Felt awkward

I've enjoyed this place in the past, but was disappointed on this visit. I showed up perhaps a little late for lunch, but I am still a customer I would think. I was seated very cheerfully, and was presented a menu. Once I made my selection, the server was gone. She didn't ask me for a drink, or... read more

I have been coming here long enough,that the staff says hello,and asks about my kids.Good size portions of well prepared thai classics.A couple of cold rolls,followed by a mango salad with chicken,then a steaming bowl of green thai curry,make a great lunch for two.Add a bottle of Wolf Blass Chard for under $30,and you got an afternoon delight.

I'm thinking they were having an off night because if it is like this there all the time they would take their "Tripadvisor" sticker off the door for fear of these reviews. We happened in as we were in the area for another reason and were looking for something other than a roadhouse. We love Thai food and all other... More

I have been here many times and most of the time the food is good but sometimes it is hit or miss. The service is not always the best but food seems to arrive fast enough even during busy times. The Pad Thai sometimes tastes more like ketchup so I no longer order it. The house spicy noodles are good.... More

The food is generally fine. But our experience was seriously overshadowed by the lack of cleanliness we were seeing in the dining room. The dining room is in serious need of a deep clean. We were there for a fairly early dinner around 4:30pm, so it wasn't even like we were there when it was busy. But we noticed food... More

We were seated quickly although this spot was very busy? Service was initially very prompt and we ordered drinks, appetizer and the meal. Appetizer (vegetable roll) was overdone. The meal was very good but our preordered 'sticky rice' did not arrive with the meal, in fact they had run out of it (6:45p.m.!). Neither the person who took our order... More

We come her for lunch or dinner quite often. Service is always good and food excellent. Looking forward to come back again for nice and healthy food.

Everything here is fine- I guess. But there is way better Vietnamese and Thai food to be had in Guelph. This place has no soul.

My fiancé ordered a soup with noodles and seafood. We were curious about the round looking balls so we asked our server. Said it was fish balls..ok cool. Then I asked what kind of fish? Server looked surprised and said "I don't know". Then I asked, "Can you ask the chef?"..we were still going to eat it and it smelt... More
