I went with a group of seven for a birthday celebration dinner and everything was fantastic! Arrived on time and the table had a birthday card from the restaurant. That was a first. We started with drinks. Half the group had Whiskey sours that were quite strong and good. I had a special of the house Mojito which had mango juice – very good but a bit too sweet for me. We started with a few appetizers. The plain garlic noodles were really delicious. We also ordered the crab and garlic noodles also – very good but could have used a bit more crab. We ordered the traditional shrimp spring rolls without pork, and they were excellent with a great hoisin dipping sauce. The green papaya salad with the beef on the side was also very fresh and great dressing. The last appetizer was the salt and pepper calamari, which was very tender, nicely crispy.
For the main dishes we ordered the clay pot cod – which was delicious, a lot of sweet sauce and fresh fish. The shaking beef was really great – very tender beef, great sauce. For me the best dish of the evening was the Tamarine prawn dish, served over soft rice noodles with a fantastic tamarind sauce. The chili eggplant was good but not stellar like the other dishes.
The wine list was extensive – a bit pricey but nothing outrageous.
The service was impeccable – there when you needed them, not when you didn’t want them. There was constant attention to filling water glasses, removing plates. We dined for a few hours, no one rushed us.
The place was very busy for a mid week night. High energy but not over the top noisy where you couldn’t carry on a conversation. The bar was also quite active.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. Everything was fantastic including our dinner, the restaurant, and the service.
