We ate lunch here while waiting for the Tram. It is a small place with friendly service. One of us has a red curry, and the other a green curry. It was ok but we’ve had much better.

We stopped in on a Monday night and enjoyed our visit. It was a little on the pricey side ($70 for two - shared main) but had a great atmosphere and good service. Food was delicious and fresh - authentic Thai.

We have a very nice meal here while sitting outside taking in the New Regent street atmosphere on a warm summer evening. Very pleasant and memorable. A good selection of beers too.

Reasonable tasty but very dry and tough lamb shank. The vegetable side was most probably made with frozen peas an a little veggie peelings to add. All in all a very disappointing meal given some of the good reviews. I was given a slight discount....More
