The Thai Samosas were delicious and came beautifully presented with an orchid garnish. The duck was superb and the sweet basil chicken was quite good, though heavy on the bamboo. Our fried rice was a good balance of sweet and spicey. Highly recommend!

Visited the eatery with family and found the food to be appealing and appetising. We ordered the Crispy Pompano which is a whole deep fried Pompano fish with Thai spicy chilli sauce. You can ask for the spice level to be adjusted. The Sweet Basil chicken and Red Shrimp curry went along well with the rice. You could try their Thai iced tea which has a unique flavour!

I am a vegetarian and found quite a bit of choice there to eat and it was really nice also, the location has good parking, after eating you can walk along the side of the sea, but watch out for the skunk that crossed our path :-), no kidding.

The seating and atmosphere was great also, there was about 12 of us and there are large tables there so you dont have to sit apart from each other, one problem, the portions are very big, i need larger trousers next time :-)

I would definitely recommend this place to eat.

We just had a great dinner at this place and were fortunate to get a booking on Sunday. The place was jam packed and noisy with families gathered for dinner. We ordered complete vegetarian fare from spring rolls, paper rolls, Thai papaya salad, green curry with sticky rice , fried rice and pad ke saw. Believe me all items were fantastic. We enjoyed our meal and some service improvement was required, but maybe we ignored due to full crowd. But if you want a good Thai meal, this is the place.

This restaurant is located across the street from a beach area in a small shopping plaza. It's a lovey place. The restaurant itself is very nice, well decorated, and cozy. The service is fast and the food comes out extremely fast (freaky fast!). The food is very good but very spicy. I ordered medium spicy and it was very very very spicy. They have good Napa wines by the glass at very good prices.
