    Great Thai Food. The Medium Spice is enough.

    Very high quality food. Great service. Very clean. Great wait staff. Expect a wait time and slightly cramped atmosphere on weekday lunches but that is because it is so good.

    Good food, not the best Thai I've had, but, not bad in comparison. Service dining in was bad around lunch time when it wasn't "overly busy"... carry out may be the way to go.

    Food is definitely on the spicy side. Play it safe if you don't like hot food.

    Ordered the seafood platter. Was able to fish two shrimp and two tiny scallops. "crab" is actually surimi.

    BUSY!!!! Espcially at lunch time! Well worth the wait if you run into one. Comfortable, contemporary, fresh food. Pad Thai and spring rolls to die for! Carry out is convienant .

    Beware the hot... I really like spicy foods, but thui was painfully so. I recommend getting the medium and spicing it up w chilly sauce as needed.

    Their Fresh Rolls are the best and the evenings are nice and quiet here. Portions are pretty big also, so their is always enough for lunch the next day.

    This is the best Thai Restaurant in Downtown Detroit. Evenings are very slow...Best time to go there is in the evening.
