The main courses were pretty decent. We had green curry, asparagus and aubergine. But the desserts were above average. Try the water chestnuts in sago, steamed banana in coconut milk and cendol in gula Melaka.

Music was too loud though. Not great for conversations.

There are tons of Thai restaurants about and while this is one of the better ones, that doesn't justify a price level around double of anywhere else. Seriously guys - RM 39 for a bloody green curry - that is a rip off - pure and simple. Even if they made it out of pure beef tenderloin (which they definitely did not) there's no way that price can be justified.

Went there on a busy Thursday evening for a late night dinner. Place is quite simple and down to earth, but kitchen authentic and fresh. Tom Yum soup was thai style spicy and tasted fantastic. Also the spicy chicken with pineapple was excellent. Definitely recommended and one of the best Thai's for me.

A friend had heard of this place, and we trekked over expecting excellent Thai food. I won't be able to tell you if it is or not. The waiter took our party of 4's order from memory, and dutifully repeated it back. An hour and 15 minutes later we asked about our food .... what food? What order? They had simply forgotten.

But to add insult to injury, until I confronted the manager with this unacceptable service, the errant waiter wanted us to pay for the two bottles of water and one beer we had nursed for over an hour. Really?

On top of that, smoking was rampant in the place - who would ever know if the food was good ... you wouldn't be able to smell it.
