Decided to try out this restaurant after reading all the good reviews here. It was disappointing. Not authentic Thai food but just another Thai restaurant located in a popular local tourist area, hence the over priced food. Won't go back again.

Great Thai food, fantastic flavours - genuine to authentic Thai taste. Try the green chicken curry and the green mango salad. Beautiful breeze blowing and great view of the harbour.

We ate at this restaurant two years ago and enjoyed it. Its good to see that the standards have not declined. Its good Thai food and a very reasonable price. Its on the waterfront so very nice to have the sea breeze or watch the sunset.

The food is good. Price reasonable. The place is clean, you have a nice view and fresh air. The manager check that the customers are happy.
