We wanted to break a little the Thai food with western flavors. We found what we were looking for and way more. Intimate restaurant where the owner is also the chef and the weiter. The dish were vary tasty and with a twist. I warmly recommend this place, go for the spicy meatballs, and mash potatos!

We had a delicious meal here and loved every dish. The owner is a wonderful host and she took great care of us. The ambiance here is absolutely great. A must visit if you're looking for an alternative to Thai / Asian food on the island.
