A Clean and a very good tasty Thai Food . A value for money restaurant at the center of Ocean Terminal Harbor city Mall and hence very convenient for those checked in to Marco Polo Hotels ( Marco Polo Hongkong,Marco polo Prince, Marco Polo Gateway )

“A good local Thai restaurant with a big menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011

OK, I am pretty much a Thai restaurant snob, so with that hat on I would have rated the restaurant a 3, but I am looking at the restaurant as a place for those of us who live in the Hung Hom, TST East, etc. location. It is a short walk from my apartment and next door to the local Outback steakhouse. There are three other locations and I expect them to be pretty similar.

My wife and I showed up without reservations at 8:30 on a Holiday Saturday night and were lucky to get in. It is a big restaurant but was packed. We got a table and had relatively slow service, but competent. We weren't really hungry and I have to admit I was surprised at the size of the Satay I ordered as an appetizer. Huge and delicious. The other dishes were very good and the prices reasonable, but no bargain by Kowloon side local prices.

The menu is large and I will go back!
