A regular place for us. Food presentation, taste/quality/portion size and choice is, to us, faultless. Keep up the great work Oraya and team, nothing seems to much to ask for, Highly recommended. Booking is becoming more necessary as this little beauty gets more popular.

I can’t believe the previous review!! This is food cooked to order and consistently good. You don’t need mega portions just quality home cooked Thai food. We live here and it is our number one. It gets very busy justifiably!

Not sure why people rave about this place. I thought it was awful, very small portions and tasteless. No atmosphere, Will not be visiting again.

There are signs in the restaurant saying if you don't see something on the menu ask the staff. Pad Thai shouldn't be a problem but you might have to give a days notice for the pork knuckle. Hope that helps, J
