It’s ok . For sxm it’s ok . Nothing special . Just regular Thai food. The area is not the best. No ocean view . Tables in the garden are so hot and humid. Inside it’s dark and ac is working.

My wife and I wanted an outdoor dining experience with Great Thai food and service. Our wants were wonderfully exceeded !!! The waiter was charismatic, explained the menu and provided fast efficient service. The bar tender joined us for a few minutes and accentuated the...bar menu too. Great place and we will happily go back again!More

The Thai food is excellent, prepared nicely, very good portions, fair prices. I have been here several times and consistently good. Friendly efficient staff and the bar tender is a hoot. This place is located on 2nd floor of the Del Sol building (elevator available)...Really pretty courtyard seating or you can sit inside which is pretty with the wood and win . -Huge wine selection, Awesome unique martinis that Julio makes. They do a Friday happy hour 4-6 with half off appetizers. Suggest making reservation for this place or you might not get a seat if you just show up.More

We have enjoyed Avantika since they first opened in Simpson Bay and our recent visits were no exception. The best Thai we can find in the area and good sized servings. We were sorry to see long time manager Mark has left to return to...his home country and also some other staff changes but the service and the food were as great as always. We wish the new manager success and look forward to continue enjoying Anantika.More

Had dinner here in Feb 2020. New restraunt in a rebuilding center. food was Fresh and delicious. The Tom Kha soup was great and easily served three. The mussels were a bit chewy and slightly overcooked. The seabass in red curry was out of this...world. The mango sticky rice desert was ok, but the mango was not quite ripe.More
