This is my cousin's favorite Thai restaurant in Dallas and so I figured we'd give it a try. It was pretty good. This was good fast thai food, there wasn't anything spectacular about the dishes we tried but it also wasn't bad. If I was in the area and wanted a quick meal, I would definitely stop here for a bite to eat. We had the Phat Ke Mao, Khao Phat, Og Phat Thai, Panang Red Curry, Tom Kha Gai Soup, grilled beef and pork meatballs and the cucumber mint water. My favorite was the Phat Ke Mao, the wide noodles were tasty and not over done, my only complaint is that the beef flavor was quite strong. The service was great, everyone was really friendly. They offer a little buffet of different sauces to dip or put on your meals by the beverage station. When you walk in, the menu is on the wall, you order your food at the register, seat yourself and they call you up to get your food. There is a small parking lot, free parking.
The food is delicious (I love the Pad Thai) and the price is fair for how much you get. However, I don't really like the wait staff except one older man that's nice. The older woman just does the bare minimum of her job. One time I asked for extra tofu because I love it & she said "it has enough." I was willing to pay extra for more tofu. Then the younger man is the same. He just doing his job; we weren't greeted when we walked in. Then when I asked for a to-go plate he said "really? She's (referring to my friend) almost finished." Then Tippy came & told us not to order any of the levels. She was upset that we said it was too spicy. I'd been coming for months & never has LEVEL 1 been so spicy. I love the food; not so much the staff.
This is a great little find in the north Dallas area. If you are north of the Great Divide (LBJ Fwy) don't let the construction keep you from trying it. It is really easy to navigate through the turns. The Pad Thai is about the best. The Pad Kee Mao and Pad Si Ewe are very flavorful. You can't go wrong with the Red or yellow curries. You are served by the family and they get to know you fast and make sure you are even eating it right. Tippy and her mother have made sure that I eat the Pad Thai like it is supposed to be eaten - I forget to put the lime juice on it. After a couple of visits, it is like you are walking into Cheers. Everything I have had is very good, try the coconut ice cream on sticky rice for a dessert.
