Interesting decor. Food was good. Service was professional. 1 of the better restaurants around the area.

Will never eat here again. Despite it being a slow night, we waited nearly an hour for ANY of our courses to be served. Staff was indifferent and outright rude. HK is a GREAT food city, and deserves so much better than this place

Service here is incompetent and indifferent. After placing our order, we waited, and waited. 20 minutes in, we inquired, and were told "it's on the way" Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Nearly one hour later - we were finally served. With barely an apology and no offer of adjustment to the bill. Will NEVER eat here again.

I've been to this Thai restaurant a few times since I live in the neighbourhood and they were not bad before. Last night when we went for dinner everything was bland. Got the pork labb and steam fish. Pork labb had no spicy flavor and steam fish is just bland steam with no lime flavor. I know what these dishes... More

I really, really love Thai food. Living above Koh Thai, it was an obvious destination for a meal. I was horrified when biting into my chicken curry to discover the chicken was still pink and bloody inside. It had not been cooked properly at all! I felt ill. I have never returned and have no intention of returning. Whenever I... More

Grabbed a quick lunch - terrasse was perfect for people watching. Great location, a bit pricy by Chinese standards. The coconut-chicken soup was delicious. Staff was satisfactory.

the worst thai food i had in years ... and i had thai food in places like norway or texas. how can a pork neck be dry like a shoe sole? how can chicken cashew nuts be dry and tasteless ... like a microwaved leftover from last weekend? the best dish was the plain rice. whats wrong with this place?

Ad hoc trip to the top of the escalator and bumped into this restaurant - well what a pleasant surprise. Super food and service. Of course would have been great to sit outside but everyone else wanted to also. But we sat in side and enjoyed the food - apparently this is a favourite of many HK'ers and we just... More

Lovely Thai restaurant just by the Phoenix at the top end of escalator street. Food is tasty and lovely and reasonably priced - if you go on the terrace upstairs you have to go downstairs to buy a drink for Some reason which is a little off but hardly a chore. Have some house specialities that we tried which were... More

We went for a weekday lunch (to the location on Mosque St @ Shelley St, mid-levels), there was no crowd and the “lunch set” was just what we wanted: not too many options, and all the good classics. You choose a starter, a main and a drink – my Tom Yum Kung soup was delicious, with a nice kick to... More
