    Best Thai in city!! Papaya salad, morning glory and larb are amazing. But the specialties take this place over the top... get the coconut durian sticky rice dessert!

    Spent a month in Thailand eating street food. This place hit the spot. It's Northern Thai and their spice levels are real Thai too: medium is American hot (same as in Thailand). Noms!

    Really good, legit Thai food. No joke on the spice/heat!

    Jason Schulweis · July 3, 2015

  • Kay N.

    Som tum Thai and duck larb- authentic and some of the best in the city. Music selection can be improved.

    Kim Tran · November 21, 2014

    Pla Goong - steamed shrimp salad with Thai herb and chili lime dressing - Get this bouquet of flavors and spice! Delicious.

    What's Good Here · September 26, 2014
  • Jean-Paul T.

    Get the Kana Moo Krob, Pad Ped Moo Krob, and Larb Kai.

    Jean-Paul Tremblay · September 7, 2014
  • Jasmine M.

    Fried egg salad, faux duck curry are both craveworthy. They'll kick up the spice for real on som tom if you can handle it.

    Jasmine Moy · September 5, 2014
  • Sandra R.

    If you're looking for pad thai, you're out of luck. This place offers up a bunch of authentic Thai dishes with spice levels that'll knock your socks off. The larb is amazing.

    Sandra Rubinchik · September 1, 2014
  • jon f.

    Get the Chu Chee Red Snapper - delicious.

    What's Good Here · August 7, 2014
  • What's Good Here

    This is flavorful Northern Thai cuisine & not your typical curry shop. Get the Kra Pao Moo Krob (crispy pork, basil leaf, white onions, oyster sauce served over white rice) and morning glory as a side

    What's Good Here · August 7, 2014
  • Village Voice

    Pla goong, or steamed shrimp with lashings of chiles, lemongrass, and herbs, is a must-order, as are the delicious larbs, a/k/a ground meat salads (try the duck or catfish), and som tum papaya salads. Read more
