The food is always great. The service is always good. It is one of the few places that every dining experience is always a good one. Their vegetable soup and pineapple fried rice are phenomenal.

I've been coming here since 2006 and it's the best Thai food I've had. Much better than the San Antonio Thai Taste.

Stopped in with the kids. Do wish they had a kid size portions. My red curry was great and the fried rice was too. The veggie noodles were a bit bland. Would go back
