Visiting Old Town from NY and wanted to eat down by the water and enjoy a nice meal with family. We went on a busy Friday night but were immediately seated with 3 adults and one munchkin at a table upstairs by the window looking out over the water. Friendly service and the drinks and appetizers of fresh garden rolls... More

Took an out of town (out of country) friend here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We got an excellent table (on the second floor) by the big window overlooking the water. They have the best location on the street (corner lot closest to the water) Food was pretty good - no complaints there. Wait staff could do with some... More

Food was quite tasty, however they were rather slow with service. The place also did not capture the right dining ambience as the lighting is too dim. Moderately priced.

My wife and I have eaten here a few times over the years. I've had two or three pretty good meals here, and one pretty mediocre one. It is frankly not close to the best Thai food that I have had... but to me ok Thai is still pretty good. So why come here when there is so much really... More

We were a party of five. My daughter recommended the place. She is a local. We all ordered different food just so we could taste as much as possible. All of us were satisfied with our different orders. I was very satisfied( I was paying)with the prices. Less than $80.00 for five. The top floor has an excellent river view... More

I had a curry dish that was very good. Portions were large and the food seemed very fresh. The restaurant is reasonabley priced given... More

The Pad Thai is delicious; the Spring Rolls could use a lighter, less tough and crunchy wrap - but they were still tasty. My husband ordered the eggplant dish, which was slightly soggy but wonderfully put together with fresh basil and ginger. The service was attentive yet unobtrusive. Location is wonderful! At the foot of King Street directly across from... More
