There is something for everyone on their menu. The kids loved the Thai wonton soup and pineapple fried rice. The adults had spicy curries, duck and garlic salmon. The orange chicken and fresh spring rolls are excellent! Dishes to share and plenty to take home.

While I was trying to get used to American food, this Thai restaurant is my life vest. Food is very closed to true Thai food. The place is clean and cozy. And nothing to complain about friendly staff with American service.
