“Carl and Kim run this local establishment and their Thai is as authentic and as tasty as you will find in any major U.S. city. Our favorite is the panang curry. For dessert, try the mango sticky rice!”

“This is a nice place to have a bite and a drink while sitting on the covered patio. The area is off the main drag so you don't have all the traffic and noise from the cars and trucks, but very easy drive up First Street from White Sands Bvd. Good prices, friendly staff.”
