“Excellent Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Since traveling to Thailand, Thai food has become our passion. The green curry with vegetables, the Pad Thai, and the homemade hot sauce were out of this world. Some of the best we've had outside of Thailand.

“Authentic Thai with friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

I have to admit I nearly gave up trying to find this place. It is in the middle of everything in Simpson Bay, yet tucked away with poor signage. That being said, I am glad I found it. The food was very good, authentic Thai. Ordered the green curry - Thai spicy - and loved it. It was nice and spicy. The lettuce wraps were a bit odd using Romaine lettuce, but it worked and the flavor was tasty. Service was very friendly as well. It was a bit pricey for Thai food, but par for the course in SXM. It was a great change from the endless supply of French restaurants. Worth a visit - if you can find it. Ignore the "residents only" sign for parking and it will be easier.

“Great Authentic Thai with a Beautiful View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

Recently stumbled upon this gem. Not easy to find, but it is situated in a beautiful setting right on the bay. The drinks are good and the food is great. The goat cheese starter is highly recommended. this place is probably one of the best Thai places I have been to anywhere.

“Great Birthday Dinner”

I chose this place for my family reunion and birthday dinner. Authentic Thai food and reasonably priced... the service was immaculate and the food very tasty. Nice lagoon breeze to keep you cool without the need of A/C.Keep up the good work.

“Amazing food! Amazing view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

This was a great experience. Eating out on the deck is spectacular, the views of the bay are fabulous as is the food. We began with the PANLAAN HO CHEESE appetizer, this was delicious and creamy and the sauce is excellent. For dinner I had the TOM KHA TALAY, a coconut soup with jumbo prawn (I mean HUGE), scallop, calamari, and mussels, it was sweet and spicy and the coconut and lemongrass gave it a nice fresh flavor. My husband had a stir fry with prawns and ordered it Thai spicy which he enjoyed very much but was too spicy for me. Overall an incredible meal and an excellent dining experience.
