    We loved the flavors and tastes of our food. We ordered the Massamun Curry with Chicken, Chicken Satay and a Vegetable dish. The curry flavor was unlike any we've had at any other Thai restaurants and that made us instant fans. Chicken Satay was tender and easy to remove from the stick. Hate when you have to fight to remove chicken from the stick. Service was fast and efficient. Staff was very attentive. We will be returning.

    Great to be back for safe dining with good Thai food, service and atmosphere. The central location in downtown PS and parking lot in the back makes getting there easy. They always provide large portions of yummy Thai food to share with others so we can try many of their delicious dishes. The place is large for groups and social distancing but I always make a reservations to avoid waiting because it's popular.

    Nice decor Very popular in the tourist area. Reservations recommended. Limited patio seating. The food is tasty and well priced. They appear to want to turn over the tables quickly, so don’t expect to dawdle over your food.

    After several previous visits we were disappointed. Food lacked rich flavor which one expects in Thai restaurant. Only 3 shrimp with pineapple rice dish in spite of high price. Computer system went down with no backup plan in place to pay for meal with credit card. Service was good.

    Server did not bring our drinks. Was reminded once however; were never delivered. Ordered beverages with dinner however, did not show up yet, it was on our bill. Server corrected the bill. Overall service was above average. We'll still patronize due to the excellent quality of the dishes. Need to work on server attentiveness.

    The food was good this night as it can vary greatly... has been inconsistent in the last year, seems good now. Waiter was good but fell apart when food was delivered, hadn’t picked up previous dishes, no plates, etc confusion! Otherwise pleasant experience.

    No complaints about food OR service. What WAS annoying was how the wait staff hovered by our table to get us to pay and leave. It WAS busy that night but it made the 4 of us feel rushed.

    Excellent food and service (by the waiter... the food runner pretty much ignored questions or requests). Again, we ordered the extraordinary chicken coconut milk soup - the hot pot which was more than enough for the five of us. The sampler appetizer was exceptional and more than enough to serve as an entree course. Everyone praised their entrees: Mongolian Beef, Yellow Curry, etc. and the premium brand cocktails were surprisingly inexpensive. This was our fifth visit in the last year.
