Perhaps I could be the only one, we had pad Thai and seems like this was not the best pad Thai I had, no trace of cashews, but service was great. If I come back, their service and friendly environment is what will bring me back. Hopefully they will improve on the dish I absolutely love.

Love Pimarn , beautiful food. Great atmosphere and service. Can get very busy. Friday or Saturday pays to make a table reservation. When very busy I have felt rushed to move on as they need table which is a shame. Can byo wine for a corkage.

The food was a little slow in coming after ordering which we guessed due to a busy lunch time trade. The food itself was good but not quite to our liking but... More

This place is awesome, good food, good service and the environment is perfect. Try the Gari puffs! The average dish costs around $17.50 and it's quite filling.

The food at Pimarn is amazing!!!! Not only that but the lady's do really try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
