Good food very large portions, good service. Don't go there if you're looking for a fancy place to eat.

A non-descript restaurant, ‘hole in the wall’ is appropriate with simple very good Thai food. The Larb Salad was great, pumpkin curry full of flavor. The Red Curry without coconut milk was flavorful with some ‘bite’. Good Thai beer, good service and reasonable prices.

My husband & I had a very delicious dinner. We ordered five items selected randomly. That was almost more than we could eat, and we are hearty eaters! Food was served quickly. Service was very efficient and friendly. I especially liked the hot/sour seafood soup...More
