Welcome to the WORLD FAMOUS ThaiFoodAficionado.com, the only site of it's kind! I travel for a living and so I get to try a lot of different Thai Restaurants. Enjoy the brutally honest THAI RESTAURANT REVIEWS and the wealth of other THAI FOOD INFORMATION I have learned along the way. Living in the southwest you would think I would create a blog about Mexican food... nope, ALL THAI ALL THE TIME!

I am writing up this review off of an unusually small amount of notes. Even after looking at the pictures I am trying to remember this place. It could just be that it is getting lost in the hundreds of Thai Restaurants I have been to... or it could have just been that I wasn't feeling my note taking skills that day. With that said... here goes the review. The people that worked there were as sweet as their Thai Iced Tea, both on the phone and in person. The owner came out and hugged a couple regulars, I always like to see the happiness in those relationships. I was a little afraid at first because of the sushi mix, but after looking at a couple plates come out I started to crave a little Sushi, it looked that good. They didn't have Yellow Curry, just Massaman, but then again I can't fault them for that, right? An example of how good the staff is; the server saw that I ran out of peanut sauce and offered to refill it without me asking. The Massaman sauce was to die for, a bowl of peanuty goodness, but the chicken was a little dry.
I didn't get specific prices but it was $18.00 total without tip. For lunch with appetizer
