Has anyone been here yet? It's by the Little Caesar's pizza and Kragen Auto Parts in what was briefly a Mexican restaurant (looks like an old Pizza Hut). Near Idaho Street, maybe? Please report!

    How odd...I just ate there tonight before work. Another converted Pizza Hut, but is does look nice inside. I only had the spicy noodles with chicken and Thai ice coffee. The dish was good, but there are better Thai noodle dishes out there.

      I got takeout from there once, and my husband and I both enjoyed it. It's not the best Thai food, but it was good. We especially liked the tom ka and the vegetarian satay. I'm not sure I would drive out of my for it, but since it's walking distance from our house, we'll be going back for sure.

        That's my impression also, a decent neighborhood place, but probably not worth making a special trip for. We ordered a whole fish special and it was very good, green papaya salad was good, noodle dish was just OK. I just have to remember that it's an option for take-out, since I usually end up at Roberto's #10...

        WE WENT THERE LAST NITE TO EAT AND THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD. I HAD THE EGGROLLS WHICH WERE VERY GOOD AND THE THAI BARBUCUED CHICKEN WHICH WAS VERY GOOD. I WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK AGAIN.

          was kind of disappointed that they didn't have any lunch specials that included soup. maybe that's changed since their grand opening. the curries were ok. I thought they were a bit runny for my taste.

            I live nearby and gave it a take-out try. Just basics: Pad Thai and Tom Kha. Both were good, but not the best in town. Still, i'm glad to have a respectable Thai option very close at hand.
