Well I just came in here on a whim after having driven by countless hundreds of times on my way to the mall or DTF… It was on my way back from ice skating with the munchkin and some of our friends. The kids wanted noodles and I wanted some kind of chicken deal and the thought jumped out at me, lets go do Thai… so I drove us all over here and we had a post skating early dinner.
This was both good and bad for multiple reasons. The joint was mostly empty and thus we had fairly attentive service until the wait staff had dinner. They were trying to eat while working and that was kinda a cluster*(&^. However they were friendly and when they looked around while eating they would get up and help you if it seemed like you needed it. But they were pretty intent on grubben which is pretty understandable.
Pro Tip: Free upgrade on most drinks to a large on Friday Saturday and Sunday. There was also a weekday deal on the placard on each table.
We got a few dishes and several beverages. The beverages included a pearl milk tea err boba, a thai tea, and a lychee green tea with boba. Since two of these drinks are extremely rare for a Thai joint, the lychee tea was tasty and surprisingly went well with the grub.
Pro Tip #2: They have a full drink ordering area/café at the parking lot side area.
We ordered a number of dishes including the shrimp pad thai (least favorite amongst the group), garlic pepper chicken which had a great sauce, shrimp fried rice, and chicken pad see ew. One thing that was a running theme seemed to be a lesser quantity of meat in the dishes. They had a lot more veggies fillers than meat in all of the dishes. To some this would be great perhaps, but to a carnivore like myself, it was a bit disappointing. The garlic pepper chicken sauce was absolutely awesome though. I almost licked my plate…
The rest of the food to me was average, but I didnt eat the pad thai since it had eggs. They also used a slightly smaller plate for the garlic pepper chicken vs the plates that the fried rice and noodle dishes came on… pretty sneaky for sure…
So this place wasn’t exactly a 3 star but I don’t feel its quite worthy of a 4th star at this point. I would return here for another sampling or three.

Great place to go to for lunch. The prices are very good and the service is fast. They have lunch specials here that give you a complete meal for a ridiculous price. I've had several of the lunch specials and I've liked them all. If you like Thai food and want it to be good and affordable and be in and out in less than 45 minutes, than this is your spot.
