    I really liked the curry, it was delicious so was the thai iced tea. We got a stir fry too, it was good but my taste buds preferred the curry. The lady was nice serving us. Food came out in a timely manner. Apparently, they lock their doors until a customer arrives and have been doing that for years because when we arrived well over open time, the door was locked and she told us that.

    Went here today with my grandmother, we had a great time! Restaurant was empty and nicely decorated. The woman serving us was lovely, from other reviews people say she's rude, but to me she was just straight to the point. Our food came out fast, we got the Thai Fried Rice, Chow Mein, and veggie Egg Rolls. All was super delicious! Great vegetarian options too :)

    Service is patchy, so take out is a great option. Kim can be nice when she feels like it, but if often stressed out for whatever reason and very curt with you. I don't think she even realized she is being unprofessional, though. Food used to be superb - so good that I thought it was hands down the best Thai in town. At this last visit, I felt that it was good, but not as good as a few other spots I've been going to lately, including Sweet Basil. Pork Lard - level 7 spicy was not spicy at all. This is a VERY flavorful dish, though, and I've noticed that however hot you ask for, they always tend to come out about the same. It came with rice and cabbage, but the cabbage was cut up quite small, like they just put a handful of their prepped lettuce for stir fry into the dish. It was quite inconvenient to try to make lettuce wraps with these. Pad Kee Mao - level 7 spicy was a good hot. Our Korean trained mouths could handle the heat, but I wouldn't recommend level 7 to newbies. Just right for us though. Shrimp Pad Thai - level 6 - Ordered 2 level 5 spice pad thais and got 1 level 5 and 1 level 6. Though the order was wrong, we decided to be fine with it and thought, how much more spicy could it be? There was a huge difference between the two. Level 5 was pleasant, level 6 was sweat inducing. And the pad Thai was swimming in sauce, which had a nice flavor, but didn't feel like pad Thai. I've had the dish in Thailand. They don't come drenched in sauce like this. Red Curry - forgot what spice level, but it wasn't too spicy, and the curry was delicious! Papaya Salad - a bit more tomato than necessary, but overall nice flavor. ***Just a few things during this visit that made it interesting to say the least. - We were a party of 7 for lunch. When we came in, there was no other customers there. Kim told us we all had to order between 2 dishes of our choice. We weren't sure whether she was kidding, ignored this and went ahead and ordered what we wanted. As she goes into the kitchen with our order, we hear yelling and screaming, and something about taking too long and 2 dishes. Kim comes back out and informs us that the food will take 30 minutes because we ordered so much. But, though the food didn't all come out at the same time, they started coming within 15 minutes, and we all had our food within 20 minutes. - One customer came in while we were placing our order. Kim told her to wait and that it would take about 45 minutes for her to get her food because we were ordering so much food ahead of her. She didn't take her order until about half our dishes came out (the customer seemed fine waiting). - One of our orders was wrong. While ordering one of my friends was pointing to the menu and saying this is what she wanted. Kim refused to look and told my friend, "I know what's in menu. Just tell me." But of course, her order was the wrong one. Friend felt bad and didn't want to return the food, but once Kim realized it was wrong, she took it back and told her she'll get the food she wanted. - while Kim was in the kitchen, I took a few pictures of the interior cuz I thought it was quite unique. She must have seen me in the video cam, and came out yelling from the kitchen and told me to stop taking pictures. I had never been stopped from taking pictures before, and truly confused, asked her why? She looked like she was stuck, and without telling me a reason told me, "just take pictures of your food. Not my store." Well. I had already taken all the pictures I wanted. I am not posting one of the pictures, which is by the cash register. Since the last time I had been there, she had lot more interesting pictures and statues put up. Maybe she felt importable that I was taking a picture of her pictures of gods? In case that's the case, I'm not posting the particular photo. - the other customer got her food well before the 45 minutes, ate and left before we were finished.

    Extremely rude. I ordered take out, and she did not take my name or phone number, and she did not tell me a price. When I went to pick up she didn't confirm what I ordered, only said, "pick up? 30 dollars." I asked her to repeat the price because it sounded a little high, and I had no way of knowing if I was paying for the correct order. She rudely asked why I didn't check prices before I called and flung a menu in front of me to show me prices. I said okay I wasn't sure if it was mine and she continued to ramble on about tax and how I need to look before I call. She firmly handed my credit card to me, said goodnight, and walked away. I found my food in a bag on a table with no direction or confirmation that it was what I ordered. Very poor service, will never be back

    I got a recommendation to try this place from my little brother because his friend loves it. We walked in & were immediately greeted by such a sweet woman who told us to sit wherever we’d like. I ordered the crab Rangoon for an appetizer & they were the freshest crab Rangoon’s I’ve ever eaten. The sauce they were paired with was phenomenal as well. You could just tell everything was homemade/made fresh. My boyfriend ordered the spring rolls which weren’t what he was expecting (he thought they’d be fried) but they were still good. I ordered the volcano chicken which was so tasty & fresh. It smelled amazing once it was put in front of me. My boyfriend’s entree was called chicken peanut sauce, it was sweeter than he thought it would be but still good. I was very happy with both of my dishes & will for sure go back!!! The service was great too!
