Restaurant review

Located in Richmond Hill in a shopping plaza, you need to make reservation if you want to get in on time, very busy on weekends and at dinner time, packed with people. Great service, superb food,good presentation, lovely interior . Highly recommended. Smoothies are great. Desert menu is limited

This used to be my favourite Thai restaurant in the region (as good Thai restaurants are hard to find... there are plenty of Vietnamese/Thai restaurants but few that are strictly Thai) However, the past few times that I went, the food quality has been slipping. The food no longer tastes as good as it used to, the Tom Yum Soup... More

I have been looking around for good Thai Food for a number of years but couldn't find any that really suits my taste. A restaurateur friend recommends this restaurant to me recently. This restaurant is located in a busy shopping "SmartCenter" with a Wal Mart and supermarket. Parking is a little tight even when we arrived at around 5pm on... More

Service was very good - they checked in often and met our needs. The food was SO good! We had the thai green beef curry, curry vermicilli noodles, fried rice, pad thai, peanut curry... It was all very good. We will definitely visit again!

Don't know how this place has such a good rating... Customer service was horrible, people were down right rude! And the food, the food was almost all inedible and expensive. We've had Thai food from the grocery store that was better. DO NOT EAT HERE

Been here several times and has become my wives and my go to spot when we are craving some good thai food. Consistent and delicious, their go to are green curry and their cashew chicken. Also the basil fried rice is a great choice for a rice! Ambience is great, a bit woody but still a nice calming feeling. Recommend... More

Friends treated me for my birthday. The best dish was the Thai Beef with green beans. We ordered Prawns with assorted veggies. Prawns were more like the size of shrimps. Pad Thai was good. Pineapple fried rice came in a scooped out pineapple boat. Size of dishes are on the smaller side.

This is a quick lunch on the go...they serve it in 10-15mins. Everything on the lunch special menu is good, it come with soup and a spring roll for $10-$12, great buy! Much better and healthier than McD (nastiness!) parking is the only problem tho, it's a very busy plaza and high school is across the street. Can't go wrong!... More
