I went there with a friend because of its location. I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and delicious food. The beef noodle dish I ordered was a large portion with plenty of meat and just the right degree of spiciness. The restaurant was quite full, which to me signals that I am not alone in my favourable rating.

The food was OK. There are much better Pad Thai in town. The issue came after a few hours when I felt a need to go to the bathroom. The person that was with me and got vermiceli had issues with the stomach for that day and the next one. The staff friendly and nice. Sorry but no second time... More

I spent 40.00 and after 2 bites, threw away everything. This is the worst green curry I ever had and it smells like the chicken was still alive. I'm sick to my stomach. I'll never eat here again. Waste of money and now I'm nauseated. The pho was bland. I'm literally turned off from thai food for ever.

Bland, no flavour, so much better out there, try the place on Merivale road, its night and day. I went to this place with a friend and it was just terrible, the watery sauce smelt like dirty dishwater, the chicken was dry. I spent my evening hugging the toilet bowl, go elsewhere!

This is a very comfortable environment for lunch or dinner. The service was excellent. Fast and friendly. Even shook our hands and asked our names. Super friendly. Was only there for soup but still the soups were hot and fresh. Can't wait to go back for some more selections. Recommended

We go here regularly since it is close to work and have never been disappointed. The service is always good and I must say they are efficient and fast! We were in and out in 30-45 min which is great for a work lunch. The spring rolls are delicious, as well as the vermicelli and the pho. You can't go... More

It had been several years since we ate at this restaurant. We had however purchased chicken rolls for take out a few time. There were 5 of us and we had ordered all different dishes. Everyone enjoyed their choice. Everything was delicious. The service was quick and friendly.

Good Thai food with good service. Loved their curry dish. Good service and friendly waiter. Prices are very reasonable. The decor could use a bid of upgrading and Thai music would enhance the ambiance.

My son and I were in and out for lunch in less than 30 minutes. The staff was friendly, replenished our water frequently. Our appetizer came about 30 seconds after we ordered it. The food was plentiful and delicious!!
