Such a nice restaurant to eat at. Lovely staff and such yummy food. We always get our meals and share them which is a really nice way to try a little bit of everything. Staff are always so friendly. The sizzling pork with the satay sauce is to die for.

This is a quaint restaurant with a fairly extensive menu. The food is delicious with the service being quick and efficient. There is a reasonable choice of wine and some stunning garnishes are provided with the meals

A small, cosy restaurant not far from the gyms that infest this part of Victoria St, making parking a somewhat haphazard affair. This is our local restaurant and Onnie, our hostess, is friendly and amenable, and has taught me most of the Thai I know! The food is always of a high standard with lovely flavours. Washed down with a... More

Service was a little slow. Tables are a bit crammed in together. Ok for the price. Food average but tasty. Cheaper to take away than dine in the restaurant. Would go back.

Hubby says very good. I say average. My dish of cashew nut prawns was nice but the sauce was a little thin on the ground and his was the pork satay..very peanutty but lacking a bit of freshness I found. It was a decent meal but I've had a lot better elsewhere.

Expected better quality food considering that this place is more expensive than the other Thai restaurant further up the road but was very disappointed. My chicken jungle curry was all cheap vegetables but my husband reported his green Thai curry was passable. Very stingy portion of rice. We will not be returning.

We dined in and had entree and mains, all food was very fresh and tasty. Loved the curry puffs. the pastry was soft and flakey. We had BBQ pork which was really nice as was the ginger and garlic chicken dish. We left very full. Shame no BYO or licensed wine in the venue. Would have enjoyed a good white... More

Didn't match reviews. The satay was just awful and noone at our table liked the dishes we were provided. We will not be returning.

Decided to pay a visit after reading reviews but had mixed results. Went early so it was quiet when we arrived. We were quickly given menus, water and glasses for our BYO wine. We shared starters. The money bags which were very nice but the chicken satay was very disappointing. The satay looked, and tasted, like it was just smooth... More
