This small restaurant is our GO TO for anytime. Delicious Vietnamese/Thai style food. Great for selection and catering. Drop by for Tom Yum soup or Mango Salad. Portions are generous and prices very reasonable.

This is our "go to" lunch venue. The food is amazing and the service is quick (just what we need for a one hour lunch). Heartily recommend the Crispy Chicken with the Peanut Sauce

It was my husband and my first time there and we were not disappointed. The waitress was very friendly, the restaurant was nice and the food was amazing. The price was very reasonable. We look forward to returning in the near future.

This family run well established restaurant in the quaint downtown Galt area of Cambridge has been a mainstay for our family for a number of years now. They make great food, always hot and they never fail to get our order correct. For both dine in and take out I highly recommend you give them a try.

Went back again to have the best roast duck in town. The vegetables are always fresh, the wine selection is small but reasonably priced, and the decor has been upgraded. The place is always packed, a good sign, so make a reservation. The price for two of us, 2 soups and 2 entree's plus a bottle of wine was under... More

Good food and service. Got the Pad Thai & it was average for me, could use a bit more flavour. There was only 1 other table being used, we were there for lunch.

Food was simply delicious. One of the best fish sauced ever! Visiting the area for awhile and I'm certain we are returning before leaving the area.

Based on the reviews, maybe my expectations were too high. I had the yellow curry chicken with mixed vegetables. The food was served promptly and the service was good. The venue is clean and bright and no problems finding parking. However, I can think of at least a half a dozen places doing better Thai food so I'm not sure... More
