picking up your takeout dinner at lunch.
  • Best Thai food! Try the Curry w/ Fried Rice!
  • Extra parking around back.
  • Try the Massaman Curry
  • Hibiscus honey tea. Delicious.
  • Always ask about the curry special of the day. Panang is my favorite.
  • BEST Thai food in the city!
  • Cozy place with great food. The dumplings were great and dont miss out on the pad Thai. Next time Im leaving room for dessert
  • Dumplings!
