The food was terrific. We read differing reviews about this restaurant - but we had nothing but good to say about it. Good, fresh, tasty food, served by friendly and prompt staff. The interior of the restaurant is ver nice, transporting you from the slightly sketchy neighbourhood where the place is found. Seek it out, because you will never just trip over it.

This is a very neat restaurant located in a shady part of town and the food is nice and flavourful but you must then put up with the owner who is terribly rude to customers.
I have found many another restaurant serving thai that are better and appreciative of thier customers and so do not recommend the drive to Ontario Street . Also My car was dented badly after we came out maybe due to the seedy area of the restaurant

Best Thai food I've had to date. Service was impeccable. Dishes were creative and delicious. The owner was most helpful and attentive. I don't know what the guy on here is talking about, but he should learn to spell if he plans to have his reviews taken seriously. This place is a five star restaurant.

The place is a very cool location but the owner in particular Allan is very rude and when any changes are requested he makes you feel like you should not be there
Its almost like he does not want you in the restaurant.
They offer cooking classes and we started going hear a year ago and once the oplace became known its almost like the owner changed personalities and frankly makes you feel like a second class citizen. I woiuld not go back , there are many inviting Thai restaurants in Toronto happy to have you

WOW! This is an incredible restaurant, and for many reasons: food, service, and atmosphere. Food first of all: my wife and I had the fixed price menu, which, for $37 was very generous and not at all outrageous price wise. Every course, every bite was intense, harmonious flavors on the palate and excellent execution all around. I won't describe each dish in detail, but my main course was the beef ribs, and they were fall off the bone gorgeous, intense, and as flavorful as I have ever tasted. Service was all smiles and attention throughout the evening, and the location is very intimate and romantic, with an historic feel you'd find in Europe or Tribeca. Bottom line, this place is as good or better than anything I have tried in the likes of NYC, San Fran, Chicago, and Toronto. Go there and eat, you will love everything about it....!
