Great food,

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

We ordered the Spicy Pad Thai (#29) and the House special fried rice (#30). The Pad Thai was gluey and had no flavour or heat. The fried rice was overly greasy but better than the pad Thai. Service was horrible, even when the restaurant was not busy. Then baby shrimp were even raw and chewy. This place reviews greats reviews... More

Stopped for lunch here on the way home from an outing as we loved the food in the past and today was no exception. I had the curry shrimp and chicken with spicy wild rice. It was very good. Although I added the left over sauce that was left over from our spring rolls as it needed more sauce. I... More

The food here is some of the best Thai food I have ever had. There is a lot on the menu that is not spicy, which suits me fine, and there are many delicious dishes that I haven’t seen at other Thai restaurants. They have a crispy fish in peanut sauce that is to die for. The curry is lovely,... More

Service is usually okay, food is always great. Seating is very limited though so you may end up waiting ~60 minutes for a table.

This restaurant has come highly recommended in a lot of hamilton magazines. That is what prompted me to try it. I was extremely disappointed. The pad thai was dry and it wasn't at all spicy as they said it would be. The cold rolls were terrible as well. I can't believe how many good reviews this restaurant has ......my thai... More

love, love, love this little restaurant. Great food and service. A treat for the senses at a reasonable cost. Doesn't hurt that I live around the corner. This place never disappoints and I have frequented it many times over 6 years. A must try in my opinion.
