The food is absolutely yummy, the service polite and attentive. A restaurant that stimulates the taste buds and makes you just wait for it to open. It has just opened for the season :)

We first discovered this restaurant during our stay two years ago (in a different location). and loved it for its fairly authentic Thai food. We made a point of finding its new location, and looked forward to the meal. The first disappointment was the location in a dreary path beside the Mira Hotel.. there were a few tables beside the...

I visit this restaurant every year, often more than once. It is consistently of a very high standard. Whether you go for the Thai dishes or the amazingly tender steak you will not be disappointed. I particularly love the fried prawns and the mussels as starters. The crispy beef tenderloin is great. This year the star dish was pork in... More

This is not just a top class restaurant offering Thai food at its best having been to Thailand and cooked by the owners wife who is Thai, but the best steaks ever (meat is selected & brought in from Kanartika by the restaurants owner) according to my partner who has tried various steaks throughout Goa & other parts of India...

Tucked away, down a busy side street in Calangute, is a little Thai restaurant. Beautifully authentic food in a lovely setting. We spoke to the owner as we tucked in to our delicious food as we were very curious when we heard his German/dutch accent. His wife is the main chef, a very respected lady in the industry, with numerous... More

I ordered some prawns with some sort of thai curry. It was a take away and i must say it had great taste. Im not a very big thai food fan but the things which i ordered were good. Its located on the main road so it doesnt have a great location but the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice.
