We were told this restaurant has delicious Thai food and we were not disappointed. Lucky we booked because it gets busy. The food was awesome, the staff delightful. All our meals had lovely fresh ingredients.

Great tasting food. Each member of our party loved the flavour and the size of their meal. Excellent table service for a busy little restaurant. Will be going again next time we visit Launceston.
