Clean tasty food

This small place is a gem. Tastefully decorated, this Thai restaurant is elegant and ethnic at the same time. Good Thai food. Not greasy.

Food is still good but not the service or the price They charge for rice and if you want spicy 3 dollar extra per person Serving size for 18 dollar pad thai is so small. Go someplace else, trust me

My friends brought me here for a belated birthday dinner and it was a perfect, casual time. We shared the spring rolls & BBQ calamari; both were good. I had the tamarind duck and it's probably THE most delicious duck dish I've ever had!! My friends had pad Thai & drunken man noodles which were also good. The servers are... More

I loved my dish (although medium spice in this place is extra extra hott in my book). My sister however did not like her dish and told the waitress and she did not give her any option other than to pay for another dish. I have never heard this from any other restaurant before. Naturally, I was put off by... More

Had I know they were this good, I would have ordered a whole plate of them. I had the Chicken Pad Thai and it was excellent. Fresh... More

We were treated very well and the service was efficient and attentative. Food was tasty and pricing was absolutely decent. We were pleasently surprised by the combination of quality and pricing. The aircon was too low, but they actually adjusted it when we asked for it.

Simply the best, every dish is amazing, but the best of the best is here. The service food and everything is just way out of control. Thinking Jaya, makes me salivate.

It was disgusting and disappointing because we like the place. they offered to make another order, but we choose not to, so we just paid for our... More
