Pleasant atmosphere, great food. We were seated close to the order desk and there was a constant flow of people picking up orders and phone was ringing non-stop with orders coming in. It was my first time eating here and I really enjoyed it.

We've been here several times now... Thai food is always very good and portions generous. Service is fast and efficient with a smile. The only caveat is pick your time. It gets very busy at dinner so you might have to wait a while. And it can get noisy when it's busy. It's still our favourite Thai spot in town.

Although I have been coming here for years with a friend I feel like this time was my last. I'm so sick of how horrible the service is. I rarely complain but I've had enough . One waitress for sure ruins everything for this place. Very short, tiny and long black hair. Has the worst attitude in the service industry... More

My husband and I dined together last week. I ordered the crispy chicken and he ordered the crispy duck. The edges were overcooked and dry....Sad this used to be a good place to dine however the waiters/waitresses seemed to spend more time behind the counter and spend more time with take-out orders than the diners in the restaurant. To the... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and am unhappy each time. The only reason I have gone back is because I have a friend who always chooses it. I offer alternatives but she keeps going back. I have never had a pleasant experience, or even kind word, from the wait staff. They are practically non-existing. The wait for... More

My family met at the restaurant at 6:30p.m. to celebrate my birthday. We left almost 9:00p.m that night. The service was very slow as they were packed. It would help if they have more server but I guess they're trying to cut down labour cost. I can't say it was worth the wait but the food was nothing to brag... More

Small restaurant with a good mix of Thai and Vietnamese food. The Tom Yum soup is very good. The restaurant facility itself is small, clean and up to date, nothing special. However the lineup at the door shows that people come here for the food not the decor. We have always found the staff helpful and friendly. I noted a... More

Eat in or take out at least once per month. Food is hot and fresh with an extensive menu. Always a great meal. Spicy options available. Large portions as well. I usually take home half my meal to eat the next day.
