Food was good and fresh. Felt like it was costly but worth. We had lobster grill and pineapple rice.

We liked the food, especially the thai three spice duck was lovely. The kitchen is open, it seems to be very clean. There is a faucet and soap in a corner which we appreciated. The staff was friendly and advised us well. There is a bit of a wait, but we saw that as a sign of fresh cooked food.... More

It was OK, the service was with smile and the food OK, but not enough to go back. And as there is so much construction around them it was really noisy

We went in a group of 8 and again in 12 so we ordered quite a lot and they served us pretty fast. The dishes were really awesome and satisfactory. Only one disadvantage.. the servers don't really speak English and we had to order slowly. Overall it is worth it! The prawn is huge! Must try!

If we had read reviews first, we would not have eaten here. And then we would have missed a lovely seafood lunch - green curry prawns, black pepper crabs and fried rice. With a beer and tea, 83.50 RM. Seemed reasonable price for very tasty food. Waiter explained how portions worked and checked that not too spicy for us. All... More

Being a vegetarian, there is not much option other than ordering fried rice. Really small portion with very little vegetables in it.

On a busy highway. Open restaurant with no real decor. But the food is excellent. The Thai green curry was as good or better than curry in Thailand. The soft shelled crabs were fantastic. The scallops were so, so. Nice limewater to start. I would definitely go again. The food was almost five star.

The price is quite dear considering the small servings. Not exactly an authentic Thai experience although the owner is supposedly Thai. As for the food, a little less mono sodium glutamate would be nice.

Nothing special at all! Spring rolls were OK Sweet and Sour Chicken was OK The fried squid with Sawadee Special sauce was disgusting....squid was overcooked and chewy and the sauce was foul! Luckily the local cats didn't hesitate in eating it! Go somewhere else
