The title says it all as the meal and service were second to none. Of course we all know that you sometimes get what you pay for and even though this establishment is a bit spendy, it is phenomenal... just wish I could afford to go here more often !

We arrived in Christiansted late afternoon to do some shopping and wanted to eat before we went back to Frederiksted. Around 5:10 we checked to see if the restaurant was open and were told no not until 5:30. BUT, then she did the perfect thing and invited us to go ahead and come in and have a drink at the... More

The restaurant's ambience is very trendy with a strong Thai influence. It was obvious that considerable time, effort, and expense went into the décor, which was surprisingly unexpected in St. Croix. The service was impeccable. We were made to feel very welcome. The massaman curry and pad Thai were excellent, as were the wines. Arthur, the owner, was very kind... More

Went here because of the positive reviews and had the worst pad thai I have ever eaten. Service was slow and the waiter never even went over the "specials" for the night (over heard him giving the specials to another couple as we waited for our check).

So the owner of this establishment discourages mediocre reviews by flaming guests that leave anything but stellar reviews. This is NOT an acceptable business practice. So feel free - flame away! I'm resistant. So let me start by saying that the presentation is stunning. Everything from the decor to the place settings just perfect. Ordered a noodle dish, a pad... More

There are maybe five good places to eat locally, but this is the only great one. All our meals were excellent, service excellent and the actual setting of the restaurant: excellent. What made out evening though was the utter class of the owner. We had a problem with our credit card on payment, the usual travellers lament when purchasing too... More
