“Just NO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

The Tom Kha Kai soup was inedible. It was watery and not authentic as it had carrots, broccoli and cauliflower mixed in which were picked up in the flavor of the broth. Nothing delicate about the taste. The satay were extremely dry but the peanut sauce was good. The sticky rice was too glutenous. I will not order again.

“would not go again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

i went to eat there because they advertised a Thai buffet; it is not. Instead, you get to order whatever you want from a limited menu for a set price. so you dont get to try many foods. this was one of the worst thai food i ever ate. the sate was a small stick of deep fried chicken with crunchy peanut butter as a sauce; the curry tasted like a bland combination of peanut butter, coconut milk and a few vegetables, served with an extra large portion of soggy waterlogged rice.
Although it is an all you can eat proposal, after you have a taste, you cannot eat all that much; very poor value and taste. I would not go back.

The restaurant was modern and had a pleasant atmosphere. The quality of the dish I ordered was good. The service was friendly and prompt. I would not hesitate to have another meal at this restaurant.
