Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the service was superb. The owner was warm and welcoming and went above and beyond to create a wonderful experience. The restaurant is lovely, with hand carved doors on the bathroom. We will definitely be coming back as we visit St. Croix frequently.

Great place to dine that a local friend living on the island recommended! We went as a large group and all ordered different things and had to chance to try almost everything on the menu and it was all amazing. All the small plates were great, the duck curry was fantastic as well as the short ribs, pork tenderloin, and... More

Upon entering, you can see that the owners take great pride in making your meal an experience to remember.

While dubbed a Thai Restaurant, there are other options offered... More

This is the best restaurant on St. Croix. When you enter through the door, you have left St. Croix and entered into an elegant Thai restaurant. If you have been in St. Croix for a while, this is a great way to get away. We come here every year and it always very enjoyable. It is professionally run, has excellent... More

Well I'll start with the positive - the food was delicious and authentic. If you are a fan of Thai or asian fusion - you won't be disappointed. Our server was also lovely and we appreciated her service. My only beef was the seating which is that obnoxious bench style seating where you are basically dining with your neighbors. We... More
