I really liked the red curry dish I ordered but the food was very spicy for what I asked for, so beware. The restaurant was very clean and the service was good.

This restaurant is located across from Alderwood Mall. Inside the restaurant is relatively clean. From some of the online reviews, most order the Pad Thai and Chicken Satay. The taste of both dishes were very good. we ordered chicken Pad Thai - there was a decent amount of chicken. There was no tofu however in the Pad Thai. The nuts... More

Food was good but service was average. Only one person working and never cleared our dishes when we were through eating and the restaurant was cold. But since we arrived just when they opened perhaps there hadn't been time for it to get warm.

This is some of the best Thai Food I've ever eaten! It's the kind of quality that will ruin the other places for you. The flavor of their food is utterly fantastic, I simply can't pick a favorite dish. Their crab delight is made with real crab, not imitation.

Got takeout and the owner went on about how his place is too authentic to serve summer/fresh rolls. Then went home to eat his food. Flavors were pretty good, then I got a mouth full of plastic. Like a plastic food covering, rather large piece, like the size of my hand. Gross - plus makes me think he just heated... More

Tasty Thai. We had the Chili Thai Chicken and aroma ginger chicken and both were great. Casual with very affordable options

Their location is across the street from the Alderwood Mall. This Thai place has a gluten free menu with a lot of options. I had the Pad See Ew which was flavorful and with the prawns was a perfect choice. Their service was prompt and our meals were prepared fresh. The only down side we noted was the price/serving size... More

Stopped by since I happened to be shopping nearby. Friendly atmosphere, super tiny inside, food was ok, but did not wow me. Very simple decor, and extremely clean. Service was quick and waitstaff attentive. Portion size was decent for the price. Like I said, food was ok, but I would not go out of my way to come back. Nothing... More

There were 3 servers and 3 empty tables (not reserved) when we arrived. We were asked to wait. After 10 minutes, another group came they were told that there will be another 10 minutes wait. Can't comment on the quality of food but service was very poor.
