We ordered fried king prawns as an entree dish, with green curry with chicken and red penang curry with duck. All cost over $60 and portions were small. Everything tasted very good but there were hardly any vegetables in the duck curry and most of the duck was just skin and fat, rather than meat. Customers were also placed along... More

Dinner one night. The place seems to have about twice the number of tables that they really need so every thing is really cramped. The service was good. Prawn and Thai spring roll appetizers were too soggy and dark as if fried in older oil. The sizzling chicken special was ok, but the peanut sauce was way too sweet. It... More

Quite expensive given what they serve. Quality is average at best but they charge as if it is fine dining. Too much sugar in their sauces. Not very impressed and not going back.

Tom Yum soup, phad thai, pineapple rice, stir fired... More

We had lunch on a Sunday. They open only at 12. It would be better 11:30. Food is okay. Stir fry meats and vegetables is good. Both noodles that we ordered are a bit salty. Overall okay.

We ate a mixed platter for entree and I had pad thai for main which was amazing. I cant remember what my husband ordered but he enjoyed it. We were too full for desert. Service was excellent. Tables are very cramped together I struggled to get to my seat and im a small person. Other than that it was excellent.
