I stop by any time I'm in the area. I only wish they were open everyday! I've had similar dishes at other restaurants in Saint John, but they just don't compare. They nail that true Thai 'spicy' that requires kleenex at every table.

Great view by reversing falls. Went with my parents and the portion sizes were huge. Each dish had a different, unique taste. The green and red Thai curries were fantastic. Will definitely be back again.
