A enjoyable meal fresh and tasty. Excellent service we were walk ins and where quickly seated. Being a Saturday there were plenty of people in the restaurant and orders for takeout. Entree arrived promptly and followed with main not long after. Decor could do with refreshing. Only thing that could improve the service is we were not asked about drinks... More

Lovely Thai food, however portions slightly small. Went there for an 80th. A banquet was served. Could have been bigger amounts of food for the numbers of people there. Overall good service

We had a nice dinner with friends. It is a very nice restaurant to sit in. The waitress was very friendly and helpful as I was looking for recommendations what dishes might be possible to veganize. I found a delicious vegetable dish with Thai Sauce and Rice. The Lemon bitters drink is very good, too.

I have been going to this restaurant for years whenever I am in town. Haven't been for 18 months or so. OMG it is disgusting. I ordered Thai barbecue pork with sweet chilli sauce & stir fry vegetables. The dish had lettuce & raw apple with steam vegetables with water floating at the bottom. It gets better- have a look...
