The food was absolutely delicious - we particularly liked the "emerald chicken" - strongly recommend a visit.

While the food was good, some of the dishes did not meet my expectation in terms of fine Thai cuisine, but may be this is what to meet different palates. The menu was extensive but included other Asian food. Wish they kept to Thai!
