The place for hot pot (steamboat) if you’re in to it. Tom yum soup is one of the best in town. We had the buffet and it was worth it ($35pp for 90mins).

We visited this restaurant this week with a group of 8 people and had a great time. Meals are large, well priced and very good quality! We'll be back!

Have eaten here before but after seeing the kitchen I will never eat again. I give 1 star only because it’s required.

The one place in Darwin you can get a good hotpot (i.e. sukiyaki in Thai). I have not been here once when it has not been packed.

Food is delicious. I live in Thailand where nice restaurants are all around town but their food here is top notch.

Ordered fried chicken with garlic and pepper and Fisherman's soup. Would've been nice I reckon but both dishes were SALTY as. Will be hard to go back as Darwin has plenty of other good Thai options...Thai Thai, Asian Gateway, etc.
