The food, nice. There was a wait for it, but once it all came, to be honest it was delicious. But nobody seemed to care about the place. They came when called, but otherwise didn't seem to bother. And it does bug me when they add service to the bill, when there really wasn't any.

After going to a few Thai restaurants in HK, I'm beginning to feel a large swath of them are not that authentic The tables here are indeed quite close together. Ok if empty but quite the squeeze if crowded I had the duck curry that had 2 chilli signs next to it. Not spicy at all. They call the morning... More

Unique duck and lychee curry but rice is extra. Just include rice like curry should have. Friendly service, modest price for the area.

Overall i was unimpressed by this place. However the fresh coconut was great which makes it just 4* for me. For the rest, average combo platter, descent curry and mango dessert.

Located on the 6th floor it is a little difficult to find, but after taking the escalator to the 3rd floor you need to take the lift. The food was great, the service first class, although I have had better soft shell crab in other places. But this was only a minor issue. The staff where efficient but not intrusive.

Thank John W

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
