Yummy but oily

I thought this was really good! I’m a sucker for a good pad Thai and this place did well with it. It was a nice amount of food, kind of pricey though. I got the tofu and vegetable pad Thai which was very flavorful but greasier than I like. Remember to ask for it vegan! We also got the vegetable spring rolls and they were so good. I would go again.

Pros: Good flavor

Cons: Pricey , Greasy

Satisfactory vegan options

My pad see ew was tasty. The menu doesn't specify much but staff was knowledgeable and friendly and happy to accommodate our questions and requests. Better than the other Thai place where all our food came smelling like fish.

It’s fine. There are some decent options and the food wasn’t bad, but it’s far from my first choice of restaurant in Ithaca.

Order had egg in it

Wouldn’t recommend this place. My partner and I placed an order with them for the first time the other day. We asked if they could make the noodles vegan and they assured us they could. At risk of sounding annoying, we clarified the order having no egg or fish sauce 3 times to which they nicely assured us it wasn’t a problem. When we received our order, one of the meals had egg in it. They also accidental charged us twice and we’ve been working for 5 days trying to get a refund for the meal and the other charge off our card.

Good Tom Yum and knowledgeable staff

Overall I had a good experience here. I ordered the vegetable dumplings and the Tom Yum with tofu and veggies. The Tom Yum was excellent. I wasn’t a big fan of the dumplings, but they weren’t bad... it just comes down to personal preference. They had a filling of soy floss, which I was not expecting/hoping for. The staff is great and super helpful about vegan options; they know exactly which items are vegan and if they can be made vegan!
