We have been coming here for four years and it occurred to me that I haven't sung its praises on Trip Advisor. The food here is very good and the staff are friendly and efficient.

This restaurant is in a super convenient location and has a huge menu. They offer plenty of Thai food and also a bunch of German and Middle Eastern Food. The Thai food is much more expensive than the restaurant next door (which is amazing) but the other food options are a nice break from Thai if you've overdosed, and they... More

We have been dining at The Family for eight years, always a favourite. The owner and his wife employ local staff, train them and treat each person as family. The service is friendly and efficient. Tasty meals at a fair price rounds out an overall pleasant dining experience. We highly recommend.
