I have been to the restaurant a few times and always found the service and food to be good. Tonight the food was good but the service was poor. We waited over an hour for a meal; but we still didn't hold it against the restaurant as anyone can have a bad day. After waiting over an hour the waitress... More

Dropped in for quick lunch during a spot of shopping on the Parade and found the food and service to our liking. The friendly staff served our red kangaroo curry that was well cooked and very tasty and the Thai beef salad was super fresh and also very tasty. A nice glass of Adelaide Hills wine completed a pleasant meal.... More

It was a very busy evening so we were prepared for a wait after we ordered. No food by 40 minutes and we were assured it was on its way. It took over an hour for our meals to arrive. Nice seafood dish but the Masaman Beef lacked flavour. Previous visit wasn't great so not coming back.

Had dinner here on Saturday night. We had the roast duck which was amazing and green chicken curry which was pretty hot. We enjoy heat but it had chilies in the dish!! Fine environment not particularly special ambience if that is important. Service was fast and fine.

Saturday night, no booking, we were lucky to be seated and served at this busy restaurant within 15 minutes as we needed to leave for the theatre. Excellent young male waiter. Tasty, hot and spicy basil and chilli beef stirfry, and chicken flat noodle dish. The two glasses of house white were expensive, around $10 each, and later that night... More

This restaurant has changed its food to try and be more Thai, hoping they can be as good as a very popular Thai restaurant close by. I has not worked. The food is below standard. I will not go back.
