Great place, slightly out of the way, but SO very worth it! Staff was friendly and great about explaining the dishes. We started with egg rolls, which were the best I have ever had. I had the Pad Thai that was fantastic. My husband had sweet and sour chicken. He was given the choice of hot. "American hot or Thai... More

Take your time while at this little gem because Thai culture and history is all around for you to absorb. Ask a question or two from the friendly owner while enjoying the very good Thai food made by a delightful cook. I didn't stop there for american food but neither would i stop at an american place for thai? Broaden... More

Road trips through Colorado often take us through Poncha Springs and we are happy to be able to eat good food that is reasonably priced. Tea was served to us immediately upon arrival (free of charge) and the Thai plates are fairly priced with nice-sized portions.

While I can't speak to the American good they serve I can say that the Thai food is excellent. Perfect spice level, very fast service, friendly staff, and perfect stop on your way to Denver from the Southwest. We'll stop again.

I love little, quality, small establishments like this with lots of character and lots of heart put into the product. Owners very, very nice and really seem to care that you're happy with the food. I don't know that it was the most outstanding Tom Ka soup or green curry we've ever tried, but it was very good with quality... More

As a stop on a long road trip, this was a bit of a desperation measure. The pad thai was decent, with a fair number of shrimp and a flavorful sauce. A standard American selection was, unfortunately, inedible: fried fish was suspiciously gooey, with a thick and unappetizing batter. The owner apologized and claimed that her purveyor gave her inferior... More

Such a surprise to find a good Thai restaurant in Poncha Springs! Crab Rangoon was warm & crispy. Great fresh veggies! Very pleasant Thai ladies serving and cooking. Decorated very nicely with fans from Thailand.

Not a good visit, barely ate half the food, and overpriced. $7.00 for a shake & $6.25 for 6 stored bought frozen chicken nuggets. Burgers didn't even taste like hamburger meat. Very rude & hateful staff. Will never stop here again & I suggest you don't either.
