“Good thai, good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We found this recently, have enjoyed the food. The highlight is the pandan chicken. The green curry chicken was good, pineapple rice is good, and the fresh coconuts are delicious. It has a nice ambience, is very breezy and does make you feel as if you have stepped away from the business of Johor Bahru.

“Real Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Yam um sen love! But too hot. Because real Thai. I can eat but my friend couldn't eat.
If you need nothing hot you should offer to them. And Map is not fine. It need to go more west. Probably 50m west from New York hotel.

“Good Thai n local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Set within city limits, this restaurant in JB showcases Thai food - from Tom Yums to curries. The highlight would be the laid back village style architecture, a network of attap huts; some of these are elevated above ground for that lofty ambience. The pineapple fried rice is pretty good. Not exactly cheap but surely affordable. What I dislike most is the carpark area which is rather small. So you might have to park across the road at times. Situated opposite DNP plaza and on the same stretch as new York hotel, you will find this place nestled somewhere within this popular clubbing stretch. And it's open-air concept so i can't say about the insects n all that...

You feel like you are vacationing on an island once you entered this place. Nice place. nice food (especially their thai selections). I hate the mosquito though.
