If you are looking for a wannabe "hot" spot and you don't expect good food or service, then this is your place to be. But please stay away if you are looking for good asian food and good hospitality service. First of all, the place is situated in Antwerp, but the staff doesn't speak the local language. Secondly, the staff... More

Some of the best Thai food I have had for some time, but doesn't top Sukothai in Leeds. Not the usual Thai dishes and lack of Pad Thai made some of the menu inaccessible for someone who has issues with chilli. Service was off hand at best, had to attract attention more than once. Wine list wasn't great - ask... More

No surprise there, comments are accurate. If you don't draw the staff's attention don't expect to get any... The food is OK, the wine list very poor. Unique atmosphere in the Antwerp scene though.

Came here with the family for dinner on a Sat eve. The place was full. After reading other reviews on this site, we feared the worst in terms of service and our expectations were generally met. The food was generally ok - though nothing special. The service was slow and erratic. I would not go back.

Friends of us booked a table here for the 4 of us and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was great, the service a little slow, but when you have good company it doesn't matter too much. An old man fell down and the waiter helped him and even helped him too the toilet and back, which we though was... More

First time round, was a very pleasant surprise - good ambience, tasty food, god service, polite staff. Second visit was a disaster!!!!!!!!!!!! Took them 1.5h to serve the cold main course (after going to the them to complain), the waiter was very rude and the manageress totally incompetent/non-existent. If you are prepared to take the chance, give it a try... More

Decent Thai restaurant located inside a warehouse style building that has been re-modeled into a lounge/bar/restaurant. High points for the ambiance/decor, average to good food, but the service on busy days can be absolutely terrible! The waiting staff is very friendly, but they seem to be over worked on the busy weekends. On occasions, we've had to wait for up... More

Came here again because we were invited here by friends. The place has a nice atmosphere, but that's all there is to say. Very long wait to get our drinks, how difficult can it be to get a bottle of champagne to the table? Also for the food, the waiting time was extremely long, and the food did not arrive... More

Really great food...It was a Saturday night so they were nearly full. We asked how long the wait would be for food because we were a bit pushed for time (1.5 hours) and wanted to know if we could fit a starter in too. The waiter made sure we had both courses on time. He was polite and friendly and... More

Service is terrible and completely chaotic (we had to ask everything at least three times, had to wait 1,5 hours between dishes, took half an hour and five reminders to bring us another bottle of wine, ...). Badly managed. Quality of the dishes ranged from ok over poor to lousy. Great lounge atmosphere. Lot's of beautiful people. Trendy place. Interior... More
