Sorry to sound snobby but I didn't come to the Midwest expecting to find great Thai food! I was very pleasantly surprised. My dining companions had been here before on business a few years ago and they said it was great then, and was great this time too. The ambience and decor is lovely - simple and very little of...

I love this restaurant for dates, business and anything in between. The staff is wonderful and the food always pleases. My tip is to go for lunch: the prices are much lower and the food is just as amazing.

I have never had a bad meal here, the food is fresh and flavorful. Not the best wine selection but it is adequate.

Took me forever to make a choice, given the range of exciting dishes on this menu. I ended up with the Pacific Medley (seafood medley) and it was superb. I really wanted to go back a couple more times to explore other dishes that sounded wonderful. We had great service; the ambiance is quite nice. We lived in Lincoln 20... More

The Tom Kha soup was absolutely horrendous and the spring rolls sub par. Lincoln deserves better Thai food. Avoid the same mistake of believing the good reviews and skip this restaurant!

My friends had drunken noodles which were excellent. I had the blue crab with rice, very good except WAY too much rice, like 2x too much. Drinks took very long time to receive each time & they weren't that busy. Been to Thailand several times, not sure I call this real authentic Thai food, but it's very good for here.

This is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. My boyfriend always gets the Crying Tiger (and always loves it) and I tried the Blue Crab Fried Rice (delicious!) We love the atmosphere, the food is always good, and the service is fine. I also recommend Butter Chicken and the yellow curry.
