“Relaxing and divine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Thai food that was prepared perfectly, and served unassumingly. The dining-by-the-bay is always a plus, and the owner stopped by to make sure we were satisfied! Highly recommend!

“Enjoyed it very much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Even though it was raining like mad, we still were able to enjoy good Thai food. Went with my niece and had a very good time. Cant remember the name of my plate, it was noodles with chicken and peanuts (HA!) The waiters were very nice and the décor was very pretty and modern. Wish it would have been sunny to sit on the terrace overlooking the bay. I guess it was early since we where the first ones there (bit before 6). Also found good prices on the wines.

“Good Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Nice atmosphere and view at the bay. Food is good, a bit pricy though. Make sure you reserve a table. And bring repellent, because you're on the waterside.

“Awesome Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Ate here on the first night of our week long stay in Simpson bay. Well worth the walk from the Royal Palm where we were staying. The food was amazing and great portions. To put it in perspective my brother in-law who is Thai was with us and he declared it was the best Thai food he has had outside of his mothers home cooking. Go and enjoy.

“The reviews are true! You need to eat here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The food was excellent - we had seafood curry & seafood stir fry, both with medium spice. So yummy! Service was also excellent. Highly recommend if you like Thai food.
