Buffet Style Lunch!

The lunch buffet was from 1030-1400. For $11.95 the food was good. The staff were friendly. My only complaint was that it was packed.

Stopped in here my last night on Guam. Didn't want to be too adventurous with 24 hours of flying ahead of me so I stuck with the classic Pad Thai. I got the medium sauce since I do eat a lot of spicy foods, but don't like my face to be numb from the heat. This was a good (or... More

As is the case for many establishments in the Tumon bay area, this is another restaurant that pleases the masses. However, if you are a genuine Thai food aficionado, you will be disappointed.

No complaints about our visit. The food was good. It was reasonable and plentiful. We ate around 5:30 and had no difficulty getting a table. The place is popular and tables filled up rapidly.

The food was great, though it was very crowded and the service was a little slow. We had cocktails, and they weren't very strong but they were okay. I had the cashew chicken and it was amazing!

I my opinion this is the best place to eat in all of the island. The food is amazing and the service is even better. I have never had a bad meal in this establishment and I just ate there for the fourth time this year. Try the fried marigold and or green mango salad they are perfect. The cost... More

We are locals and passed by this place many times. Our first experience was excellent. We've been back a few times since. The buffet choices is good... More

I have gone to this restaurant many times in the past, and I had never been disappointed. I am a usual customer, sometimes coming in 3 days in a row. That's how good the food was. Recently, the food hasn't been delicious anymore. I ordered take out and the employee that took my order didn't even know the dishes on... More
