“The de facto standard for excellent Thai in Winchester--everyone I know agrees they are great, with generous portions, friendly service, and a kid-favorite free dessert "smile". This is located on the walking mall though there is a 2nd location on Pleasant Valley which is equally good, just more of a strip mall experience. ”
