A girlfriend who lives in Pt. Richmond mentioned this Thai restaurant to meet for lunch. It was our second time here and again, it was just fine. The restaurant is on busy San Pablo Ave and parking is not a problem. Easy off and on...More

I've had three bad experiences in a row (2 minor, the last one major). Never coming here again. Apart from anything else, they are rude beyond belief when there's a problem. They have no concept of making an effort to make things right. A month...More

Consistently tasty meals here. If there is a favorite Thai dish that you would like, but don't see it on the menu, just ask. They will probably make it for you. Fresh ingredients cooked well.

Been going here for years and always happy- have never had a bad experience and have tried a lot of the menu throughout the years. Love the green curry and pumpkin curry. Fresh spring rolls also a favorite.

Hadn't been there in a while. A little disappointed this time. Food seemed bland (mussels were tasteless without hot sauce). Previously, wait staff wore Thai outfits; now they're just in basic clothes. Food used to come in attractive metal containers; now just regular dishes. Don't...More
