“Terrible service, poor food and poor choices”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I brought my mother and my handicapped husband for lunch. They pushed my husband into a cramped corner and gave us two plates when there were three of us. The service was rude, we never got water and the tea was substandard.
I ordered the green curry which was not fresh (Dried mushrooms and precious little chicken), we also had the appetizer plate which was unappealing and overly fried.

When we went to pay, the waiter was very rude to my elderly mother insisting she pay cash and showed her where to leave a tip. Needless to say the tip was 0.

This restaurant has poor quality food, terrible prices and overcharges patrons. Stay away!

“Nice Thai/Vietnamese Restaurant in Elmvale area of Ottawa”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A nice, tiny restaurant with decent Thai dishes packed with fresh flavours. My aunt and I showed up within 30 minutes of closing, so I didn't really get a feel for the service...
