A friend of mine gave us a gift certificate for the holidays to this restaurant and I am so glad they did. I had given up on Thai food in Santa Cruz until now. Just the right flavor and better than Thailand. The food came out fresh with just the right amount if spice. The service was not amazing but everything was handled well and with more than the usual friendliness. Another quick point is that the food in Capitola Village is usually not very good until now. I give this 5 stars for flavor and would add a star if I could due to it being the only restaurant in the village that makes me hungry.
