We arrived for dinner at 7pm on a Saturday night. We had great service and yummy food. By 8:30pm large groups of very drunk and loud people were arriving so it was time for us to leave.

The food was up to standard, but we found the waiters a little pushy. Really enjoy the Napier Thai Chef but this restaurant needs little more work.
