Absolutely beautiful. Pork Belly stir fry. Reasonably priced and delicious with strong ginger flavours, ultra polite staff as only Asians seem to be able to master. Ample sized portions and authentic taste while the price is very reasonable. On my next Sydney trip, I'll be...More

Nice environment, tasty food and great service. We've gone there as a group and we shared whatever we ordered. Everything was delicious, but Thai rice with prown was the best.

They serves Good authentic Thai food. The portions are Big. And their fried icecream is yum. Recommend that you book for a table or come at a non busy period.

This place can get very busy especially as they do not take bookings so expect to line up if you don't arrive early. I went with a group of friends and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and service good. This is some...More

Went as a family of five and tried many different dishes. The food was very good, but it was hot and a bit noisy. They need to provide a more comfortable atmosphere. Service was good too, so it must depend on who the wait staff...More
