We went for lunch today on a beautiful sunny day, it's our favourite Thai restaurant . It wasn't busy when we were seated & our springs rolls & cokes arrived & then we waited & waited. Then I noticed groups who came after U.S. Had their lunch. A lady at the next table sent her order back twice. 3rd time... More

We have visited this establishment on several occasions and been happy with food and service. Tonight they got it all wrong. We had booked a table at 7. We received no attention until 7.20. Food came extremely fast but they forgot to serve drink for one of our party. At 7.30 my wife found a BEETLE in her food. The... More

A more obliging owner you could not find. Did gluten free for us. and a menu for 5. Decided to have the banquet at $32 a head as that seemed cheapest way to go. The a la carte menu specials seemed slightly more pricey than usual Thai. Everything was very tasty, the lamb, prawns, chicken Massaman curry and beef and... More

Called for a quick lunch before an appointment. It was busy but our food arrived quite quickly. The pumpkin soup tasted very home made and was delicious. Plenty of good tasty and interesting choices. We sat in the outer area over looking the marina, it felt like we were on holiday. Will definitely be going there again.

We always enjoy a great Thai from here and it never disappoints in flavour. However, I found that when coming for dinner with a large number of people the waitress struggled a little. We felt she should know where each order is going rather than yelling out orders to us each time food came to the table. Don't get me... More

My husband and I booked a table for 7pm on a Saturday. Food was delicious once it was finally served. We did not get our entrees until 7.45 pm. Our mains were served at 8.30pm but only after we enquired as we observed other diners arriving after us being served their meals before us. The waitress was actually surprised by... More

This place used to be quite good ( i dont generally like thai food but when i was here 6 months ago, it was so good i actually changed my mind about thai food, but this time pad thai was... sticky.... and the curry was too watered down but more importantly, the duck was really dry and had no duck...
