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!

I went there with my friend and we sat in the patio area in the back of the restaurant. It was very beautiful with fountains and plants everywhere. The prices were fair and the meal (1 of the daily specials) was satisfying with a great combination of spices and tasty ingredients. The service was friendly and it was quiet even... More

We arrived before the rush yet still the service was slow when we got there, and by the time the lunch time rush arrived service had deteriorated to plain bad, and was getting worse as the restaurant filled up! The food was perfectly acceptable but nothing special, however to be fair the lunch special was a decent portion, my standard... More

We just arrived home from Thailand and I didn't expect the food to be nearly as good. The rice was overlooked and had turned to mush, the curry we ordered, though well presented was small and chewy. The kicker was the coconut soup. It tasted like bath water with coconut milk so all in all flavourless. The thai style seafood... More
