We enjoyed this Thai restaurant in Centre Town, Ottawa, for a late evening meal. We shared a combination of dishes and all were tasty. Service was fast. The restaurant was very quiet the evening that we went.

We went to Ottawa for the Tulip Festival and at the end of the day chose this Thai Restaurant. My husband and I just visited Thailand not long ago, and we both love Thai food, so wherever we go if there is Thai restaurant, we always like to have a try. We ordered Tom Yum Soup with Coconut Milk, Pat... More

In a calm ambience, we had the best Curry in town. The sauces are full of flavours and the vegetables are fresh and tasteful. Definitely going back everything we want Thai.

This is a fantastic restaurant. Food is great and authentic. The mango salad is fantastic and topped with fresh delicious shrimp. The pad Thai is very good but a little on the sweet side for me but the other guests at our table loved it. The red curry with chicken is the best I have had in all of Ottawa.... More
