We really wanted to eat here and we figured since it was a Tuesday and a terribly, rainy night, we should be able to get a table at 7:30. Not happening! I had read that you should have a reservation and unfortunately for us, this...More

Tasty and huge serves, a curry with rice will feed three of you, it comes served in a casserole dish! Great value with a Beef Masaman around $14. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their food.

This place has excellent food, and the portions are very large. The restaurant is a bit small, and a little hard to find. The food is spicy, and yet not overly so. The Thai flavours come out well in the food. The red curry and...More

...I would want this food. I don't claim to be a connoisseur of Thai cuisine, but I enjoy it, and this place made probably one of the tastiest meals I've ever had. The ambiance isn't much, given its location. I arrived at the tail end...More

Stopped in for lunch twice this week and found the food was tasty and the quantity ample for about $11. You even get to select how spicy your order will be. One day it took a while to get our order, but the next day...More
