Expansive menu of Thai and Vietnamese offerings, we had the tofu curry and the vegetarian basil tofu - both delicious. The staff was friendly and brought extra seasoning to increase the hotness of my dish. Conveniently located, we sat in the window and watched pedestrians wander by while enjoying our dinner. We spent around $40 for two people and that... More

Have eaten here a few times and it is usually full which is a good indication of the quality of the meals. Plan to return.

This unpretentious little spot is exactly what you want in an ethnic restaurant. Minimal but attractive decor. Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious food beautifully presented. As an added benefit it's only a few steps from The Waverley Inn, Halifax's charming boutique hotel

I am not sure how a place like this gets good reviews. Part of my meal was actually microwaved. I watched them do it. Food was terrible. Service was good. Place is dirty. I guess there aren't many places to compare it. If you have eaten at a good place in Van or TO then this will disappoint.

We love this little gem. Nothing fancy is how I would describe it but the food, the service and the value is always there. The owner is usually working and is always pleasant and welcoming. Even though we have never won her draw :–º

I love Thai and just recently discovered this restaurant although I've driven by it for years. The food is fantastic. Their is more meat and chicken in the curries and dishes than I have ever seen in Thai restaurants. The veggies are bright and crisp and fresh. It takes almost 40 minutes for take out so order ahead of time... More

The food was average, the atmosphere is lacklustre, service was average - if they put the right energy into this restaurant it could be good, but little would need to be done to introduce a better noodle bar to Halifax.

Visited in early November as was staying nearby. Great happy service and good food. Had the vermicelli with grilled pork and enjoyed every bite.

Recommended to us by a friend months ago, we finally got around to dropping by in the middle of October. The three of us had fairly high expectations that were still surpassed. Fresh, delicious Thai food, not the watered-down version that is often proffered in westernised restaurants. We had curries all round (pineapple chicken, red and green, respectively), and they...
