    Have some moderately spicy soup and pair with Jasmine tea at dinner to feel awesome afterward.

    Awesome cash-only Thai joint. Put your name on the list (legal pad next to the door), wait a while, then enjoy some of the best Thai food ever.

    I'm really in no position to rate this establishment's food since I was never served. I sat there for 10 minutes and none of the staff attended my table to see if I wanted to order. Will not be back!!

    The fragrant star anise and cinnamon-powered steam from a bowl of boat noodles naturally elicits a Pavlovian response. Read more

    The best Thai in Thai square. Pork jerky, morning glory, green mango salad and a fried fish. Oh might as well have a Tom kha gha chicken soup also.

    The stewed pork leg, pad prik king (chicken preferred), turnip omelet, crispy pork belly with morning glory or broccoli, green papaya salad with raw crab, and stir-fried chicken are all worth getting. Read more

    Really good Penang curry! The Khao Man Gai was OK, really bland soup though.

    The crispy pork was like the Thai version of chicharrones, super tasty especially with the tangy, spicy vinegar sauce.

    The parking lot enforcers are rude dicks. They don't know English and do not tell you anything about the parking lot and its fees and time.

    The classic eatery features an expansive menu with all the familiar plates – curries, soups, and noodles. But for an extra kick, go for the crunchy morning glory or Chinese broccoli. Read more

    I'm a true carnivore, but they have awesome veggie dishes. As others mentioned, the morning glory dish rocks, but the turnip omelette is also amazing! Never been disappointed by any meal here.
