We have been backpacking for a while so trying to keep things in a budget. This place looked so lovely we didn't think we could afford it but it's so reasonable and a cute little spot! We had a curry and vegetables with cashew nuts! Both really nice! Quick service and lovely staff!

The massaman curry here is amazing, the chicken was really good quality and just fell apart like it had been stewed in the curry sauce. Delicious. Also had the chicken fried rice in another visit which was good too.

This restaurant is nice and quiet but the food is not too much good. The rations are small and the food is not very tasty. We asked for fried rice with vegetables and it was insipid. The waiters don't speak too much english and they weren't very helpful. The prices are a little bit expensive.
