In a calm ambience, we had the best Curry in town. The sauces are full of flavours and the vegetables are fresh and tasteful. Definitely going back everything we want Thai.

This is a fantastic restaurant. Food is great and authentic. The mango salad is fantastic and topped with fresh delicious shrimp. The pad Thai is very good but a little on the sweet side for me but the other guests at our table loved it....More

It's like they have a fresh herb garden growing in their kitchen. This is some unbelievably fresh and tasty Thai stir fry. They always use fresh herbs and spices. Seating is limited so make a reservation if they take them. Lunch crowd is usually busy.
