Dishes were really good, espescially the salad! They have various wines from all over the world, for 150 bath is a little expensive, but I guess it's the normal price in thailand.

Great food, prices are OK. The restaurant has been pretty empty both times we've been, so the ambience suffers a bit. But good service, and great food. A bit expensive for what you get compared to other places in town.
