“Nice food but very bad service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

I have tried several times before.They served one of the best Authentic Thai foods but they really need to improve their service. I was on wait list (2 of us), followed by another 4 packs who were on wait list too. After like 40 minutes, there was one small table available (can be either for 2 or 4 persons). They gave to that 4 packs rather me and my friend. That was the worst service I have experienced.

“Thumbs Up!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Seemed like it's a small family-run Thai restaurant. The atmosphere was casual. Mostly locals. Menu wasn't extensive neither was it a short order kitchen. Price was reasonable. Food quality was very good and tasty. Staff was very friendly and the service was great!
Highly recommended!

“Over priced Thai food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Not sure why we chose a thai resturant after just coming from Thailand, but we was just passing and a storm was coming across. It was overpriced for what you pay in Thailand. Service was slow. There was a lot of staff about but it took time to get their attention for service. Food was ok nothing special.

“Awesome food, service & atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

It's the total package. Good food. Good service. Good Atmosphere. Only downside is that they don't offer Thai Tea (ice milk tea)...that was surprising since I would consider it a Thai food favorite.

Very strong taste of thai which I like the most. Must the steamfish or the Tom Yam soup. Go earlier to avoid disappointment coz its a small restaurant,
