The kitchen is very consistent. The soups are amazing. The spicy seafood salad is great. So is the mango salad. Not a big fan of pad Thai but their curry dishes are great. The pepper vermicelli dish is great.

We went there on Monday night and there was a sign on the door saying as from today we will be closed every Monday. No indication of this on their website. Need to update your website,!

We share the basil like rolls and satay as an appetizer. We really like the basil like rolls, the vegetables were very fresh and they were accompanied by a good peanut sauce. The... More

I've visited multiple times and have never been less than impressed and satisfied. Favourite dishes include the green curry and sticky rice, but you can't go wrong with anything. Having visited Thailand several months ago... More
