We loved the flavors of curry base but found both dishes lacking in quantity. The Panang was peppers with a little chicken and the Massaman was potatoes with very little chicken. Even the rice portion was a little on the small side.

The overall green curry I must say was quite yummy. But I didn't get the Pad Thai. Couldn't find my tofu. Lacked flavour and wow the amount of cauliflower in it. I don't get it. The best Pad Thai's I have ever had is at this Thai place in Vancouver on Davie Street by Bute. That's Pad Thai!

small restaurant in downtown area. Nice atmosphere. Good tasty thai food and reasonably priced. Sometimes they have outdoor sidewalk seating. Will take reservations.

Beautiful inside but food lacked flavour. Frozen battered prawns yuck yuck yuck. Pad Thai was the worse I have ever had. Had to hunt for chicken and veg and peanuts. A plate of beige noodles stuck together. Calamari was a joke. Very nice jasmine tea ! Skip the white elephant.

This is a spotless restaurant with cheerful staff and an upscale surrounding. The portions are fair the flavor is in every dish and the the won ton soup is best in area, I was very impressed by such a nice place I could find no fault except the curry was a bit hot for me.
