    Had the pad Thai and the drunken noodles. Both were good. Place is pretty reasonably priced and they give you pretty large portions. Place is small, but many folks seemed to be there for takeout.

    If ordering take out over the phone, always add an extra 15 minutes to their preparation estimate so you don't have to stand outside, lean against a tree, and write Foursquare tips while you wait.

    Favorite special is the ginger chicken, light and delicious flavors. Crab rangoon, Pad Sew Ee, and any curry are my other favorites. Go there at least once a week. Owner, Paul, is a great guy!

    A great place with delicious food! I love it. But it's more for take away, because the place is small and to many people. We didn't fined a free table.

    Try the Pad Ped Pork - Great dish... Cooked at a high temperature as everything was a little charred and I had it extra spicy. 3 tables inside and 3 outside...Well done...

    Everything is bomb. It's a small cozy place that feels like home. And you can pretty much customize anything. Their most popular dish is the drunken noodles.

    I score Thai places by their spiciest chicken yellow curry. This place is solid, and has a great portion:price ratio. Glad it's right up the street!

    Vest Thai place in town, imo.I love the pad Thai, green curry and probably my favorite Thai tea in the state!

    Food was good and inexpensive. The space is small, has a Chinese take-out kind of feel. If I were in the area again I would definitely go again, but I wouldn't want to eat there.

    Panang curry with sticky rice hits the spot!! Ask for fresh chili peppers if you want it extra spicy!

    The scale is no spice, mild, medium, and hot. So it's more of a (0)-3 than a 1-10. Don't go ordering a 3 thinking you're ordering mild...!

    All noodle dishes are delicious- authentic with a wok char on them. Pad See Ew with a medium spice (5) is perfect!
