Wife and I went coz super stressed. We were greeted with a foot bath and enjoyed great knot releasing session. Prices super competitive. The massage artists were professional - stress evaporated after that deep cleansing.

Authentic Thai experience. Skilled therapists. Nice people. If I need another massage, would I choose this one again? There are a host of more upmarket facilities available where I have experienced very good massages.
