Great food and flavours. Nice décor and great location. Parking is an issue up paid lots close by. Worth a visit for excellent that.

We especially returned to this resto yesterday, after having come for lunch a few months ago. The dinner menu was expensive for the amount of food on the plate, the rice was charged as an extra, the jasmine variety was tasteless, the beef and veggies dish was tasteless, and we left hungry!!! This resto is skimping on the food, yet... More

Nice place, well decorated, varied menu including gluten-free... everything we ordered was fresh and good - order to 'spice taste' .... Mojito was very good! orders took a little while but ambiance is just right, not rushed and comfortable. Prices reasonable, portions just right

Large menu. Pretty good food right in the market. I had the prawn curry and my friend had the steamed salmon. For dessert, we had mango with sticky rice. Delicious. Highly recommended. In my humble opinion, this place seems a cut above the generic Thai resturants.

I checked this place out on trip advisor prior to leaving.. and everyone raved about it. The food was pretty good, but the service! Yikes. No eye contact, no interaction, If 50 words passed between the server/hostess and us it was a lot. We barely sat down when the server came to take our order, she seemed very impatient that... More

Good Thai food at the bayward market. The sign is not so prominent and can be easily missed. There is no parking and car can be parked at the parking garage for 8 $ maximum or 4 $ after rysh hours. Food prices are the standard though the cutlery was too heavy and space for sitting quiet tight. There is... More

We had yellow Thai curry with tofu & veg (Gaeng Karee Pak) as it was a chilly evening. It was very good! Also the Seafood Salad (Yum Parichart). The seafood was very fresh and well prepared. The drinks menu had some interesting cocktails - new to me was the caiparinha and it was good!

Had the general Thai chicken and was delighted how tasty it was. If you like Thai food and are downtown you should stop by.

The place is run by Thais and the food is the real thing, not the fast food type imitation that is flourishing all over the city. Decor and ambiance are nice and service is quick and courteous.
