This is my favorite Restaurant. Friendly people and excellent cuisine. A large variety food on the menu. My Husband and I have had opportunities to eat there on several occasion testing an assortment of dishes.
One of my favorites menu choices is Pla lad prik, crispy fish with Thai style chili sauce. I recommend Red Snapper choice of fish(my husband is very fun of Bangkok Duck), although we have never had anything that was not delicious.

Last night I found the jewel of Thai food I was hoping existed in Charleston. I've been to many, many Thai restaurants in a few different cities, New York City being one of them. This restaurant was by far the best that I have been too thus far.

The ambiance of the restaurant was so wonderful. One of the first things I noticed when I walked in was the lack of cigarette smoke. As a New York transplant now residing in the heart of the Tobacco Belt, I was pleasantly surprised and delighted that the restaurant is decidedly smoke free. We were seated immediately, around 9:30 on a Saturday night. In the corner, there was a lone musician playing an acoustic set of some of my favorite covers, Incubus, Oasis, Blues Traveler.

My boyfriend and I went right to ordering a Thai Iced tea. I was dismayed that they were all out of coconut shrimp, but the waitress assured me that an alternative appetizer of Shrimp in a blanket were also very good. My boyfriend ordered the chicken satay and I ended up going with the shrimps in a blanket.

The food came out very fast and we proceeded to devour our appetizers. The shrimps in a blanket were outstanding, although no substitute for the coconut shrimp. The spicy dipping sauce it came with was nice contrast to the tender shrimps wrapped in the crispy fried pastry dough they were rolled in. The chick satay was also wonderful and it came with the familiar peanut sauce, but also a sweet and refreshing cucumber relish.

My boyfriend and I both ordered the Massaman Curry for an entree. This dish is one of my most favorite dishes in the whole world. I have even tracked down some imported Massaman curry paste from a local Asian grocery and have made this dish myself with much success; however the preparation for this dish does take quite a lot of time.

This curry was made to absolute perfection. The fragrant jasmine rice was perfectly cooked and the curry was smooth, sweet and slightly spicy. The amount of curry we got for $10 was beyond belief. Both myself and my partner have very, very healthy appetites and are usually able to clean our plates, however we could not finish the serving of curry and rice we were served. I was delighted! For $10, I got both a full dinner, but enough to take home and have again the next day for lunch.

The great thing about this place is that it extremely affordable, wonderful atmosphere, and exceptional food. The chef and owner is a Thai woman that honors her mother and her cooking by gracing her wedding picture on the front of the menu.

Please don't miss out on this exceptional dining experience hidden in the grittiness of North Charleston.

PROS: Price, variety, taste!
CONS: Location might deter some people who don't leave Mount Pleasant
