Soooooooooooo flavorfull

We eat here every time we visit the Carlsbad area! This is some of the best flavored Thai food we've ever had. Good veggie options. Prices are a little on the high side for us, but it's usually the splurge of the trip. Easy to find, not far from the freeway.

Pros: Such flavorful food, Easy to find and park
Cons: A little on the pricey side

Good for lack of a better option

Had some good vegan options and the waitress was very helpful. We were able to change the veggie soup from chicken broth to vegetable broth. You can also order mock duck, tofu, or extra vegetables with all of the entrees. We ordered a few noodle dishes like the pad see ew. They were very flavorful and we enjoyed most of the dishes. The only thing is you could tell one of our dishes was grilled with meat and the flavor was off putting.

Try the Mock Duck

The mock duck is our favorite part of this restaurant, a soy curd that is soooo tasty! They can make vegan dishes but be very specific about no egg, no seafood-based sauces or broths, etc. A little on the oily side with some dishes but that is so yummy now and then. I love how they do soy thread noodles!
