If you like Chicken Satay, and especially if you like the peanut sauce that typically accompanies it, this restaurant has it. It is also very convenient for those staying at the Rim Resort. Other food we had was very good too, and the breakfast was very adequate.

The restaurant is attached to the Rim Hotel - along along the old city's canal. Stopped by for a late lunch. Staff seemed very shy. One thing to note - speak slowly. If all fails, repeat yourself. Order Thai food and some wine. Food arrived and it was surprisingly tasty. The mien kam and traditional northern noodle dish was deliciously... More

We have had a few meals here, as we were staying at the Rim. We found the food very nice, good portions and fresh. The staff were very friendly. Lovely sitting on the balcony with a overhead fan on.

We came here as it was close to our hotel and had good ratings on trip advisor. Such a disappointment. On the plus side, we the restaurant was clean and we did not pick up any bugs. The food was hot, but quite bland. Nothing to write home about at all. The service was so very slow here. We were... More

impressive building and attentive staff but meal was disappointing : fresh spring rolls appeared to contain strips of spam, salmon was overcooked and stir fried morning glory was mushy (wok not hot enough) : perhaps we chose a bad day but they need to try much harder

We stayed at the hotel and so had breakfast here, lunch by the pool and cakes one day and service was quick, polite and everything was tasty. The cakes are a treat, banana pie and small round truffley things!
