Went 11:45 for lunch with friends. Very busy, reservation required. Ordered lunch special with clear soup with beef, and fresh roll. Soup was hot, fresh cilantro, fresh mushrooms and really fresh ingredients. Well seasoned, mild lemon grass taste. Fresh roll was really good, had sprouts and really fresh ingredients. Special was assorted different dishes, yellow curry with chicken, vegetable stir... More

Small place, very clean, great food. Decent portions, well prepared dishes, friendly staff. I had a chicken/potato dish in a curry coconut sauce. I have had this before at other Thai restaurants, here there is much more chicken than potato. Reasonably priced. A very happy experience.

My husband and I just stumbled upon this lovely restaurant in Nepean. In a small local mall we enjoyed their lunch special ... all items made fresh in the morning for the lunch crowd. Lunch is served from 11:30 to 2:00. The meal began with a lovely hot and sour sour soup with mushrooms (nice broth, thin sliced mushrooms with... More

I've been to both locations and was happy both times. It can get fairly busy at the Centrepointe location but you shouldn't have to wait too long. Authentic Thai cuisine and I was fully satisfied with the service. There's a surprising amount of room, making it good for date night or for bigger groups.

The service was great, friendly and fast. The layout was good (but sadly you feel the cold air every time somebody opens the door). The portions were small enough not to overwhelm yet large enough to fill you up. The food was well balanced and perfectly flavored. This is a great Thai place.

We went here with my sister on a Tuesday and the place was crowded, with reason. The staff was friendly and helpful. They quickly told me what items were gluten free, which were the curries and the pad Thai. Between us we had 2 curries and a pad Thai. While the sauce for the duck curry looked the same as... More

Have eaten here many times over the past few years and have always been pleased. Ordered take-out this past weekend and, while some the dishes were okay (not great, just passable) the soup was nothing more than flavourless, coloured water and the pad thai was terrible. It was so rubbery, I would hazard a guess that is was leftover from... More

We started with the Tom Kha Gai soup that has a wonderful flavour, sweet and sour with coconut milk - amazing. Next was the fresh wrap rolls and then mains including Gaeng Kua Supparod of shrimp and pineapple curry - presentation was beautiful; Pad Thai with shrimp was the best tasting Pad Thai I've had ever; and Goong Pad Pak...

The best Thai food I have had in Ottawa. Truly a hidden gem in a small strip mall. Great flavour with beautiful presentation and an attentive staff.
