Early evening so managed to get a table in spite of not having booked .....very busy when we left. Very very hot evening so disappointed that the water on offer was not iced. Presentation was good and the food tasty, but the reviews had led me to believe that it was outstanding, which it wasn't. It is close to the Orpheum Cinema, so is well positioned for a pre, or post movie supper.

This has to be our favorite Thai restaurant.
The food is always fresh and tasty and the service has been great overall
I love the marinated lamb cutlets (Kae Katiem) and my husband always gets the beef stir fry with Tamarind Sauce but we are gradually working our way through the entire menu
It is a pretty restaurant and ambiance is lovely especially in summer when all the french glass doors are opened. Plus it is a great place to have dinner before going to the movies as the beautiful Hayden Orpheum theatre (which is a must see) is right across the road.
They dont open till 5pm but even so the place is always packed so make sure you have a reservation

Consistently very good! Make a booking, it's often packed out. Very delicious. Been a few times and usually the waiters are very attentive, we did have one instance with a sour waiter who didn't seem to be enjoying their job. Might want to request a good table to avoid being stuck in a back corner.

Tasty Thai, some of it spicier than usual. Great location. Ambient at night, not really a vibrant lunch place (unless we just chose the wrong day, the restaurant was practically empty at lunch time). hard to go wrong really..

Am always surprised when I see some of the reviews for nearby Thai restaurants which are so basic and yet score so well.
This is consistently a favourite - always crowded and hard to get a table but it is worth the effort.
If you do want basic, then are dishes such as red duck curry or pad thai that are excellent but some of the specials such as the noodle nest with prawns or the duck with the plum sauce are excellent.
