We've been here a couple of times, most recently while recovering from New Year celebrations and feeling a little wobbly. Service was very prompt, although we only sat down to eat at 2pm, by which point there were few other diners. Prices were reasonable: we paid about HK$160 each, including two lots of rice, pad thai, curry, tofu and some drinks. The particularly noteworthy dishes were the fried tofu with chilli, and the minced chicken and lettuce wraps were remarked on as awesome by all the non-vegetarians in our party.

The nicest table in the restaurant is the largest one: if you've got 11 friends then try to book the big table at the end of the restaurant. It then feels like you're in your own private space; with only 6 of us on a smaller table in the middle of the room, I did feel strangely exposed, but perhaps that's my hangover rather than the ambience of the restaurant.

Given the location, this restaurant offers great Thai food at very reasonable prices. Appetizer, main course and drink for about $200 HKD.
