Average Thai restaurant. Food is quite ok. Service is not very friendly. We had a bowl of rice included into bill, which we never saw on the table. In general may be a good place for Thai food lovers, but don't expect much from service.

I have had takeaway twice now from this restaurant and both times the food was so delicious. the best thai I have ever tasted in the world. I have been to Thailand but this was so much better. Well worth the price.

I had a few friends recommend this restaurant and then when concierge at the hotel also said the same thing I decided I must try this restaurant. Reviews are quite good. Location is at Crown Towers Hotel. For those not sure its next door to the famous "slingshot" and there is the Palm Av Tram Stop out front. I started... More

This was a lucky find on a really wet night and the first interesting looking restaurant we could find near our hotel. To be honest we were so drenched we would have gone in anywhere to keep dry so it was a really pleasant surprise to find this place. The decor is all dark heavy wood statues, carvings and furniture... More
