Probably one of the best place to have some Thai or continental food. Would recommend it to anyone who wishes to take some time off and go for a munch. Ideal time to visit would be somewhere before 8 pm - as the crowds storm in after that especially during the peak holiday seasons. Try the Green Thai curry for... More

Had a great time here. Great ambiance and service. The bottle of wine was lovely and the food was great. I do feel that we overpayed for what we got, but that's fine. I believe it's all part of the experience. It's a fine dining place so you're going to pay a bit more for what you get. Would recommend.

I was dining alone & I was really impressed with the service. Loved the food, tried a yellowish curry with seafood along with absolutely delicious seafood fried rice, washed... More
