The only thing me and my boyfriend could say during our time here was "Wow". After every bite, total bliss. We got the pork banh mi buns which were so fluffy and seasoned so well. My boyfriend got the Jolly Rancher cocktail and he said it tasted just like a jolly rancher!! I got the Pad Prik and it was perfect blend of spice and sweetness We also got the Pad Woonsen and it tasted great, on top of the Thai crepe!! The Thai crepe was so flaky and the mangos were so sweet 10/10 will def come again! Service was also fast and the outdoor area is so cozy
I heard about this place from a friend and it was a pleasant surprise. The restaurant has a very romantic vibe to it. The service was very good and quick with bringing our orders out. I ordered a cocktail called jolly rancher and it was so good it tasted just like a green jolly rancher. We ordered pork banh mi buns and they were the best buns I've had the bun itself was very soft and the pork was delicious. I got the pad woonsen which I believe is glass noodle dish and my girlfriend got pad prik both were very tasty. I haven't seen these dishes at other Thai restaurants so which I'd say speaks to the authenticity of this restaurant. I really wanted to try the Thai crepes before even coming here which is another Thai dish that I hadn't seen before and we both loved it. This is by far my favorite Thai place and we'll be sure to come back.
The Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles) just werent great they were over cooked, lacked flavor, vegetables and soggy. Ive eaten this dish at hundreds of authentic Thai restaurants on the west coast, and this was candidly one of the least impressive examples. Ill give the restaurant another try, but dont go here expecting to be impressed by this dish. I ordered 4/5 spicy, and it barely made my nose sweat. For some reason, everything also had a subtle gas/charred undertone to it as well. Conclusion: Ive had amazing Thai food for half this price, so it can be done.
Quaint delicious gem minutes from uptown. Staff was super friendly and the basil bourbon smash is to die for!
We came in on a Friday night and was greeted and seated right away. The service was excellent. The food was very good. All the dishes were hot and fresh. I got the Mountain stake and my wife got Lemongrass chicken. We also got spring rolls and sushi as appetizers. The Thai Crepe for desert and the wife said that was her favorite. I will say it was really good. My only complaint was I thought the portion size was kinda small for the price but food had good flavor. I would say a must try if in the area and wanting some Thai food. They do to-go orders if your not wanting to eat in or they have a little outdoor area.
