The serving per menu is relatively big and could be shared by 2-3 persons. It's a cozy good place even good for small group meetings.

Service was friendly and reasonably fast. Portions were good although we weren't impressed with the curries. They don't have kids menus but there are definitely things on... More

We popped in for a bite at lunch - there was a buffet, which we're not big buffet people - but the lemongrass soup was very good. The lady making it was super nice too. It really hit the spot after a morning in the water. There was a crowd of people, so get there a bit before noon to... More

I was a little leary of eating spicy Thai food, but the restaurant chefs were gracious to to tone down the heat...and, our meal was fabulous! We had a great time with friends and really enjoyed a variety of delicious Thai dishes. Superb!
