Pretty Tasty - Edit

I had the green curry and chive dumpling appetizer. The curry was good but I've had better.

Good food, nice people - Edit

We were just passing through and stopped for dinner. Google maps couldn't seem to find it, and if it weren't 10F outside it wouldn't have been so challenging to walk around the small riverfront area!

Don't be too put off by the look of the place when you walk in, the seating is around the corner and tho simple, is nice enough. Don't expect haute cuisine ambiance.

I had the Panang noodles. Great sweet, coconutty sauce with subtle spice (mild on their 4pt scale), broccoli, peapods, green beans, braised tofu, and nice big chewy rice noodles. Loved it. Also shared a simple cucumber salad with a very simple but good sweet vinegar dressing. My husband had musamun with tofu and really liked.

The service was very friendly and helpful with only a minor language barrier. Meals arrived very quickly. Asked for everything without fish sauce and was assured it was so.

Dinner for two was $30. They are closed on Tuesdays...otherwise we'd be headed back for lunch tomorrow before hitting the road. Major bummer! They have build-your-own soups that look great. And always want to compare Padthai between places.

Good Thai Food - Edit

Every time we have eaten here the food was good with good service. However, we recently tried to go on a Sunday afternoon and they were closed. Nothing posted on Facebook, their website or their door. All signs said they opened at noon yet no one was there a good hour or so after this time. Disappointing. Call ahead.

Pros: Food, Service

Cons: Call ahead

Awesome - Edit

I went to this restaurant with my mom (who is gluten free) and we expected to have to search for either vegan or gluten free options. When we got there on a chalkboard it says to tell the server for any allergies if you're gluten free, vegetarian or vegan. We were amazed to find out that you tell the server about any diets and they change any meal to suit that diet so you don't have to worry about anything. I would give 5 stars because it was the best ever.

Great Thai Food By Thai People - Edit

This is a great place with plenty of vegan options. I had the Curry Vegetable Stir Fry with Tofu, it was delicious! It had the perfect amount of spice, which they will tailor to your taste. The owner and chef, Toom Wiitanen, is a wonderful woman and she is eager to please her mostly vegan, vegetarian clientele. Her daughter is the perfect, attentive waitress.
My husband can't have gluten which was not a problem here either. We both enjoyed our meals very much and we will be returning!
They are closed on Tuesdays, but open on Mondays.

Pros: Great food, Large variety, Wonderful staff
