It’s an unpretentious place in an almost deserted mall. It’s located west of the intersection of Five Forks and Oak Road, a bit south of the Sonic drive-in.   I only found it because I was hungry waiting for my daughter and drove past. Later I would drop by when I had to take care of myself.

This place, in my opinion, is the best Thai in Snellville. And checking out review sites such as Yelp, I’m not the only one who thinks so. The restaurant is a bit of a “mom and pop” place, and so the service isn’t going to be instant. But the waiter will listen to you, adjust your seasonings if you ask. If you want things spicy though, you’ll need to insist. Most Thai places tone down the hot stuff to the milder Atlanta tastes.

I’m especially fond of the cucumber salad they serve. The dressing is light and it’s a great summer appetizer. Otherwise, I tend to eat one of the several curry dishes they serve (I used to favor green curries, but I’m partial to masaman curries these days), while my wife tends to Pad Thai when she’s there.

Strictly speaking, the formal address is one in Lawrenceville, just it’s far closer to the heart of Snellville, in actuality. To get here, take the Five Forks exit off Ronald Reagan and head south. At Oak Road, turn right. It will be in the strip mall to your left.
