    Food great, really nice place and quiet enough to talk at the table. Cocktails ordered to drink before our meal arrived at the same time as the meal so disappointing! Otherwise good.

    Nice Restaurant I definitely will go back, but the pad se yew didn’t taste authentic it tasted like something you would get in an more American style restaurant versus an authentic Thai restaurant

    I hardly ever leave reviews, but this is one of the best restaurants in Columbia! The food is exceptional: fresh, flavorful, truly delicious. The staff was attentive and quick, the drinks were amazing, the ambiance is great. This may be our new favorite restaurant in the area!

    The best spot to eat in Columbia. A hidden gem and certainly the best Thai food in South Carolina bar none.

    Food wss tasty, but we had dishes that traditionally spicy, and they were not. They offer spices which can be added to step it up, but in my opinion, added spice is not as tasty as cooked in spice. They should consider an option , spicy or not.

    For the money spent, the food was average, not exceptional and the server, although prompt, seemed as if she wasn’t feeling well.
