Davina L. noted, "We opted out of the fish sauce wings and went for the Gai Rard Sauce Si-Sa-Ket Wings -- delish! My absolute fave: pad kra-prao (minced pork). So flavorful and rightfully spicy. The weeping tiger was alright. Didn't really dig the texture, but overall, we will keep coming back for the wings and pad kra prao. And they deliver!"

I had the best tom yum soup; great environment, good price, love the place and I would recommend.

Yelper Ava W. wrote, "I would definitely recommend this place for their lunch special! You can get a mini salad, an appetizer and one main course meal for just around $9. I ended up getting spring rolls and pad Thai for my take-out order. The food was pretty good, especially for the price."

I also ordered some other dishes, which were all good: khao soi, roti canai, beef curry puff and pad Thai. Overall I really enjoyed my experience."

Yelper Pat L. wrote, "We were blown away! The dishes' flavor profiles were totally on point. The ped ka prao (basil ground chicken with fried egg combo) was fabulous. Wonderfully flavored. The green curry was the best Thai curry we've had in Brooklyn."
