Came on first day for lunch and never been away. Food is varied and always of a high standard always prepared fresh and served by extremely pleasant staff. Would highly recommend.

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident. The service and staff were outstanding and the food was delicious. We kept coming back to their great hospitality and great thai food.

I ordered the chicken pad Thai and mixed vegetables, I didn't think it was possible to mess up pad Thai in Thailand but somehow they did, it was just so bland, didn't taste anything at all! The...

Simply a fine place to dine. Typically Thai with a lot of great Thai Food and more, more, more. All served with a smile by the lovely staff. In a side street, so not as noisy as many other restaurants. Staff takes care that you sit airconditioned and welcomes you with a fresh, cold little towel. Feel home and enjoy... More

Breakfast thru Dinner, you can't go wrong! This is an excellent restaurant. The selection of Thai food is as good as you can find anywhere, the afternoon/evening cocktails are superb, and yes, you can have breakfast here as well! One of the best in the area, if you are looking. We had two meals here, and could not have been... More

The load was about 40% but anyway we had to wait more than 1h10mins before they brought a fish which was really dissapointing. The fish was average, like everyone who have access to google may cook himself at... More

Dear Sergey Thank you very much for your time to rate us, even when you gave us only 2 stars. When I asked my staff about this issue they have explained to me the following, the restaurant was full, that because you had to wait for the food, you ordered a whole boiled fish the boiling takes about 30 to...
