Classic shanghai restaurant in the same vein as Lost Heaven. Great atmosphere. Decent, but certainly not great Thai food. Nice garden, as well for good weather. Make sure to reserve the old building, as opposed to the newer annex.

The place looks great and it is also famous. The staff is friendly, but can be trained a bit better. The food did not come at the same time.... Which is terrible when you have dinner together. The spicy minced chicken is GREAT,... However the rest is just OK.

Took my husband to dinner last night for his birthday. Not our first time and never lets us down with their incredible bursts of flavor with each dish. Never can order just a few dishes so try several as they make great lunches the next day!

This restaurant is definitely one of the best Thai food I have ever experienced! You have a large choice : fish, rice, meat, spicy, not spicy, etc. You also have nice cocktail along your food! Waiter and waitress are welcoming! Toilets are clean! The only thing is maybe the price which is a bit too high for Shanghai, but I... More

Went there with a friend of mine after she suggested it, but only based on experiences from friends of friends. So basically no expectations. Luckily we booked a table because on a Friday night it is almost impossible to get one by luck. Although it looked very touristy, many locals still go there. The food was great, everything we ordered... More

Iwas entertaining some foreign guests and wanted to let them have a taste of Chinese wine. We ask the waitress and she quoted an exhorbitant corkage price(more expensive than the wine).We ask to talk to the Manager who was even more rude and told us that if we do not like it, they do not need our business. We were... More

This Thai land mark in Shanghai have too many customers to keep his authentic original touch. "We Shanghai people never go there only when foreigners visit we book this place." Food average bot not special. Environement still fascinating.

The place has nice atmosphere and good service. I ordered the Coconut Prawns and what a mistake. First the portions are very some for the high prices at this place. You just get (3) prawns with this dish and my three were over cooked and the shells stuck to the fish. They were very hard to peel. Very messy dish.... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time and was very happy to find such a good Thai restaurant in Shanghai after being here for more than 2 years. It's quite pricy and portions are small but the food is excellent. Service staff is also very courteous and attentive. I will come back again.
