First visit back in 10 years. Service was fast and friendly but the food tasted like it had been cooked the night before and reheated for us. The coconut shrimp arrived in under 5 minutes and was too tough and dry to even get off the skewer. The rest of the food was lacklustre. We won't go back. Very disappointed.

The service was very good as mentioned by other reviewers. I was surprised by how quickly the food came. It had to have been prepared ahead and basically put on our plates. My pad Thai was OK but more like you'd get from a mall food court. I expected it to be better because this was a sit-down restaurant with... More

The food was okay, I thought it lacked in flavour and size and the amount you pay for the portion you receive is a little over the edge. However, the wait staff actually took into consideration that I had a peanut allergy and brought out a peanut-free pad thai!

The food was delicious. We had ordered incorrectly and our lovely server looked after us and brought us what we needed to make a memorable dinner.

What a great place to eat we couldn't find fault from start to finish. The server was very attentive and helped with selecting a good balance of tastes and explaining the heat of the various dishes. Service was quick and the food was the best Thai we have eaten anywhere. The meat and fish was tender and cooked to perfection... More

Have been here a few times and it's always an enjoyable experience. Visited recently for a dinner with friends knowing that the broad menu would have enough choices for everyone to find something they like, including some vegetarians in the group. Good service, good food. I particularly enjoyed the spicy pork chops on this last visit, and the banana spring... More

Lured in by the ads outside... we ended up getting a couple of noodle dishes. They were OK, but a bit stodgy. While it was definitely OK - no issues with service, cleanliness or anything - something about the place didn't speak to us. Haven't had the urge to go back.

I had eaten years earlier here and remembered a wonderful dining experience. Unfortunately, I took my family here yesterday and it was memorable, but not in a positive way. The server, although friendly, seemed to be on an upselling mission, telling us we were not ordering enough food and was suggested the highest price dishes on the menu. The Tom... More

The décor of this restaurant is lovely. They offer to take your coat when you arrive which would be a great service when it's cold outside. We had booked for a party of about 10 or so and were seated in a semi private area. We had 2 servers during our meal and they provided good service to bring the... More
