Had heard about this place and thought we would try something new. Not sure what to say about the staff, came in and stood there, waitress standing twenty feet away asked two?, I nodded and she dropped two menus on a table and walked away. We presumed she meant for us to go to table and we did. Other then... More

I keep forgetting that basic Indonesian/Thai dishes are (in their own country) not exotic but just pedestrian offerings. In ordering Nasi Goreng, I forgot it was basically fried rice. The food is average. I've had better in this price range. I have no problem with the sparse Zen type of decor, but the plants have to go. Beside me on... More

We use to stop here often but have moved away from this area and were so happy to be in the area again today, and had to have lunch here. It has such a great peaceful calming atmosphere and they heave excellent food. In the past, we ordered a supper with dessert - all great food. Today we ordered duck... More

First this place is beautifully decorated. Now I get it is an Asian restaurant, but the language barriers can cause issues. You need to make sure if you have any allergies do not assume it's not in there if the menu does not list it. Though that a side food was unbelievable. So good, you just wanted more and more....

Huge servings at a small restaurant. All 4 people in our party ordered different items. We were all stuffed at the end of our meal. The food was a pleasant mix of Thai, Vietnamese & Chinese. The spicing was flavourful but not close to real Thai (as in Thailand, where I have been 3 or 4 times). I had a... More

Me and a friend went for lunch on March 18th, it was very busy which is always a good sign at a restaurant. The lunch menu is excellent and the prices are very reasonable, I have the crispy chicken, it came with a soup, rice and vegetables, all for $8, and it was really good. It will definitely a place...

Excellent food and value. Hidden secret on Hamilton Mountain. Soft drinks are served in the can which takes away from the dining out experience. Consider takeout.

Have come here twice in about a month with two different individuals. This restaurant has dropped in overall quality from a few years ago. Service was poor, wait staff both times were abrupt and just short of rude. The quality of the dishes varies considerably. The soups are not very good, for example at both visits the Tom Yum soup...

This place is small and is usually packed and I've never eaten in, but we get takeout twice a month or so since it is conveniently close to our house. I'm not too picky when it comes to Thai food, but this place is as good or better than any similar place I have tried. The food is always hot,... More
