Fish cake entree was outstanding. Ginger stir fry with fish good, salted caramel dessert delicious. Good range of wine and beer. Spacious, I estimate 70 seats for diners. Chairs are not very comfortable. Service went awol for a while despite small numbers of diners.

Had the Phad Thai for lunch here and it was good value and delicious. Also tried their Mango with sticky rice dessert which was also pretty good. Food came out pretty fast and there was good ambience.
