“we always return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

When traveling to Toronto, we always stop here for lunch. The food is excellent, the prices great, the atmosphere delightful, and the service fantastic. The squid with lime, vegetables, and sea salt (#440 !) is to die for. The shrimp is always fresh and delightful.

“Love, love, love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The food was fabulous. The prices are reasonable, and there is usually food to take home. Love the fresh spring rolls, pad thai, and the tom yum soup.

“Not friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

My husband is legally blind. The staff were rushing us to order and we felt that we were being rushed to complete our meal, however, it was not busy. Also the food was just ordinary.

“Tasty Thai and Vietnamese food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Food was very spicy if you wanted it hat way (more authentic, especially for Thia food). Decor is a bit plain but the service was good and we would go back. They also have take-out and delivery.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The menu was hard to understand if you don't understand the food. What we had was recommened by the waiter and we were satisfied with the experience. Friends recommeded the place, but I don't think I will return
