My wife and I went here on our 10th wedding anniversary (with 7 year old in tow...) because my wife likes a nice Thai dinner every now and then. We had been here before a couple of years before, and we liked the food and presentation, although each time when the check came, we wondered how we could have possibly spent so much for so little food.

After reviewing the bill, I guess when you get charged $11 USD for 2 small glasses of milk for your child (you can buy a liter of milk for $2.70 USD in Abu Dhabi), you really can't hope to get anything else on the menu for a normal price. The food is very good, and the wait staff is very attentive, but it all comes crashing down when reviewing the bill, and ultimately leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Good and spicy Thai food at very good prices.
The only drawback is the interior which lacks "asian" atmosphere, but the food and service is great so I will be back

Good menu choices, reasonably priced. Surprised no crab cakes but can't have everything. Friendly staff, not Thai, but attentive. Only problem with the restaurant is that is small and can't easily cater for groups larger than 4-6, and often the AC is set too low. This means that both the patrons and the food get cold very quickly. Recommend taking a shawl or jumper just in case. There are better Asian restaurants in the city (chao gao at Crowne plaza for one) but worth the trip if meeting friends in the jazz club or hemming ways bar afterwards.

We are a family of 3 (husband & wife & 15 year old daughter) and went to dine in this restarant famous for Thai food. The restaurant is situated in the residential locality, off Salam Street, behind UNB Bank building. The sitting ambience in the resaurant was good and spacious. The service from the serving staff was attentive and caring. As a starter/appetizer we ordered sweet corn chicken soup with a spicy chicken preparation. We really liked the chicken drum stick like preparation in tasty sauce and also the spicy mixed fried rice which was part of the main Thai course. The main fish dish served on a platter was just delicious. Only suggestion for improvement is if possible to reduce the serving time whichwe felt was a little more (about more than 45 minutes). Would definitely come back again to dine/lunch in this reasonably priced great restaurant!
