We had a large family gathering of 20 plus diners on a Saturday night, The restaurant has its own parking. Upon entering the restaurant, you cannot help but admire the subtle elegance of the decor. Food and service top notch - no complaints. Cannot wait to dine there again.

I have only been here twice, both times as a member of a large group. The service was attentive and speedy and all 26 of us were served simultaneously, which is seriously impressive. This time I tried a spicy beef dish, which my friend had ordered. We were warned that it was hot, but actually it was a taste sensation.... More

Heard about it, read the reviews and impressed by it. Finally tried it and I was truly impressed by it. I have to admit that I liked the food and services, especially their flaming chicken and fish dishes. Happy and No complaint.

Always a great sign when multiple Thai families are also dining in the restaurant! As Chinese also we will go far and wide in search of the best restaurants which serve food close to home. Wonderful decor and food, the flaming chicken and red curries are a must, fish also great. Dedicated parking is a rarity these days making it... More

The menu is a bit more diverse than your normal Thai restaurant and is reflected in the price. The food was well presented and tasty. The portions are generous. Staff are attentive and friendly. The wine and drinks list should have something for all tastes. This is not your cheap and cheerful Thai but more a place for a special... More

Been to this lovely restaurant a few times and always delivers. The round tables are great for groups to share food, drinks, laughter and discussion. Food is tasty (and mysterious) and it's quite exciting sampling the variety of dishes. The dessert was awesome! Service is of a very high standard.

This is a restaurant that knows and practices service and hospitality in every way. Warm greeting from the host on arrival and the attention to every detail was given throughout the evening. Totally amazing selection of food. We had one vegan and one vegetarian in our group so for a restaurant to cater for everyone is great!!!!
