Good atmosphere and the food lived up to its recommendations! The only negative point would be limited space as I was a little bit cramped. Go for the Massaman!!

Had exquisite dinner tonight for 6. From start to finish the flavours and authentic dishes were way beyond our expectation. Restaurant was packed but the owner and his waitress proved to be so friendly and attentive. Can not wait for return visit
