From the astonishingly high quality art on the walls to the sassy owner, this place is always a joy to visit. It has a fair to good lunch special menu but its dinner specials are wonderful. This is considered to be the most authentic Thai...More

We were staying at a hotel down the road and just started walking and found this gem. Friendly and quick service as we were a sit down group of 9 people including 5 children. Everyone really enjoyed their meals except there were a few high-ups...More

I love Pho. I will unabashedly state that I search it out in every country and city I visit, usually with disappointing results. And the thought of Pho in a Thai restaurant was already unnerving. However, it was across the street from my hotel, I...More

Friendly staff, willing to adjust 'heat' in any dish. As of this date (4/4/15), they do not serve alcoholic beverages, but I believe this is temporary. We started with a spring roll with peanut sauce (cut into 6 pieces - plenty for 3 to share)...More

My wife, my sister, and I had lunch at this Thai restaurant that advertises itself as having won awards as the best Thai restaurant in Santa Cruz. Since the source or date of that statement was not given, I'd suggest taking it with a grain...More

I was surprised at the good reviews. The food was mediocre at best. They were out of items we ordered. I was really surprised to see a reviewer rave about the coconut soup. I had it and found it to be a bowl of hot...More

I'll start by admitting I am not a lover of Thai food but the friends who dined with me enjoy Thai food and spices. I had the pineapple fried rice with cashews which was very good! Probably not authentic but good. The 'pirate' noodles was...More
