Delicious Thai food in all its variety, in a restaurant that gives you the feeling of sitting in a museum but in a very positive sense. Just enjoyable.

we were lucky to find a place for two to drink our delicious cocktails. the place, the building and the atmosphere is great in general, but when it gets crowded, people just try to squeeze themselves somewhere. they have a great variety of cocktails and foreign drinks.

The restaurant smells very nice as you enter the door. It is located in a very beautiful building. The tables are cramped in the restaurant and it is quite warm in there. The Pad Thai was delicious and I highly recommend it. The service was fine as well. Would dine there again. :)

The food is good and well cooked. The menu has enough choice to satisfy everyone. The problem is that they have crammed too many tables in and you find yourself sitting very close to other diners.

It is also quite hot as there is no air-con and little other ventilation.

The service was slow with staff hard pushed to serve the many tables. They are also constantly running up and down the stairs to serve drinks and take food to other floors.

I rather got the impression that the owners had set up a successful restaurant and then decided to squeeze all they could out of it at diners expense.

I would recommend going on a week day and insisting on a table on the first or ground floor.
