I have been about 5 times various years to this restaurant.The food was bland and as tasteless as I have ever had Thai food ..The restaurant was exceptional in the past ,but is typical of a restaurant that has lost sight of what they did well in the past..We tipped the waitress well though she was a completely clueless child.We were never asked how hot we wanted the food?This restaurant is not like it was in the past..

Food was average (we may be Thai spoiled as we have excellent options at home). Service was great. Our waitress was super friendly and accommodating checked in frequently! I honestly was hoping the food was better. We had the seafood stir fry (mediocre), Tom Kha soup (great) and laab chicken salad (unimpressed with the meat selection).

Yellow curry and drunken fried rice were made vegan. Quick service and good quality food.

The restaurant was about 75% full both the times we were there, but service was swift.

We ordered a mock tail - that had lychee and sprite in it; the drink was very mediocre and tasted sprite for the most part.

Always a great meal there. Service can be rather slow for drinks however. Kama’aina 5% discount is kind of a laugh. Will return and enjoy the food for takeout.

We both got sick after eating there, so there was definitely something not good in our food or not good hygiene.

We had a great meal all the dishes were exceptional. Our hand crafted cocktail were delicious. The Curry’s were amazing with fresh ingredients and lots of sauce. This is a great spot with expanded dining area and bar. Being a local it’s my new favorite anytime spot and always great with the girls. See ya there Cheers!

Not as good as a lot of other Thai restaurants I’ve been to. Small portions and not particularly authentic flavors. Rice doesn’t even come with the meal! No variety on hot teas either. Won’t go again. Spent close to $50 and quite disappointed with quality and quantity of food.

It's just a little hard to find and in a mini strip mall, but once you're inside, it's nice and the service is good. We had the salmon and yellow curry and rice. It was exquisite.
