Found the food good but not traditional. Found that it missed the secret ingredient that makes it Thai food and not chicken in coconut milk....

had lunch there with my wife and daughter. pleasant setting and much welcome AC on that sweltering day. Very nice waitress who unfortunately was alone... so service was very slow. We all had pad thai, one tofu, one chicken and one beef. too sugary and tasteless. Price was OK. They have a nice terrasse up front and a garden in... More

This place is my favourite restaurant in the area. Be prepared for big portions and delicious food. Servers, although very young, are friendly and effective.

We went for lunch before catching our train and the restaurant was full with only one server. What were they thinking ? So everyone was impatient, the food was taking too long to come out and when it actually came out, it was cold and while I asked for beef, they served me chicken. Taste is a little above average...

This is a regular spot for lunch for me. Have been numerous times and I love the place. Inside, it's rather small, but the food is excellent. I always order the special, for $16 you get a very good plate. Service is always quick.

For the reviews that this restaurant is receiving I figured it would have a better ambiance and better service. The food was good - but overall it just didn't quite make up for the lack of character.

Overall: Don't be fooled by the front entrance. It appears like the smallest restaurant you can imagine, but once Inside, it is impressive. The have a front terrace and a back yard terrace. This is an excellent Thai restuarant and I will certainly be going back. Décor: Intimate and charming with typical Thai art, colors and furniture. Both the front... More

I do not eat at many Thai restaurants but this one is one of the few that I highly recommend. I have eaten here on 4 different occasions over the past few years, and every time the food and service was nothing short of excellent. Whether you are an experienced Thai food patron or not, try this restaurant...you will not... More

We had the lunch special and were very pleased with the food. The waiter was billingual and very friendly, we sat outside in the sun and it made for a very enjoyable experience. Ignore the bad reviews!
