The restaurant is well run and the food is good. However, the prices are slightly too high considering an overall quality that can't be defined as "premium". My impression is that the place is mainly a turistic one. I have been in other places in...More

I had the seafood Thai curry which was a mountain of seafood in a delicate light curry sauce. Seafood was fresh, sauce was succulent and the appetizers were equally as impressive. Michelin flavor. Get reservations ahead of time-it will be worth it
