“Summerlicious Deal!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We sampled shrimp satay, mango cold roll, duck quinoa, coconut mango sticky rice and deep fried banana. I think skewered shrimp served with a tasty thick dipping sauce is more accurate description, but nevertheless it was tasty, as was the roll appetizer.

The quinoa dish was inventive and excellent. Instead of using white rice, they used quinoa "fried rice style." Never knew you could finish the grain like that, especially as the dish was not oily. Very reasonable entree portion, loved that the deep fried banana is finished with honey instead of the usual ice cream.

The mango slice on the bottom of the sticky rice was very pale in colour, and lacked juiciness, sweetness and flagrance; they used a different type of mango than what we're used to eating. My dining companion did not bother to finish this dish. All the dishes were well presented.

Seemed well-staffed. The owner check on the food and chatted; she seemed warm and genuine. The host also took the time to stop by and chat, and replenished my water glass. The server and runner were good but lacked polish (e.g., setting down my entree plate in the middle of the table and then pushing it towards me as it banged through my cutlery instead of picking the plate up and setting it down in front of me.)

Lovely surroundings and ambiance. I'd definitely return.

“Spicy food and good value”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I like the panang curry chicken. It was very spicy and tasty. I asked for 5 chili which is very hot. If you can eat spicy food you can ask for more chilli up to 20. It will burn your tongue. The vegetable fresh rolls were not up to par. It was loosely wrapped and with carrots as the main ingredient and lack of herbs.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

The space is lovely and the staff were very pleasant. Starters and mains were Ok but nothing had the "wow factor". Chicken satay, fish cakes, mango salad, pineapple fried rice, catfish in banana leaf, green curry chicken and oyster mushrooms with tofu were not memorable.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We like this restaurant a lot, the appetizers and main courses are all good. The duck is always a good choice. The prices are reasonable, usually around $100 for two, including wine.

Have been to the restaurant three times and never disappointed.

“The inspiration of my love of Thai food”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

One of my favorite Thai restaurants in Toronto so far... The deco is just amazing, almost reminds me of Thailand; green curry chicken is so tasteful that not until then did I start to dig Thai food... Now that gives a new meaning to any good restaurant.
