The food quality is good. The dessert platter is very refreshing and great. We found the lighting to be too dark, can't see our food properly. Defeats the purpose... More

Been here twice and there's not much improvement with the food. The pad thai was still under expectation. The pandan chicken is not fragrant and flavorful at all. The only thing I like during both my visit is the lemongrass tea. The flavor is awesome. Hopefully they can improve the quality of the dishes since this restaurant is meant to... More

Service is good, and the waiting time when you order until the food is served is short. There are quite a lot of choices of menu. I tried noodle salad and mango salad as appetizer, it fresh and delicious. However the Thom Yam is a bit let down since the shrimp is not fresh, although the herb is strong and... More

Came in late in the afternoon at 8pm, there were only three tables occupied, which made me wondered is there something wrong with this restaurant. The staff were nice though they looked tired, we could still see a smile in their faces. While waiting for the orders we were served by a starters - nothing special with the taste. Speaking... More

I love to go here to spend my alone time with great taste Thai cuisine. The restaurant is always quiet, although sometimes they have bunch of tables occupied, but the overall atmosphere is still gonna make you calm. The food is expensive but no need to doubt the taste and portion. You pay for what you get.
