Great flavours with an element of difference from most Thai restaurants. It seems more regional perhaps, and the menu is a little more interesting than average. Prices are good, flavours also are good. A definite recommend.

We simply can not believe we have never heard of this place till now. We are mad lovers of Thai food, and this place was absolutely fabulous! The food is perfect - fresh, flavoursome, authentic and so delicious we would have found it very easy to over-indulge. Lovely waitresses, food was quick, and the portions were generous. We will be...

This was surprising, I was not expecting much when coming into the restaurant, as I had never heard of it before. However, I was pleasantly surprised the décor was gorgeous and the atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing. We had won tons for entrée and they were one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted! I have never tried... More

We were there today (9/11/12) for lunch, and the food was really hard to better. Entree of curry puffs and spring rolls were crisp and flavoursome without any hint of oiliness, and the mains were nearly perfect. My wife likes the food without heat at all, and I love it when my nose runs and the perspiration tingles my scalp... More

This was one of our favourite Thai haunts in Geelong, but our last two visits were disappointing. Served by amateur scruffy waiters, no water, only 3 glasses on the table (for 4), we were asked to keep our entree cutlery for the main course because they had run out (not busy!) and had to ask several times for our wine...

I was not expecting much from a restaurant hidden behind a suburban stripmall. But was very pleasantly surprised. We shared a number of dishes. The massaman curry was intense rich and succulent. The pad grapow fresh, light and delectable. The prawn green curry was also delicious. Moderately priced. Pleasant and engaging service. Well worth a visit.

We went here with friends, the food was good, but the service was quite slow considering there weren't many people in the restaurant, unfortunately curry puffs were off the menu (again) and felt very uncomfortable having to go out into a not very well lit laneway to use the ladies! This is a very small restaurant, but think maybe there... More
