“Probably the best in Canada”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

My husband and I eat a lot of Thai and this restaurant is excellent. Now the only thing I have to add is we went to the one in DARTMOUTH...not in Halifax it self.
Service was perfect, food hot, fresh and you could actually taste the ginger in the spring rolls. Alot of Thai restaurants I have been to especially in Vancouver, use a lot of celery . Since when is celery used in Thai. This restaurant used authentic vegetables to each dish. Can not say enough positive.

Ate here with my wife and daughter. We all ordered off of the lunch menu. Food was great and delivered quickly. Springrolls were awesome. We will be back.

“A great place to share a meal with family.”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

This restaurant mostly offers a la carte dishes, to be eaten with a few people. While they don't offer a large selection of combination plates, it's still well worth the trip, if you enjoy a bit of spice in your food. The sauces are a bit heavier than some restaurants, but the flavour makes up for it. The soft spring rolls were delicious, as was the prawn pad thai and vegetable dish. (Spicy goodness!) Try the mango and coconut sticky rice for dessert, it's a lovely palate cleanser after a fresh & spicy meal.

One thing to note is that the washroom is located down a narrow flight of step, not the best for those with mobility issues or wheelchairs.

“Lovely food with fantastically friendly service plus value for money”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

The food was lovely. Nice authentic flavours and the staff were really friendly too - just the right side of attentive without being overbearing and v smiley. Nice range of wines - nothing flash but all good. Also ideal if you're staying at the Waverley Inn opposite!
