The service was nice, but the food was gross. It makes McDonald's for seem quite fresh. My girlfriend and I both feel mehh now. We got takeaway, and the restaurant was quite busy so we thought it must be good - but it wasn't, even with its high TripAdvisor score. We wish we ate something else and saved our $40.... More

Pleasant and quick service at a good price for a very tasty Thai meal. The decor added to a satisfying dining experience.

Our family 'go to' restaurant for family celebrations or just a night out. Have never been disappointed with a meal. The hardest decision is whether to go with a previous favourite or try something new - either way we know we will have a delicious dinner. Recommend you make a reservation for a Saturday night

Mostly catering to western palates and takeaway crowds, so nothing more than serviceable. Not a multitude of great choices in the town though, so why not?

After a disappointing expereince elsewhere we went to this restaurant. It was busy but we were promptly shown to a table. The service was attentive and the food tasty and well presented. Prices were reasonable. People were coming and going all evening. It is clearly popular, and rightly so.

The welcoming staff seat you quickly and the efficiency continues as you order, have your water glass filled and shortly after you meals arrive. This quick service and well priced lunch dishes mean most seats are filled most days. A delicious lunch for ten dollars is such good value.

My Son and I ate here and enjoyed our experience. We had Mixed Entrees and considering my Son doesn't like peanuts, was surprised he enjoyed the tender Satay Chicken! The other components also pretty good. Sweet and Sour Pork was excellent. Banana was a nice addon not usually found. My Son scoffed down his deep fried banana and ice cream.... More

This restaurant is right in middle of town. Food and restaurant are authentic. Staff very friendly and great service. We had takeaways but is also sit down. Fantastic selection. As a vegetarian I was in heaven. I had a curry with tofu. Yum. It was very reasonably priced to. A steady stream of people is always a good sign and... More
