This small, friendly Thai restaurant does a good job. The service is friendly--though could use more staff on a busy night--and the food is quite good. Nice enough dining room and the menu is quite complete. Small, well done, and reliable.

Stumbled upon this little Thai Restaurant driving along Main. Was one of two places with all tables full so we decided to wait for a table. The food was great. I ordered the spicy beef salad and my wife got the vegetable mix. Both were...More

On a very busy evening we were seated with just a short wait. The server was helpful. We loved the corn cakes appetizer. The entries were quite generous. Consider three for four people. But one dish can't serve two. So count on some take home....More
