The decor is very nice and leaves you excited to try the food. The service is the next step in the meal and it will serve to further heighten your expectations. Well, you will not be disappointed because both the food and the price point exceed expectations. Who though that Upper James would be a food destination but the variety and quality of the restaurants is doing just that!

this is not a fancy place and the menu isn't going to grab people who really love thai food, but it is serviceable food, well presented, and reasonably priced

This is one of our favorite restaurants when we visit Hamilton. We love the Asian fusion menu and the jazzy decor. The prices are reasonable and the service very friendly

This is a great Asian restaurant in Hamilton. There are only 2 downfalls I've found as a repeat customer: The service is crappy/slow, and I find their spice level to be inconsistent. Otherwise, it's wonderful. The mood lightening and atmosphere is great, the food is always fresh but a little inconsistent as I said with the spice levels, and I never feel rushed out even when its busy. BUT if you need something, be prepared to wait for your waitress/waiter. We usually just flag down whomever we see first, and they are always willing to help.

PS. They welcome families but the majority are adults for business or with friends.

If the service was as good as most of the food, this would be an incredible place to dine. We often go for lunch and sometimes it is hard to get service and getting ice tea is harder still. The "fresh" rice paper rolls need to be made on the spot since the rice paper tastes more rubbery than in other places. But, the chicken pho is super, and a huge portion for a great price. Anything from Vermicelli valley is great, as are the Spice chicken wings and the fried rice. Sometimes it takes a while to get plates cleared away and to get the bill. Overall, though, high marks for most of the food, now we just need to get the service in line.
