We were lucky enough to go early, and claim a table on their small patio, which they didnít seem to plan to use. Good thing, because we hung for a few hours just enjoying the great food on a warm evening...

Best thai fried rice
by Yuvaraj S.
Ive tried almost everything on the menu and never been disappointed. If you want a light lunch try larb lettuce wraps. Gai Jee is my favorite and the Pad Thai will make you never get it anywhere else.
by Min K.
The Spring Rolls are great. Just get them.
by Liz S.
Get there early - by noon there is a 30 min wait.

This is the best Thai I've had in Nashville this far

They don't serve booze

Gai Yang and cashew chicken are my favorites followed by pad kra pow. Steamed veggie w/peanut sauce app is great.
The Lemongrass soup is an absolute must.
by Caleb B.

by David S.

BEST THAI FOOD
by National Car Rental
Definitely overrated... one note flavor. I would not recommend it.
by Makaili D.
Lemongrass soup = awesome.
by Chris A.
Cashew chicken dish is the BEST!
by Meredith M.
They don't take reservations so come early because they're popular!
by Raymond L.
We love this place:) Come try us for lunch or dinner if you like Gourmet Burgers and Fresh Fries and comfort food. We make it fresh daily:) Eat*Live*Love*Luna

The owner grows his own bean sprouts. He'll give you a handful to try if you say you love bean sprouts (at least it worked for me:)
by Wendy M.
If you really want hot, tell them you want the hottest with more side hot. So good. So hot
The small soup is $3.95, but the large is $10.95. You've been warned.
by Wendy M.
It's green curry tonight! Red is the best but Green is a tight 2nd.
by Scott R.
Pad kra paw is awesome, but spicy
No Amex or discover here
by kiran g.
Everyone is always raving about this place so I tried it. Not impressed! The food is just hot... No flavor. My favorite thing about Thai food is the balance of all 4 flavors. Do not recommend
by Tristan S.
Get in early for dinner; the restaurant's seating capacity is fairly small. Lunch portions are the same as dinner portions, but a bit less expensive-- consider picking up your takeout dinner at lunch.

They don't take AMEX so be prepared!
