Eat elsewhere there are so many better Thai restaurants in the vicinity. We ate here with a large party. The food was mediocre and the service was terribly slow and rude. The staff and managers actually argued and insulted members of my dinner party, despite the large amounts of money spent. The dishes tasted okay but nothing special, but the portions were very TINY. It was as if a they separated one dish into several dishes. We felt cheated. Parking lot is really small, you may have to park on Winchester.

I have to Admit the food here was Good!!! A few things to consider besides the dam roaches that crawl out of the crevices, some of the servers there are jerks, and service was so slow. If you can handle being tossed around with attitude, have a great dinner. I wanted to punch the lights out of the server for being smart when we asked a simple first timers question. Food was spicy, delicious, and great. Pineaplle fried rice was very good.

Not my favorite Thai restaurant in South Bay but the food was decent. My only complaint - parking is a real pain at this restaurant. The parking lot is tiny and is always full. Getting out of the parking lot is very tricky too. On my last visit I had the Drunken Noodle and the Massaman Curry and they were both delicious. The food is on the spicier side. Even medium has quite a kick. I downed my Thai tea in no time. I remember the sticky rice with mango was pretty good but mango wasn't in season. I ordered the green tea sticky rice with mango ice cream instead and was quite happy with it.

Parking is limited, ya gotta move carefully in the parking lot. Each of the 4 times we've had dinner, there's been a wait (good sign). Staff either can't/won't give good estimate of waiting time. Our 2 noodle dishes (Pad Thai and #43- a wholewheat noodle dish w/ asparagus-fresh, basil on a dark soy foundation) were real good. Veggies were fresh, good use of basil, the chicken was mostly breast meat- a well prepped. The mango sticky rice->dessert, was nicely presented. The 1/2 mango was fully ripe and the rice well-textured and laced w/ condensed milk.
OK- now we get to the service. It's ranged from lackadaisical to terrible- this evening. Our waiter made zero eye contact- not for 1 second. When he walked in our area (and when 2 other servers walked nearby) no one ever looked up- maybe they were studying the carpet. To receive water refills we had to ask 4 times- 3 different folks. We were not offered the condiment tray. When we asked for it, we had to ask 3 folks. One, a waiter at the next table who dropped a nearly-full rice dish on the floor near his guests, brought over a dirty tray at about the same time as a bus person found a clean one. Based on 4 visits, it appears that none of the wait staff has received ANY training in any type of customer service. I saw total indifference.
After we paid and the rest of my party left, I spoke to the person handling the money- that's normally an indication of some degree of trust. I gave him maybe 30 seconds of information- including that we all enjoyed our food. He asked nothing, showed no concern and merely replied ""OK."" As best I can tell, either this place has absentee management or they are so busy that they don't care if they alienate local customers.
The food here is AMAZING! the dishes served here are authentic and taste great. this restaurant is very busy and lunchtime is a crowd but well worth the wait. the table service isn't exceptional, and i think that's because their food is far superior to most thai restaurants. all is great...pad thai, thom kha, green curry, larb salad, som tom....too many to list. HIGHLY recommended.

It's no joke, the place is REALLY loud. We went on a weekday for lunch. It was packed but we did not have to wait. I could not hear myself talk let along my dining companion. The lunch portion and prices were reasonable but I did not order off the lunch menu. The size of my spicy fried rice was enough for two people. I love garlic and can eat it raw. This dish had a tremendous amount of garlic in it. I ordered it medium, which was just the right amount of spiciness. The food was good, but I suggest take-out just because the noise levels in this place when it was full was unbearable.
