Not only was the service incredible, but the food was easily the best Thai food I've ever had. In fact it is probably the best food I've ever had period. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves authentic and fresh cuisine.

3 of us dropped by for quick lunch. The chili was decent...the maple chicken panini was kinda plain...curry lentil soup was good...butter chicken was not to Grain of S standards. Nice guy running place... had a vegan feel to place if that's your thing.

Fabulous food,excellent wine and beer, focused on distinctive flavours, toothsome desserts. Hamet provided friendly, personalized accommodation and supervision of a ramp to allow my scooter to enter and exit the restaurant. We were three couples (including one vegetarian) attending this bistro after enjoying a matinee at the Dunfield centre just across the street. Thank you for an excellent culinary experience.

The dishes served to my party of 3 all won rave reviews. it is almost as if the standard... More

I will start by saying I want to give this restaurant a better rating but I'd be lying to others who are trying to find a suitable place to dine for various occasions. I picked this bistro for dinner after the fine reviews I read about the food and service but I also read the reviews that warned of a... More

The atmosphere is only second to the food! Everything about this place is incredible. It is perhaps the most relaxing atmosphere I've ever been in whole dining. You can tell the staff care about making sure your comfortable. The food is out if this world!

If you want a taste bud treat, I highly recommend this very different experience. The revamped house gives huge character as soon as you walk in the door. The chalk board wall lists dozens and dozens of home made (and gluten free) options. The bright punches of colour make it so fun. The service was warm and inviting. It was... More
