Came with friends and had the best time! Delicious Thai fusion menu with so many vegan options! Almost anything on the menu can be made vegan. Wonderful flavor, great atmosphere, the most friendly and helpful staff. The tempura green bean app was amazing. Def my...favorite. Don't miss out on this little gem of a restaurant! My go to place for sure.More

This has been one of our favorite places since it opened a few years ago. We tried VALIANTLY to eat here 4 times over the past 6 days. The first time the ordering system was down. People were having lunch but they wouldn’t take additional...customers. Seems like there should have been an easy workaround to keep customers happy and the money coming in. The second time we arrived at noon and the restaurant didn’t open until 12:30 p.m. This is high season and it doesn’t open until 12:30 p.m., not even for drinks until the kitchen opens. The third time the hours said it should have been open but it was not. The fourth time is on us. We tried for lunch on a week day, and came after we struck out arriving at 12:00 (#2 attempt) on the weekend but they do not serve lunch on weekdays. We remember the food being very good and are fans of the owners who have dazzled us first as mgrs at PorQueNo before opening up Mono Congo and Phat Noodle. We are also big fans of their prepared soups and other foods and for keeping our friends fed with good food during COVID. We respectfully request a review of hours and proceedures by the owners and mgrs. It’s a darling concept with really good food and we hope things change before our next trip to Dominical!More

The food and drinks were amazing. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend a try. It was one of the menus where everything looked good and it was hard to decide what to order.

This was the blandest Thai Food all four of us ever had. The Bani MI was so soggy and inedible from a sauce poured on the plate. Yellow curry no flavor. Pad Thai had little to no sauce giving it zero flavor. Waitress didn't seem...to be in a good mood from the start. This was overpriced also. Will not return and don't recommend.More

Great for Coeliacs. 3 out of the 5 of us are Coeliacs and if you let the waiters know that you are Coeliac and are actually allergic to gluten rather than just gluten intolerant, they have special gluten free soy sauce etc to use in...the cooking of your meal and will take care to avoid cross contamination. Food was delicious too and we went back for all 3 of our nights in Dominical. One of us had got ill earlier in the holiday through cross contamination with Costa Rican food, so this was a joyous relief! Waiters couldn't be more helpful too.More

I ate here several years ago and found the food to be boring - and it all tasted alike. This time, however, everything we ate was fresh and tasty. It was nice to have something so good that was not Tico food. The restaurant is...quite attractive, and we were really glad we tried it again.More

So like almost every restaurant in Costa Rica you sit outside, nothing special about that. We ordered 4 different "Thai" dishes and we all walked away from the food on our plates. It's terrible "Thai" food. To be fair we have travelled to Thailand so...our bar is not low. However we were shocked that not one of our very different dishes scored above poor as Thai food goes. Service was just fine with friendly staff and decent place to sit and hopefully enjoy a meal. They did take a fairly long time to get food out on a night that was not particularly busy compared to most other restaurants in Dominical. In defense of Phat Noodle, our local hosts did say it was okay Thai food, but best available in Dominical...looking back Ouch!!More
