    Seriously this is some of the best fried chicken I've had in my life. The roti and curry are delightful. This is going to be a regular spot for me for sure.

    As someone who grew up eating and making southern Thai food, I can vouch for this place's authenticity & tastiness. Share the hat yai fried chicken, southern ground pork (khua Kling) + a curry.

    Had chicken and sticky rice, along with a Thai iced tea. The chicken was a drumstick and thigh. Drumstick was ok, thigh had tons of flavor. Served with a great sweet chili sauce. Tea was really good.

    I always get the curry & roti sets. Bf is hooked on the (spicy) brisket curry. Saw a tip to try to Muu Hong so I went for it and 5 days later I’m still thinking about it. Coming back soon for more :)

    Don't sleep on the daily farmers market special curries, like Tumeric Mussels and Brisket green curry. Perfect with draft beer and cider.

    This is my new addiction!! Wow the curry, chicken and roti combo is just soo comforting! The mango horchata is something dreams are made of! Don’t order too much cause they run out!

    The pork belly and braised beef cheek curry are worth trying. The fries chicken is the best part! Great Thai flavors with extra crispy skin and juicy meat.

    Put it this way, the food here is so fucking good, I have a piece of the fried chicken stuck in my teeth and I don’t want to get it out because then it will be over.

    Entree presentations are off the mainstream typical concoctions you get at Thai restaurants. Enjoyed Pad Thai and Thai Iced tea.

    When the item says Spicy, it is REALLY spicy. So be warned. I like spicy food but it was way too much for me.

    Curry chicken with roti was the bomb. Sweet, curry-ish and just the right spicy. Portion size is very small for the price.

    Excellent food, but service could be improved, especially during the busy dinner hour. I found that lunch is a better time to go.

    They have online ordering and will let you pick up outside if you call them (but default is going inside to pick up)

    Food is good, place is nice. But the payment system with advanced payment can be bothersome when you want something else and have to wait for people to order and end up waiting a long time.
