I have heard wonderful things about this restaurant and must say overall was very good. After reading previous reviews on this site I felt much more comfortable in what to order. First we had the Spring Rolls and they were perfectly crispy and flavorful with a nice lite dipping sauce. Then we had the Chicken Pad Thai and the Cashew... More

This may sound harsh but the experience was horrible from the server being rude, throwing our cutlery on the table in a pile, the food was either over cooked or it was way over spiced. I have eaten at approximately 30 thai restaurants and this was the worst! Would not recommend period!!!

Staying just opposite so ate there last night - after checking TA of course! As others warned, we could not eat it all. Delicious light spring rolls - huge! Best Massamun beef - the sauce was perfect consistency & flavour. Chicken PadThai was perfect too, not gluggy, tender chicken, light noodles, good flavour. Wished we could have taken home the...

Wonderful Thai dishes and Chinese-style dishes (e.g., sweet and sour prawn) as well. Our server could not have been more attentive in describing dishes, providing extra rice and making sure everything was OK, without being intrusive. He made us feel like welcomed guests, which all top-notch restaurants do or, at the very least, strive to achieve.

My wife and I frequently get take out from this Halifax gem. The food is always exceptional and good value. Whether eating in or taking out we have never been disappointed. Favourites include the red curry noodle soup which has become one of our all time favourite comfort foods. The pad Thai also has the perfect balance between sweet, salty,... More

Had one of many great meals here tonight. Started with the spring rolls for an appetizer to try something new. They were great, not at all greasy, and easy to tell they are prepared fresh. I had the shrimp pad thai (although it's always a tough decision as every single thing on the menu always catches my eye.) Ten or... More

I hate to admit this, but about the only Thai food I eat is pad thai with chicken - and their's was excellent! Portion are way too big, very tasty, and exceptionally good service. A winner on all accounts.

Ate here yesterday for lunch. There were three of us and we each ordered a different lunch special and shared. We had a Green Curry with vegetables, chicken with cashews and chicken with ginger. All were delicious. The spring rolls that came with each dish was hot, crispy and not greasy. Each dish was plentiful and the vegetables were fresh.... More

Finally....I found a restaurant in Nova Scotia that made my meal spicy as requested! I get tired of asking for extra, extra Thai spicy hot and ending up with medium. The food was delicious and flavorful. Granted, I did have to add some chiles to it...but they had real chiles...so I was happy! Nice variety on the menu and the... More
