I eat here frequently on my visits to Cebu, the food is good and very tasty without being necessarily authentic or original, I would judge it as a westernised blend of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine in the same way that UK Indian foods bears little relation to the original.. Having said that, the fresh spring rolls and the green chicken... More

The vegetarian section of their menu has a few good options, including fried beancurd and red curry. I was trying to eat healthy, so requested two of the salads made veggie (they normally included meat). The waitress was kind enough to point out that the dressings normally contain fish sauce, and the chef made me a different dressing that was... More

Although taste and presentation is excellent, place & ambience really nice, the servings are quite small, not even enough for two people with "normal" appetite:) you have to shell out more money to fill your stomach because of the tiny servings.

Food was ok. Reasonably priced too. Their sticky rice with mango was verrrrrrrrry yum, yum, and their citrus drink which they concocted was something different and worth trying, but their staff was a bit noisy.

The only thing close to Thai food was the fact that we are in South East Asia. As for Thai food, nothing like it. Very poor effort.

I would agree with a few of the comments above. The food is good but I wouldn't say authentic (I've been to Thailand and Vietnam). Some dishes actually taste good, some are so-so. But what bothers me the most is the terrible service. Everytime I visit, it seems that their staff is either blind, deaf or just plain inept at... More
