Everything about this place is great. The noodles and sauces are made in-house from scratch. Fresh noodles puts these guys on another level. All of the dishes are fresh prepared. I've tried a lot of the menu and everything is delicious. I order spicy level on main dishes and it comes out perfect. The mango sticky rice for dessert is a must. The staff including the owner are very generous and friendly. This is my go to for Thai food in Omaha.

Absolutely fantastic. The food is incredible. The restaurant is clean, cozy, and inviting. Best of all, the family that owns and operates it is so sweet and genuine that dining there feels like you've been invited into someone's home. We stayed long after the meal to talk and share stories. If you are looking for exquisite Thai/Lao food, this is the place.

This is a husband and wife restaurant that puts love into their food. Everything is made from scratch and even the sauces. It’s the best beef drunken noodles around. My step daughter loved the yellow curry and we also love the pineapple fried rice with chicken. The pho is also amazing. They also hand make their Rangoon’s and our favorite is mango.

First time in and had the Pad Thai and my husband had the Garlic Pepper Steak. Both were big portions and fresh flavor. The veggie spring rolls were also large and four to an order. Most unique was the fact that we got to chat with the owner and hear her story! What a positive and passionate person! She even proudly told us how she makes basically everything from scratch and the food is MSG/gluten free and vegan. WOW. The best Thai iced tea I've ever had also...highly recommend. I think they have some of the best Thai in Omaha.

Love the green curry and papaya salad (Lao style). Ordered level 4 spicy and tasted mild. Next time I would try higher level. Pretty neat and tiny place. Real Thai food.Food: 4/5

Green Curry absolutely blew my mind. Very authentic and delicious Thai food, cooked by a lovely owner and her team with love and knowledge about Thai cooking. Owner is a lovely woman with a warm heart, welcoming and incredibly thoughtful and kind. Drunken noodles with Tofu were INCREDIBLE. Highly recommended.Thank you again from the girl from Ireland

Solid Thai spot, my favorite in Omaha. It's unpretentious, friendly and welcoming. The owners truly care about their food and make a great effort to provide caring service. The drunken noodles were fantastic, it will be my go-to order from now on. The pad thai was solid with a good amount of meat in the order. The fruit oriented rangoon options were creative and my dinner mates enjoyed them. The only suggestion I have, and it's not a huge deal, is to either have some background Thai music playing or SE Asian music videos on the TV. It was dead silent when I went, and I think this would improve the ambience.

This is some of the best Thai food I have ever had! Super nice people that serve with a smile. Not much to look at at far as decor but that's okay because the product is amazing. Fresh spring rolls that are probably rolled per order. Pad see ew was delicious and the noodles tasted homemade. Pad Thai the way it is supposed to be and the red curry chicken dish was spiced just right. Can't wait to go back!

Amazing food, home made noodles for the drunken noodle and the owners are so passionate about the quality! And you can taste it! All their sauces are vegan and dairy free and NO msg! But meat eaters and vegan/vegetarians alike will be sooo happy

The food was amazing. The pad thai was one of the best we've ever had, and the pho was outstanding. The owner/chef came out to check on us toward the end of our meal. Extremely humble and grateful that we chose her restaurant for dinner. We love this place and will be back again.

Came in to visit from Florida to see family and came here twice while we were here for a week. Loved the food. Will be back again to visit in the spring!

I have no words! This place is absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I tried it for the first time today! I can’t believe we live right down the street and just discovered this gem. For an appetizer we ordered the chicken spring rolls with a side of chili sauce and the Thai peanut sauce.The spring rolls were so fresh and delicious. The Thai peanut sauce is to die for! SO good. The chili sauce was good as well but I personally preferred the Thai peanut sauce.I got the Massaman curry + chicken + medium heat and my boyfriend had the pineapple fried rice + chicken. The massaman curry was everything I wanted and more. The flavors were out of this world! It was sweet with the perfect amount of spice . This might be my new favorite dish.My boyfriend’s pineapple fried rice + chicken was also phenomenal. The portion size was huge!The owners were super sweet and chatted with us for a few minutes. You can tell they genuinely care about their customers.11/10 recommended. Everything was AMAZING! We will definitely be back!

This place did not disappoint. On the contrary, the food was delicious and the service friendly and timely. We ordered some fresh spring rolls as a starter, and a drunken noodle dish and a bowl of rare beef pho as a main course. What a treat! In addition to flavorful, authentically tasting dishes, we were told that the meals we ate were gluten free - an added bonus for someone with gluten allergy/intolerance. The owner (who is also the cook) came out and talked to us about the history of this restaurant, that the noodles in the drunken noodle dish are homemade, and many dishes can be ordered as a vegetarian or even vegan option. Hands down best Thai restaurant in town. Can't wait to go back for more.
