Great food. The set menus are value for money especially for those (who like us) never tried Thai food before. The food was ample, and in fact we could not eat all that was served, which was a pity. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, unfortunately we were seated in the least appealing part of the restaurant do we could not... More

Great food and service is wonderful and very attentive. Perhaps a little overpriced for Malta, but it is really lovely, nicely decorated place. I will recommend it for birthday, anniversary or some special occasion.

The layout of the place was fantastic. Like going through a tropical garden with tables well separated from each other. The food was wonderful along with the service. I really liked the cocktails and the whimsical glasses they served them in. It also has a gift shop and we did buy some blue elephant tea pots.

This has to be one of the best Thai restaurants I have ever eaten in. The décor and layout were perfect. While being busy the tables were far enough apart that you felt comfortable holding a conversation. The food was excellent, a good variety of typically Thai food. The service was excellent with the waiters being efficient and courteous.
