if you know authentic thai flavours, this is the worst, very expensive with small servings, not worth trying. we ordered seafood combination, fish, beef , duck and chicken dishes and all came out with limited meat and lots of vegetables , you will think you ordered all vegetarian dishes!!! i feel sorry for the other thai restaurants in the area...

this place is wonderful and gives great portions! the spicy fried rice and yellow curry are our favorites, just make sure you ask for extra rice for the curry. the staff is very friendly and accommodating if you ask them to add something or leave something out. I always recommend this place to tourists i run into on the street... More

Love the lunch specials that come with an entree, rice, salad and soup for $8. The Param is a favorite.

When we first got there it was not impressive looking outside or inside. In fact it looked a little run down inside with not much to offer for inspiration. It looks like it is run by a family although I could be wrong. This still did not deter us or turn us off. We were seated and the accommodations were... More

Nice menu with a lot of choices. Good, friendly service. Restaurant atmosphere is not fancy but the food quality far exceeds what you would expect in a simple place like this

Ordered the Pad See Ew and the Pad Thai. Both tasted pretty good. Nothing amazing, but at least it wasn't bad. It's a good alternative when Thai Boat is closed for their annual trip to Thailand, honestly.

We always enjoy good Thai food, which this place definitely provides. This is your typical hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant, so don’t expect fancy or trendy atmosphere. Great menu options, with great vegetarian options for just about everything (I like that they offer both tofu and mock duck). Very good service. If we ever get to come back to downtown SLO,... More

Terrible. First of all, it's more Chinese than Thai. Most of the Thai restaurants in SLO close on Sunday, leaving the desperate masses Thai Classic. The Tom Yum Soup: the chicken tasted like it was leftover from the day before and recoked Its a good thing it came steaming hot in the pot because we needed to let it be... More
