We stopped for a light lunch of beef tendon pho and tom kha with a pot of jasmine tea. The pho was well layered with flavor and served with the traditional thai basil, pepper, lime and fresh bean sprouts. I had hoped for a few more pieces of tendon as I love the tender gelatinous goodness. The tom kha was... More

I always eat here, the food is amazing and you can't beat lunch for only 6.95...The peanut chicken dishes are some of my favorite!

This restaurant is one of our favorites in Madison WI. We love Thai food and we've never been disappointed here. It's so awesome that we have family bring it back home for us when they're going to Madison. Definitely try it!

We tried the pork egg rolls, pan-fried chicken dumplings, fresh spring rolls with pork and shrimp, chicken panang, and chicken pho. This version of panang was far sweeter than any we have experienced before, but the rest of our food was fantastic! Try the pan-fried dumplings! We'll be back to try the Laotian fare, but will include the spring rolls... More

Delightful neighborhood restaurant with local shops nearby to browse in before or after your meal. This place had a cozy atmosphere. We found the service friendly and the menu was packed full of choices, Thai and Vietnamese. It was hard to decide. Try the Spring Roll Wrap over Vietnamese Egg Roll. Everything we ordered was delicious. Portions provided leftovers to... More

We had to wait over 30 min to get a bowl of pho... 30 MINUTES, LITTERALY! The waiters couldn't care less, they weren't rude but just seemed incompetent. We actually wondered if anyone was managing that place. the food was OK, I guess, but far from being extraordinary.

I had the shrimp pad thai and my husband had the red snapper. Both were absolutely delicious. The lunch started off on a great note with the curried veggie puffs - well-seasoned veggies in a wonton-like crust. It was kind of like a smaller, more delicate samosa with added veggies. The decor is interesting, but not fancy. It was packed... More

Sunday lunch for a first visit. Waitress was very kind and patient. It appeared many presumed locals know what they want quickly and are served quickly. I needed more time to try to make sense of three types cuisines that are really quite distinct but the waitress was very helpful at pointing out what we were looking for and how... More

I love this restaurant. The food is so flavorful and delicious! My husband and I come here every week for our date night dinner. We know the menu very well and have a whole bunch of dishes we love. The dish that caught my attention the first time I went was the pan fried chicken dumplings. They are amazing and... More
