We just moved to the neighborhood (North Bernal Heights) and Pad Thai was our first dinner out. We were very impressed by the food and will most certainly return and order for delivery! The restaurant is not much to look at from the outside, but the inside has pleasant, typical Thai restaurant decor. The one area for improvement was the speed of service--it was really slow! It took us a long time to get drinks, although after that the rate of service was pretty good with the soup and food. There were only 4 other tables in the restaurant, but supposedly, the waitress said, they were filling phone orders. We started with Tom Khar Gai soup, which was delicious. It had a strong citrus flavor that went well with the coconut and spice. Our vegetarian entree, Pra Ram Long Song Pak (veggies with peanut sauce and tofu) was excellent; the vegetables were done to a crisp tender and included a nice variety. The star of the meal was the Beef Panang Curry. Their version has less sauce (which is more traditional according to the waitress), but is thicker and richer. The meat seemed like a high grade as well. They offer white or brown rice--a nice touch! The prices for this quality of food is quite a find. We'll be back!
