“Substandard food and service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

My buddy was a bit fed up with Thai food, then we had a dinner here.
Environment is muggy where street side table is marginally acceptable.
I ordered Dry Martini which was not served in short cocktail glass but in whisky glass with a couple of ice cubes. A couple of minutes later, olive was added.
Pasta was far from aldente and overcooked with basil paste.
A plate of dessert was overwhelming in quantity but scanty in quality.
At the end of dinner, the bill was 30-50% higher than that of Thai food dinner in high class hotel in Tao.

“Very good, worth the extra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

Food here is excellent - homemade pasta and pizza, steak imported from NZ and the atmosphere is relaxed. Worth finding if you want a break from the excellent Thai food on offer elsewhere.
