“Bahrain's best Asian restaurant”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

A range of delicious dishes from Thai to Japanese food. The sushi and maki rolls are great, curries, rice dishes, the Tom yum soup is superb. The prices are a little on the high side but the ambience alone is worth the extra cash. Parking is limited but there is a valet service, staff and service are both exceptional. There is also a well stocked bar and extensive drinks list. Bookings essential for weekends.

“Excellent thai food”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This restaurant is a hidden gem. the taxi driver didn't know where it was and took ages before find it. Just say close to Camelot and from there is at 1 minute walk.
the building is a red pagoda. Inside there are suffused lights, bamboo furnitures and fountains. There is also an outside area with a porch where you can dine when it's summer.
The menu is huge so unless you are familiar with this food, better go there weel prepared.
this is what we ordered for 6. don0t get scared.. seem a lot of things, but are just little dishes to share..
Chor Moung: flower shaped steamed rice flour filled with chicken dumplings
Toong Thong: deep fried minced shrimp wrapped in Chinese pancake
Poh Pia Tod: deep fried spring roll
Kanom Pan Na Kumg: Thai toast with minced shrimp
GaiSatai: marinated breast fillet with thai herbes and spices
Gai Sate:Malaysian grilled chicken sate with peanut and cucumber sauce
Banh Coun Thit: Vietnamese dumpling stuffed with minced shrimp, chicken and black mushroom
Shrimp and vegetable tempura
Tom Yam Kung: Thai prawn soup with chilli, lemongrass and lime leaves
Tom Kha Gai: chicken soup with coconut milk
Panang Gai: a rich creamy red curry of chicken and lime leaves
Pad Thai: Thai noodles with shrimp
Yai Mai: roasted vermicelli filled with cream brullee
Coconut chocolate brownie

The food is delicious and tipically thai. The restaurant is fascinating and romantic. Perfect for a special occasion...
strongly recommend it!
