I ate here tonight and the food was good, however the waiter had terrible body odor that stank out the entire restaurant. Really, this is not hyperbole it was terrible......

Party of 5. Staff who served us had difficulty understanding what we wanted to order off the menu, and they weren't familiar with what the restaurant served. It took a long time for the entrees to come out. (Two very slowly drunk drinks later) Portion sizing was good, and the menu was brilliantly diverse. We had a warm welcome and... More

My husband and I came here for dinner and ordered a starter, main and dessert. We were very impressed with the whole lot. There is a very extensive menu to choose from with lots of yummy flavours. Our orders arrived quickly, and were served in unique ways. We will definitely be back!

From the outset, we were greeted warmly and any questions answered. The atmosphere was in fitting with the restaurant's name, seating was comfortable and not cramped. Service was excellent, not rushed but not tardy either. Meals were piping hot and beautifully presented; drinks were well chilled. Not many guests on the evening our party of 5 was there, but even...

We went to the Viet Thai Village on our 1st night in Hamilton. Lovely decor, great staff, extensive menu, and great service. My food, sea food curry was ok, not as spicy as I'd expected, but tasty. Overall, from the friends that were there, it was an average experience. Oh, interesting notice in the gents toilets too! 😃

Booked a table and lucky we did as it is only a small restuarant and was busy. Service was quick and they make an awesome Pina Colada. I had the chicken and peanut sauce...love the Thai peanut sauce and of course with rice. Price only a little bit more than other places but nice atmosphere.

Went here on Friday night for a friend's birthday dinner. A group of about 18 - 20. It was ages until waiting staff even came to our table. I would have assumed they would have recommended the banquet menu, but they took all our orders individually for entrée and mains. Most of us ordered similar entrees so not much of... More
