This little slice of heaven prepares Thai style breakfasts and lunches. Pleasant atmosphere in a tiny spot on the main street, First Avenue in Ladysmith, BC. Curries, soups, stir fry and take out. Very reasonable prices in a clean place. Vegan available for most dishes.

Martin is a fine dining chef, proven in fine dining industry but loves running his own open kitchen restaurant. Absolutely outstanding food! Martin will accommodate food allergies and cook something safe, without contamination, right in front of your eyes. Friendly staff, excellent service, low prices.
