You just can't get any better Thai food in Houston and this is also one of our favorite Restaurants. Book a Reservation ahead of time because there are not many tables available. All we say is it is Outstanding.

We ordered massaman curry, pad kee Mao, pork appetizer, panang pork, and Tom yum. All were very good, with each person liking one more than the other. Waiter was very polite and attentive.

This is by far the best Thai food in Houston. No one else is in the same category. We have tried almost every dish listed on the menu and several off menu items over about a dozen visits, and Chef Benchawan delivers on every one of them.

Graham gives excellent descriptions of all the food, listen to his recommendations. His enthusiasm and thorough knowledge of the food is a fantastic guide to one of Houston's most incredible food experiences.

This is not Houston's fanciest dining room, but it is by far my favorite. Amazing food, comfortable setting, BYOB, and cool people.

PS - if you're not sure you're ready for Thai spicy, you're not ready. Tread carefully.

Some of the most delicious Thai food I have ever had. We made the trip all the way from the other side of town. My husband is super picky,and when I first visited without him, I knew I had to bring him. We loved it. Don’t skip out on the Pad Thai or the mango sticky rice. We will definitely be back!

First timers and a little hesitant from the outside look of this place but once we walked in we felt much more at ease. The place is small so expect limited seating and full attention from server/owner. It was a great experience!
We tried a little bit of everything and converted a non curry to curry lover!
The chicken and noodles and pad Thai didn’t not disappoint. The basil stir fry was excellent… everything was fresh and elevated than your typical Thai food joint.

This is Authentic Thai Food at its best, and honestly doesn't get any better than this.
There is total care and love in all aspects of what they do at this very small seating BYOB Restaurant and is well worth the drive. You must make a reservation or you probably will only be able to get take out, but even then it would be worth doing and sitting in your car having some wonderful food. We always ask ourselves the same Question every time we go to a Restaurant, Would you go back? Tomorrow won't be soon enough.

I never write reviews, but this place is absolutely deserving of one. Starting off you the staff was on top of their game, extremely knowledgeable about the Thai cuisine and culture. Went with a special appetizer dish as well as spring rolls and dumplings. Would highly recommend the dumplings. We followed with the pork shoulder(out of this world) and Thai fried rice with Thai spice(be ready for full flavor with strong kick of spicy). Absolutely a 10 out of 10 experience, will be returning as fast as possible. Btw the price are great and it’s byob!

this east end spot consistently delivers authentic Thai food. Casual feel for the restaurant is bolstered by the welcoming owner and staff. Menu items and specials have never disappointed in numerous visits. Can't miss with the spring rolls and pork belly. Weekend specials are usually norther Thai influenced, rarely seen at other Thai spots and not to be missed. BYOB.

Hidden gem on the east side! Outstanding, authentic Thai food by people who are passionate about what they do and it's reflected in the comida. I'm no Thai expert by any means but it's apparent that the owners Graham and his chef/wife definitely are experts. It's worth the drive when you want a casual night out but but don't want to sacrifice quality, similar to Tiny Champions experience. It's BYOB so BYOB.

Simply the best Thai in the city. Fresh, fragrant and delicious. While we have ordered takeout from here during the pandemic, it was great to experience these amazing Thai dishes straight from the kitchen to our table. Chexk out the green curry, chive pancakes and be sure to order one of their specials of the day.
