Loved the "beef salad", everything is really good! Nice ambiance inside, maybe the tables were a bit close to each other but it was ok!

This restaurant's food was amazing! We were here for a late birthday celebration, and it did not disappoint. Many dishes stayed true to traditional Thai flavours, but with a twist. We had the 5-flavour finger food, mango salad, crispy vegan duck, green curry, chocolate avocado...More
