From someone who's been to Thailand - I didn't like it at all. The ingredients in the basil fried rice tasted freezer burned, sticky rice not served traditional, not hot, and tasted of low quality, or made a long time ago. I heard them argue with some other customers over their bill, when it was their mistake, and saying some rude stuff about Farangs in Thai. Too many options, fusions, and non authentic additions to the food. Best thing was the bottled Chang beer. Just avoid.

Good place for Thai food. My family has been coming for years! Their Papaya Salad is refreshing and really love the way they do their Pad See Ew. Also tried their Fried Tofu appetizer, which tasted like home.

For those who haven’t been in Thailand many times this is a great place to learn the Thai cuisine.
Super friendly staff, cozy place and quite busy.
I had a quick snack, Spicy shrimp soup, sticky rice and a Thai beef salad.
For my taste, too much sugar being used in the dishes which takes out the zesty and sour flavors for these two classical dishes.

Some comments to the cook..
Yam nua...
-doesn’t normally have red pepper but Thai tomatoes which changes the taste of the dish.
-I missed the grounded roasted rice
-coriander taste was missing and some Thai basil
- lack of spring onions
- lack of lime juice

- no galangal
- no Thai parley
- too little coriander
- no straw mushrooms
- no baby corn
- too sweet, soup is normally really sour and limey

having said this, I spent over 10 years taking cooking classes in Thailand and have developed Thai taste buds...
I imagine the taste has been adjusted to the local flavor. I am certain that more Authentic Thai food would give this place a more outstanding result.

Prices are very descent for US and they have a nice selection of beers.
I would definitely come back, but would tell them to make it more authentic... less sugar, more tangy and spicier.
