Yep, this place is still wonderful and better than their branch in Atascadero. The garlic pork chops are addictive, although everything else is a good bet. Minus one star for occasional trouble with consistency and the excessive times they are closed (verify that they're open before driving there).

I especially love this place on a rainy evening (and we've had a few lately, thankfully!). The basil tofu is outstanding and a "do not miss". Even if you don't usually care for tofu - you will love this dish. Also love the pahd kee-mow, sweet potato (yum!!!). Service is good but they are usually busy and have a thriving... More

Came to Thai-Rrific for a family dinner. We had Pad Su Ew, shrimp fried rice, vegetables in sauce, sweet and sour soup, and a fish dish. The food was really delicious, but the serving were so small. So, if you are looking for a family style setting then this is not your place.

I was in town on business and was hungry after getting off work. I was craving Thai food and I accidentally discovered this gem via my car GPS. I went in and was seated by the server; he was nice and courteous throughout my dinner, which is always a plus. I had their Chicken Fried Rice and a Thai Iced... More

The restaurant can be a little cramped inside when it gets busy but the food is really good. Especially the curry. Reasonably priced and very good service. Definitely one of the better Thai restaurants in town!

I used to eat here often when I worked at the Park Restaurant as catering chef. Maegen loved this place & would order carry-out when we had a busy event to prepare for. Glad to see the quality is still the same, service is great, and the Laab still the best, ever!

My 91 year-old father and I went to dinner. He had no idea what to order, so I selected a couple of entrées and some tea. while we were waiting for the items we ordered, an appetizer was brought which was excellent. Shortly after we finished the appetizer, our entrées were served. They were pleasantly seasoned and were delivered hot.... More

Went here for dinner. Very nice atmosphere. They have their own parking, so that is not an issue. Prices are reasonable. Quantities vary. I had the pad see yu, which was very good, but the portion was not large. My friend had a chicken soup with noodles, hard boiled egg, tofu and bok choi that was not spicy, but it... More
