Good service and good quality Thai Food, according to my Thai wife. I was impressed by the old building and the way it had been renovated. Definitely a place to visit

Good place to stop some thai food. It's very busy when we were there but the waiters were very friendly and took really good care of us despite being a bit stressed as their manager had called in sick. We had some really nice food and I definitely recommend the place.
