We stopped by for a dinner one night and found the waitress to be rather stern and indifferent. The food was really just so-so. We did like the fact that the placemats came with crayons to draw on though.

We decided to visit this place after reading positive and stated this place as vegan reviews. It was a huge disappointment. The place is not vegan, they can cook for you vegetarian if you ask, but all the dishes are very greasy. Nothing special, twice more expensive than other vegetarian restaurants around, and you have to pay for water. If... More

After a few poor meals further up the street, I was hoping that some Thai food would be better. The phad thai main was pretty good, along with the satay, but the crab wontons were still slightly frozen (or else just very cold) in the middle. Not good. Thankfully after I told the staff they came back piping hot.

I've never been to anywhere like this, I loved the fact you could doodle on your place mat while you wait for you food, a really lovely unique thing about the place. The food was okay, my boyfriends meal was nicer than mine, but I'd definitely return to try more of the menu

Good Thai food, but also good omelettes. Pretty good prices too. And service is pretty prompt. No complaints. Ask for some crayons to draw on their place mats.

Do yourself a favor and come to this place. Great food, good location, price is cheap and the staff is very nice and kind. I give it 10/10. (Good for vegeterians too!)

It's a nice ambiance here, playing cool music, art on the walls and the place mats are a sheet of paper on which you can make your own drawing, with pens provided.... good idea! Service also was pretty good. The only problem for me here was the food. I ordered a Tom Yum soup for 40,000 which tasted OK but... More

We were the only people in here and the atmosphere was flat. Ok average food, not sure where the great reviews come from.
