This is a fine place to eat if you need a change from the meals at those hotel buffets. Although not the best Thai food we have ever eaten, it is freshly prepared and tasty.

We were are large group and ordered a variety of food, with disappointment of the food a resounding response. We were the only dinners in the restaurant, so all attention in the kitchen could have been on our food preparation.

I went there after reading the Tripadvisor reviews with high expectations. The place looks a bit worn off and dated. There wasn't too much worth mentioning about the food. Service too is not up to the mark.

Nice food, good service. It would seem the local chillis work well with Thai food as though the curry was spicy it had an amazing flavor.

This is a lovely restaurant, with delicious food. The building isn't much to look at (in fact, it's actually quite horrible) but the food was worth it. I had sweet and sour chicken with rice and veg and a green papaya salad, which was lovely. The waitress brought over a big pot of green tea as well which was a... More
