I go here for the red or green curry. Tell them to leave out the fish sauce.

Pros: price, good food
Cons: hours

My favorite Thai in Springfield

Posted on 02 / 19 / 2012

Quaint little restaurant that is easy to miss. Any dish can have tofu subbed for meat and you can request to leave out the fish sauce. Staff is always friendly. Quality of food is always fresh and full of flavor. My favorites are Vietnamese Spring Rolls wrapped in rice paper with tofu swapped for meat and the Loation Curry "Beef" Noodles with tofu swapped for meat. I have tried a number of dishes and never been disappointed.
