Ate here twice whilst staying in Hamilton. The chef's specials really are 'special'. Never have we tasted as beautiful duck as at this restaurant. The other meals ordered were terrific as well. The service was friendly, prompt and professional. These people really know their food. We wish you all the best for the future and if we ever visit Hamilton... More

great service, fast prep, good price.. but the flavours were weak and the meal was underwhelming- may be fine for those not used to the Thai flavours but was rather lacking compared to typical Thai meals.

We were staying at a nearby motel and arrived at the restaurant around 8.30pm on a Friday. A lot of other restaurants close early so it was nice to find this place still open until 10pm. Food quality was just superb and we had asked for spicy food and got exactly what we wanted. Some places are reluctant to serve... More

Such a nice restaurant to eat at. Lovely staff and such yummy food. We always get our meals and share them which is a really nice way to try a little bit of everything. Staff are always so friendly. The sizzling pork with the satay sauce is to die for.

This is a quaint restaurant with a fairly extensive menu. The food is delicious with the service being quick and efficient. There is a reasonable choice of wine and some stunning garnishes are provided with the meals

A small, cosy restaurant not far from the gyms that infest this part of Victoria St, making parking a somewhat haphazard affair. This is our local restaurant and Onnie, our hostess, is friendly and amenable, and has taught me most of the Thai I know! The food is always of a high standard with lovely flavours. Washed down with a... More

Service was a little slow. Tables are a bit crammed in together. Ok for the price. Food average but tasty. Cheaper to take away than dine in the restaurant. Would go back.

Hubby says very good. I say average. My dish of cashew nut prawns was nice but the sauce was a little thin on the ground and his was the pork satay..very peanutty but lacking a bit of freshness I found. It was a decent meal but I've had a lot better elsewhere.

Expected better quality food considering that this place is more expensive than the other Thai restaurant further up the road but was very disappointed. My chicken jungle curry was all cheap vegetables but my husband reported his green Thai curry was passable. Very stingy portion of rice. We will not be returning.

We dined in and had entree and mains, all food was very fresh and tasty. Loved the curry puffs. the pastry was soft and flakey. We had BBQ pork which was really nice as was the ginger and garlic chicken dish. We left very full. Shame no BYO or licensed wine in the venue. Would have enjoyed a good white... More
