Hours posted online and on the door indicate this restaurant closes at 22:00. We drove 40 minutes to get there because we were craving some Thai food and arrived at 21:10 with a 4 year old who needed to be fed and were turned away.

We had a dinner in this place, amazing food, Moukta is awsome hostess, we had good time & good food, spicy chicken with shrimp , general tao , and that soup to start off plus salad before the final meal , awsome! You can even bring your own wine., i didn't and had it after in my hotel 😂😂😂😂.

My wife and I have tried several "bring your own wine" types of restaurant and now we end up always there! A lot of choices (table d'hôte), it's cheap, it's very tasty, what else do you want? I strongly recommend the thai soup and the spring rolls! Best in town!

Service was pleasant. Poor food watered down Panang which hadn't seen a peanut and lots of onion filler. Chicken basil had no basil. Disappointed after reading the reviews.

One of the best restaurants for Thai food. This a gem in Quebec City. I recommend this to anyone who wants a good authentic Thai dish.

food is very very tasty and service is always smiling and friendly. Portiona are big and you can bring your own wine. only bad point is that sometimes the place is a bit crowded and noisy, but thats ok for the fact that the price is so low!
