In the mood for Thai after an art flick at the Colonial Theatre, what a delightful surprise to find this wonderful Thai restaurant. We started with an excellent vegan slaw and thoroughly enjoyed a fresh tasting Penang beef curry and very creative eggplant Thai dish. The decor and staff were spot on. Yep, Phoenixville is very cool.

We have been here about a half-dozen times and have never been disappointed. My wife is vegan and those options (like the Wild Ginger) are delicious! Plus the coconut ice cream presentation is as good as its taste.
We usually see the owner checking out front (service) as well as back in the kitchen. This is becoming one of our favorites. I'm sure we'll get a night when the service is a little slow, but not yet and my guess is that would be exceptional.

We came here for dinner on a Friday night and brought a nice bottle of Pinot to have with our meal. We had the appetizer platter (tulip rolls were outstanding) and I had massaman beef curry for dinner. Ask for extra spice: perfect balance with the peanut sauce. Great place for good food in Phoenixville

I went here with my brother on our birthday. We were a party of 6. The waitress was slow, the food was slow, and 3 of our six orders were not correct. We chose to eat what we were served because we didn't want to wait for it to be made again. We ordered for my wife, who was running late, and 5 minutes later asked to change her order and the waitress said no without even checking with the kitchen.

All off us ordered the lunch special. The chicken satay was tough and chewy, the soup wasn't hot, and the pineapple fried rice had a total of two pieces of pineapple in it. Add that to the fact that my brother ordered chicken and got shrimp in his curry, and I ordered shrimp but got chicken. Although the lunch was only 12, which is not too much, We won't be returning, and I would not waste your time or money on a trip to this restaurant.

We were first-time visitors in advance of a show at the nearby Colonial Theater, and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dinner we enjoyed. For appetizers, our table selected the Por Pia, the Shrimp Sarong, and the Calamari. Each was paired with an excellent dipping sauce, and we heartily recommend each. Our mains were two duck courses (Tamarind Duck and Chu Chee Duck), and two Wok selections (Evil Jungle Princess and Thai Eggplant). The Wok dishes were good but not spectacular, while the Duck dishes were fabulous. The Chu Chee Duck in particular was a very large portion served with a wonderful creamy, yet mild, Curry sauce. Service also was very attentive and considerate. This is a BYOB, and prices are very reasonable.
