Had 2 nice meals here. The fresh, barbecued Tilapia was one of the freshest, nicest fish that I have had. Simply pick it from the fresh selection. All the Thai food was tasty with good service. The free salad could be improved.

Mama was such a disappointment, but at least we can laugh. It's the only restaurant I've ever been in where we were presented with the bill before we had finished our starters! They told us they were closing so they wanted us to pay. When...More
