“Too expensive and depressing!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

OK, it was a Sunday night, but still... We were the third table to be occupied at 9am. The lights were bright and all the 5 waitreses looked completely uninterested. The white wine was corcked. The food was good, but not great. The only exuisite dish was chargrilled river prawn, which looked like lobster and tadted divine. Still, even that poor guy couldn't have saved the depressing evening. Afterwards we went to the Dome and everything changed for the better.

“Lovely food and attentive service”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

The house selection of appetizers was very good, fresh zesty flavors. For main course we had the beef thinly sliced in a chili broth. Papaya salad and vegetable pumpkin leaves both good. Marinated chicken also good. Mango and sweet rice to finish.
I left my expensive camera and came back the next day and it was waiting for me. How wonderful to be in Thailand with honest kind people. Thank you.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Seems like a hidden pearl. A restaurant that aims to make different kinds of thai-food, but presents it in a delicious way. Everything we tasted was delicious, and still the prices was not more than whats ordinary to pay for a meal in Thailand. Would definitively recommend this.
