This was a pleasant surprise. The menu was large and varied, and for many dishes you could choose spice level. I asked for 4 (out of possible 5) and it was genuinely hot but not to the extent that killed other flavors. Everything was fresh...and very well prepared. A much more authentic experience than I expected.More

One might consider this a dive Thai place. The food was very good albeit a bit pricey. For a generous portion of Chicken Satay, Spicy Tofu Curry , and Thai tea, the meal was $32. The interior is worn and the restrooms were questionable. I...walked away full and satisfied after a good meal prepared and served by family members.More

Casual restaurant attached to the Colonial Inn. We were taken aback by the plain exterior and empty parking lot at 5:30 on a Saturday. The haphazard interior didn’t improve our first impression. The chairs are all covered with very wrinkled leather-like chair covers. Shorts and...these things do not mesh. Nothing against chair covers but they should at least fit. Our waitress was an elderly woman with a not-so-good grasp of the English language. We had a difficult time getting answers to our questions. We ordered various beverages including one beer. For some reason, she brought two beers. We tried, to no avail, to explain that we only ordered one. And we did get charged for the extra “no we didn’t order it” beer. This is the most expensive Thai restaurant we’ve ever visited. $130 for four meals and one, no two, beers. We just ordered entrees, no appetizers or desserts. On the bright side, the food was, overall, very good. The serving sizes are more than adequate. We had the Panang chicken (which is not on the menu but they’ll make it), the Red Curry shrimp with extra shrimp (which they charge a pretty penny for), the Mango Salmon and the Steak Teriyaki (on the menu offers brown rice which they don’t have). No complaints on either of the curries they were very tasty. The salmon tasted fine but it was a very thin piece of fish. My spouse asked for the salmon to be cooked medium rare but there’s no way they could cook it other than well done. My sister ordered the steak which came in very large, thick strips. It was disappointing. It was mostly gristle and fat with very little meaty flavor. Waste of money on this one. This is a hard one to rate for sure. It’s overpriced but the food (with a couple exceptions) is pretty decent. I just don’t know...More

Good food, good location near Acadia. One waitress was by herself and did an excellent job with a difficult task of serving all the tables, although her English was a little limited.

When we pulled up and the restaurant was connected to a hotel I was skeptical. The decor was a little tired but the food was excellent! Very fresh, tasty vegetables, tofu cooked perfectly, yellow chicken curry with pineapple was delicious. A yummy surprise!

Unfortunately the best thing we had was the sauce that came with the spring rolls. Our entrees, which were suppose to be spicy, were the blandest thai food we've tasted. The "sauce" they were in was barely a broth. It was edible, but not enjoyable.

Nice little Thai American place. Great flavors and not afraid to spice it up when you ask for it. The decor is in need of some updating as the restaurant as such lacks character.

Seafood red curry was very good. Crab rangoons i woudn't order from them again. Using the menu on their fb page, i chose and placed my order. What a surprise when i went to pick it up, that i was overcharge for the red curry,...AND it was still 20% HIGHER than the menu pricing on their fb page. We got into a discussion about it and the man said it was because prices had gone up 2 years ago, and he showed me their printed dining room menu. I suggested they update the advertised pricing on their fb page. That's either dishonest or incompetent. either way, i won't be back.More

I'm not sure if they had a bad night or if the chef was out on a rainy Tuesday night, but this was the worst Thai food my wife and I remember having. The takeout service was fine, and the order was packed up and...ready for pick up upon arrival. But, the food was not flavorful or adequately spiced. Their spring rolls were good. However, the pad thai and Medley of Love (a house specialty dish with beef, chicken, and shrimp in an oyster sauce) were very bland. My wife also disliked the mango sticky race dessert, and threw it out after a few spoonfuls. It's possible they just had a bad night, as other people seemed to have reviewed this restaurant very favorably, but we have no intention of returning.More

I’m a big fan of Thai food. The food and service was good. If you’re burnt out on lobster rolls and craving pad thai in middle of Maine this place is not too bad.
