I have heard about its reputation for a while. I usually went there once a month. My other half really like this place and so do I. I love its Pad Thai and orange juice with bits in it! Mostly recommended.

Pad thai is too sweet for my taste. Their batch process of cooking is nice to watch but i did not like the taste of their pad thai. They also have a stall in Icon Siam.
