We were a walk-in and found the flavours very delightful and well sized. The restaurant itself is nothing special but the size is good enough that won't wait for ages for your meal. The only down sides were that the meals all came out at different times so I had almost finished by the time my sister got her meal... More

I think new owners took over earlier this year, 2014. The service has improved and importantly the food is now as good as you will find in Canberra for a suburban Thai restaurant.

A group of nine of us dined here on a Saturday night. Despite the large group, they got our orders right, and everything came out at the right time (some people wanted their entrees served with mains, etc). The food was fantastic. I had the scallops for an entree just to try something different and was surprised and delighted. They... More

Warm on a cold canberra evening. Food was very fresh, tasty and as described on menu. Service was a little fast, but they got the message and left us to enjoy our coffee ( to full for dessert) In fact we were the last to leave, but we did not feel pressured to leave.

Arriving without reservation, fortunately we were able to be seated and enjoy another lovely meal. Entrée consisting of Thai Fish Cakes and scallops certainly hit the mark for starters. Our remaining dishes were Gaeng Pah Neua Sub (hot & spicy jungle curry with minced beef) and Goog Nang Fa (steamed king prawns with special chefs sauce in a clay pot),... More

Went here looking for somewhere cool to eat on a hot night. It's BYO and there's a wine shop next door. The restaurant is small so noise bounces off the walls. Despite that the ambience is cheerful and it's tastefully decorated. We were served quickly and efficiently. The food was flavoursome although the portions were on the small side. We... More

I couldn't believe how busy this place was.....and on a Sunday night too!!!! My friend and i ordered the spring rolls for entree . Very nice. Then for mains we ordered the coconut rice (ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS) and the curry beef and basil and chilli chicken. Quite nice indeed. We left feeling quite full and eager to go back again to...
