The food both Chinese or Thai is consistently excellent, although I think the Thai is slightly ahead in quality, I would recommend steering in that direction. The staff are cheerful and attentive, and the decor traditional without being gaudy. All positive stuff.... On the negative... More

I simply love Thai food, so I tend to be quite picky when it comes to choose a restaurant. We had a lovely lunch consisting of red curry and traditional Pekin duck and it was delicious. Very friendly staff and a cozy place, a little bit small though. I highly recommend this place

It's a nice alternative to some of the pricier places in the area but the food was not good. Chargrilled food that was supposed to have seasoning in fact was overseasoned and not chargilled at all. The seafood was all overcooked and inedible. The Pad Thai was okay, but nothing amazing. Overall a disappointment in comparison to some of the... More
