We used google maps when in Port Perry to find restaurants nearby and discovered this gem. Was a little concerned at the front door but once inside the story took a turn. I love the little "secret hole in the wall" restaurants that cater to simple people that love great food and this place is one of them. The service... More

Went with out of town friends to this restaurant last week because I couldn't say enough about how much I liked it here. This time around I was very disappointed for a number of reasons. Made reservations for lunch for 4; 8 of us stood for a very long time waiting for someone to show up to seat us. Took... More

Had a business lunch here back in April, very crowded an cramped seating, seemed rushed, had a decent lunch but not an overall enjoyable experience, maybe dinner w/reservations is a bit better?

Last time I had the Thai red curry and a Pad Thai....and they were both splendid. This time,,,,,I couldn't resist the red curry again, and also had their Thai eggplant. The red curry was as great as I remembered it. So was (served as part of their lunch special) the Lemongrass soup. The eggplant........another exciting surprise. It was wonderful! Sweet.....a...

Saturday evening dinner with friends before the theatre. They had been before so we knew we were in for a great meal. Excellent flavours in the appetizers and soup. Had the spicy chicken for the main course, although it was very very good, personally, I found the vegetable pieces to be somewhat large. Would like them smaller and cooked a... More

First visit to this restaurant after hearing about it for several years. Small and intimate (but there's at least as much space upstairs as well!) and friendly, the decor transports the patron to another world! It was a chilly fall evening, and the cozy atmosphere was very welcoming. However, the temperature didn't match, and the promised cozy didn't materialize unfortunately.... More
