Bland and oily food. Little meat in each meal, and the meat that was in there was very poor quality. Not good value for money. This used to be a favorite of ours, and had given it the benefit of the doubt after 2 previous poor meals. However after this meal we will not be returning.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. It looks very ordinary from outside but inside is ok. The food was really lovely. I was impressed by the variety of veges and yummy tofu in the cashew nut stir fry. Not the cheapest Thai food I've eaten but it was a lovely meal

We wandered down the street looking for a place for dinner, and came across this smart looking restaurant. The menu outside seemed reasonable in terms of choice of dishes and price.

We soon realised that the prices on the takeaway menu outside were about 20 or 25% less than the dine-in prices. I might expect a 10% difference, but this seemed a bit dishonest. Corkage was $8, for which we got two glasses and an ice bucket. There was no attempt to open the wine or keep our glasses filled.

We asked for a beef stir fry and a red pork curry. The stir fry was tasty; but the curry was bland, and the quality of pork was really the worst I have seen in a restaurant in a long time, fatty and unchewable. To charge about $25 per dish was ridiculous.

This is one restaurant that I will not visit again or recommend.

This was our third visit and were looking forward to sharing this treasure with friends. Unfortunately this was not to be the case. To start with the service was acceptable but compromised by the waiters difficulty with the English language. The food was presented well but the flavours were a little bland and not up to usual standards. I had the Prawn Salad which was let down badly by the limp and discoloured mesculan leaves. Upon finishing our meal we were ignored until we requested our account. Will not write it off totally but it might be a while before we return.

Lovely fresh, tasty meals at reasonable prices in nice surroundings. The only drawback is that it is noisy due to polished floorboards.
