    Best Thai in Seattle. Today I ate panang, pad Thai, chicken satay, & spring rolls. Everything was bomb per usual.

    Their panang isn't watered down like everywhere else. I've been coming here since high school.

    Definitely, a good A-OK.

    Food is served, hot, and SPICY. 3 Stars spice rating here for us was inedible because of the SPICE level, LOL.  But we are not spice fanatics.  If you love spicy hot, you will love it here.

    I would say the chicken was very standard fare and so was the beef.

    Panang was excellent.

    Service, was very friendly and prompt.  The to go orders and uber pickups were off the chain here.  Obviously a very popular joint.

    Not much more to say mainly because we were spice pansies at least here, and could not finish our meal.

    Beware the spice!

    This is one of my preferred Thai places in Seattle. It's a super no-frills place run by a Thai family. Their flavors are spot on, the food is actually spicy, and they have a menu with all the greatest hits and then some. The food (and the ambiance) is real down home. Definitely don't come here expecting anything fancy, but I think that gives their food more validity. I've eaten here and gotten food to-go and it's been tasty in both instances. I like the down home nature of the food and physical space.

    I think it's worth noting the pad thai holds up when you get it as take out. I'm always skeptical of getting pad thai to go because it can go so horribly wrong, but I felt theirs didn't suffer from this. The prices here are reasonable and it's a good place to take kids or a group because the dining room is never too quiet. If you live in this area, this is a great and reliable spot to get Thai food.

    Came here last night cause dad and I couldn't figure out where to grab dinner. We were going to to do Vietnamese but the place we were going to try wasn't open yet. We shared these two dishes Mama noodles and Thai crispy chicken. Like the noodles nice spice for the two star. Lots of veggies and chicken. Think I'd go with curry next time instead of the Thai chicken was too sweet for me.

    Service was friendly and I liked  the menus in reused vinyl covers. I can understand what another review said about getting food but no follow up. Think struggle is they do a lot of take out and delivery. I'm not going to mark them down for that cause to be fair I don't think I've done that to anyone else. Also I'm not against going up and asking for something if I need it like more water or a to go container.

    I came here on a whim to try something new and I stumbled onto this mom & pop thai restaurant. The service was warm and welcoming and even though the restaurant was a little older, it was still pretty clean!

    I tried the khao soi, garlic garlic beef, and the mango sticky rice. Although the flavoring of the first 2 dishes were great, the ingredients were lacking. The menu has a variety of dishes with various flavors,  but the ingredients for the dishes were the same/super similar. The portions were average, but not worth the higher price point. The mango sticky rice was below average, and it looks a lot better than it tastes.

    If you live in the area and you're wanting some thai, this spot would do the job, but I wouldn't go out of my way to try the food. I'd recommend at least coming once to give it a try!
