Varied menu, covering most Thai dishes, the Pineapple Rice is a must. Staff are always very friendly and service is usually good, but can be a bit slow at busy times. Putting that aside, great place for groups.

The food is really good and the ambience/environment is very cosy and nice. The only complain is the rude waiters/waitresses.

Waiting for waiters to bring my girl and I to an appropriate seat. it took around 3-5 mins although there were plenty of clear seats without reserve in front of us and different waiters kept requesting us to wait. Since I had experienced this many times before, I think this is their usual custom. One waitress mistakenly brought a coconut,... More

Was there with my girlfriend (after few friends told us how good their food are) and waited at entrance for like 5 minutes but nobody bother to welcome us and get a table . Restaurant was almost empty (4-5 guest ) 9pm plus so I guess busy is not an excuse . Will never go again.

This used to be our favourite thai food restaurant. Over the years, the standard of the food has dropped. Portions are good no doubt but generally the quality has deteriorated. Still, we continued to patronize this place until a very unfortunate experience put us off this place completely. Right after the food had been served and we were about tuck... More

Visited this place a few times now. On each and every occasion the staff have always been very accommodating to our needs. Food positions are generous. Choice is very good. Definitely a place to visit. Cannot recommend any one dish, they are all great.

Their tom yam is too spicy for me. I requested the waiter to add hot water to dilute the spiciness but what surprise me was they cook a new bowl of tom yam soup for me again. Really appreciate that. Other than that, food is nice. Ambience is nice. A nice place to bring friends here when they visit JB!
