There is no better Thai food on PEI, and it's our first choice for eating when visiting Charlottetown! The Spicy Pork Penang is to die for!😃

Eight out of 10 times that I have gone to this restaurant, I received either the wrong order or incorrect ingredients in my Thai dish. I cannot understand for the life of me the reason why EGGS are added to dishes that do not have eggs included as an ingredient. If training your cooks is necessary, for goodness sake, TRAIN... More

I never go to National City but we decided to head south and tried this restaurant since we like Thai food. The restaurant is pleasantly decorated with various knick knacks and other Thai items. I like noodle dishes so ordered the Phad Woon Sen - glass noodles with chicken and vegetables. I also ordered the Thai dumplings as an appetizer.... More

We couldn't believe the health department allowed this restaurant to stay open! It was FILTHY. The floor tiles were broken and missing, the floor looked like it hadn't been swept or mopped properly, EVER. The tables were sticky with food particles, there were cobwebs everywhere, and the dishes looked like they were from a flea market that didn't match and... More

The hotel clerk recommended this restaurant and I'm happy he did. Wonderful Phad Thai and Mas Man Curry. The portions were huge and very tasty. The process were very reasonable. Highly recommend you try this place.

A nice little Thai place. It's a cozy quiet place to dine with friends and family. Homey Thai decor. I went with my brother and we both enjoyed our meals. While I like curry, I wanted something a little lighter so I had the mixed veggies. My brother had the beef salad and we shared a pot of Tom yum.... More

The food is overpriced and not very good. The staff is indifferent as is the manager/owner. I left with a bad taste in my mouth.
