Was just fine, definitely not as good as what the other rating says. But not a bad one either.

It was a small and clean place for Thai food. The service was very good (for 5 star). Both waiters greeted me promptly and gave the attention when I needed. I ordered a stir fried dish (beef and green bean in Thai curry sauce). The beef tasted a little bit dry, but overall, the dish taste good (3 star). The steam rice does not taste like Thai rice, but it is not a big deal. The wonton in the wonton soup was better than I expected from a typical Asian restaurant in the U.S. (but of course, not as good as the ones in China). Overall, I had good experience eating in this restaurant.

The decor and the way of ordering (or service) seem somewhat very strange with me. Food was just fine. Price was OK if with discount or Groupon. Won't label it with anything "value" --- the restaurant offers a variety of daily discount in the restaurant or on the internet. Yet, one can easily find many other restaurants that offer better value (not necessarily mean cheaper) in Downtown Brea.

I went to do a smog check in a Thursday morning. The service is completed quickly. Staff was nice. The online coupon was honored. No complaints. I won't say it is a very clean and neat place with nice furniture, but it is acceptable. Most of all, if a maintenance shop looks nice or not doesn't matter to me as long as they do the job in an efficient way.

Great place for beer and fresh oysters. I like their oysters. The seafood pasta was just OK. The service was good. It was a little bit pricy, but a good place for a nice dinner.

It was a nice place for mediterranean food. Friendly staff. The food tasted good. I've found very good value for the money I spent in this mid-priced range restaurant even without any discounts.
