“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The Thai food here is fantastic, especially the spring rolls which are made fresh in house.
Breakfast is also very tasty and a good value.

“Wow, Wow, Wow!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We just had dinner at this lovely little place and we were knocked out! Everything we had was so fresh and tasty, we're already talking about our next visit. I love green curry and this was as good as any I have ever had. We shared fresh rolls and chicken satay to start, both dishes were everything you hope they would be. My husband had the Mango Chicken and it was terrific. The service was friendly and prompt. It was a completely positive experience. We look forward to being regulars at this little gem. Thank you!

“Wide menu selection and open for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Visited for breakfast as we had been unable to get a seat for dinner on earlier visits. This is a fairly small space and it fills quickly. A good sign.

Service for breakfast was fast and efficient even though all tables were filled.

All items were very good. A great spot for breakfast with a good selection of items.

While the afternoon and evening menu has many Thai items there are also items you would find on a traditional diner/pub menu like fish and chips, steaks, etc.

There are now two small table outside under an awning for use during the good weather.

Well worth a visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner

“Was great the first time.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I , both vegetarians, went for dinner and had a great experience. The pad Thai was fresh and tangy and the vegetable curry was creamy with a kick. The second time we went to grab some take out, and unfortunately this wasn't such a great meal. Our pad Thai was missing the sprouts, peanuts and lime. Also since they don't list a vegetarian pad thai option they make it upon request. The regular pad Thai has shrimp, and chicken. They substitute a few measly pieces of carrot and a bit of broccoli in the veg version. More tofu would be great since you're charged the same for reg and veg dish. :-(
