This is my to-die-for Thai restaurant – I had been skeptical about this restaurant before because I have never seen it crowded at all during the day. But oh boy, I was wrong. I just went there for dinner on Friday and it was packed. After waiting for about 5-10 minutes, I finally got a table. I had the traditional pad thai and the sweet sticky rice with mango for dessert. Pad thai was a mind blowing dish. The softness of the noodle is just right. The combination of sweet and sour tastes is great but I wish it was a bit more spicy. I love the way they decorate the dishes with colorful veggies. Also those little sugar, salt, pepper bottles are really cute. I wish I could take them home.
The ambience is great. The walls are green and chairs and tables are white, giving very homey feeling. Restroom is clean unlike many other Asian restaurants in the area. The prices range from 6-10 dollars and given what you will get, this place is a ?steal?. Good for lunch and dinner. Great for a couple on a casual date too.
Yummy!!! – It's my favorite place. The food is awesome!! I have tried Chicken Pad Thai , Spicy Fried Rice with Tofu, Satay Chicken, Thai tea, and Sticky Rice with Mango. Everything is impressive and relatively more authentic compared to other Thai restaurants I have tried in the Orange County. The service is great. People there are very friendly. The price for lunch special is unbeatable! I plan to go there again soon for a dinner and just can't wait to try other dishes.
BEST THAI FOOD :) – hey this restaurant have a real thai food. It's so delicious. There are many dishes that i love such as Labb Moo, Moo satay and various kinds of curry. Moreover, staffs are very nice. I love this restaurant.
Up to expectations! – A total of 5 buddies in b-ball team went to this place on saturday night and gotta admit that it was very impressive. We were promptly seated and our glasses were filled with water immediately with the big menu in front of us. They were crowd on that night but it is not too long until our food was served including chicken pad thai, pineapple fried rice, tofu garlic, chicken yellow curry, beef satay and bangkok cups. The last one was encouraged by the waitress and we were not disappointed at all, very good stuffs. We finished our meal with sticky rice with coconut ice cream and sticky rice with mango. This place was really right up there with the BEST.
Best Pad Thai, Garlic Shrimp and Dumpling in OC! – My friends took me there weeks ago for their promotional lunch specials. The deal was pretty good and the food was soooo gooooodd. Can't believe I 've never seen it although i passed that stripped mall every day to my office. I ordered pad thai as part of the lunch special served with fried wonton, rice, salad and wonton soup. Weeks later on, i took my gf to visit them during dinner time and we order dumpling and garlic shrimp. My gf loved it very much. The server gal was extremely nice and friendly. I personally like their mural wall and real waterfall. Quite difference from other Thai place that decorates with antique thai stuffs, this place just put up with light green tone with real tree, real water fall and they paint the ceiling with a sky and cloud. Thumb up to you Thai Chili !
Decent – I thought the food was average. I ordered the pad thai and thought it was a too sweet. Also tried a curry and the vegetables with the curry were hard instead of being soft. The sticky rice with ice cream was pretty good though. I like the decor of the place and a lady provides some entertainment with dancing and playing an instrument.
Great Thai restaurant for Thai food lover with Live music and dance show – The decoration gives warm, homey feeling from trees as well as relaxation sound from the real waterfall. Waitress was friendly and gave us some suggestion on food order. We ordered combination appetizer "Thai tiger beef salad" as a try out. The "Bangkok-Cup" (as a part of combo app) was very good and the peanut sauce went very well with beef satay (also in the combo app). The tiger beef wasn't really the tiger meat but charbroiled marinated beef. What made it special was its spicy sauce, which brought us a little heat and appetize. Then, we ordered Pad-Thai shrimp, Thai chili spicy fried fish which is served with panang curry, pineapple fried rice which are all in the chef special's list. I have to say Pad-Thai here is the best one I have ever tried; the noodle was soft and full of flavor but not soaked and shrimp is about right. The fried fish and panang (a kind of Thai curry) had a hint aroma of herb and and spices with a little spicy taste, which was compatible with a fruity and a little sweety taste from pineapple fried rice. At the end of the meal, the price was reasonable; in fact it is quite inexpensive. I strongly recommend thai-food lover to go there and check out for yourselves and I guarantee you won't be dissapointed.
Excellent food + great service, one of the best in Orange county! – Since I got their business card from my bf and went to visit their site, I already fell in love with all pixs of food in their site. I and my bf went there at lunch and it was quite abit crowd with people. I was recommended to try one of their lunch special choice, Padthai chicken, from the lovely waitress who always smiles. I ordered young coconut juice for myself and thai ice tea for my bf. In summary, Great food and very friedly service. Their taste is way different and better than other thai place we have tried. Will recommend to friends who love Thai food.
I jut had da Best authentic thai food with very nice service – I've been looking for good thai place since I moved in Anaheim area for a while. I 've found one place that my friend told me to try, on Tustin st, near The Village, orange mall. I fell in love with their food and warm welcome service over there. Satay chicken and Yellow Curry together with Padthai chicken really impressed me and my friends on that night. My friends ordered sticky rice with mango and young coconut icecream. Even thou I didn't try them coz i was too full, but the desserts looks so delicious. And their decorration is so natural, with many thai flower and tree, esp the REAL waterfall. The most stunning moment would be the LIVE music show!! There is one gal dressed up with traditional thai dress and play some thai instrument on the stage.... very soft sound like guitar. Overall, i and my friends had a really great nite outand we definitely will be back. (I found out that they have reasonably cheap lunch special meal at $5.95, comes with rice, wonton soup, one main choice of food)
Good thai food place. – What I really like about this place is the customer service is
very good, even they were quite busy. The waitresses were very
welcoming. They greeted us with smile from the first step we entered
the place. And the restaurant itself make you feel relaxing. However,
the best of all must go to the food taste and quality. I can say it is
one of the best restaurant I have ever tried
