Decent Thai restaurant with plenty of choices. We recommend Pad Thai, deep fried cat fish mango salad and Tomyum soup. Very tasty and came in big portion.

A good find, here in Saigon. This Thai restaurant made us welcome and had a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere. The food was excellent. Top Tip... if you want chopsticks and a rice bowl, just ask.
