Terribly overpriced Thai food which was below par. Miniature serving sizes coupled with lack of taste and texture. Ordered the beef massaman and the green chicken curry. The beef massaman was ok at least edible but the green curry was watery and the chicken pieces were thick and undercooked. Far too much chilli for a green curry. Cost over $80 for the two meals and one beer. Very expensive meal. The atmosphere was nice and the location at the esplanade was nice. Overall, will never come here again.

This would be the worst restaurant I have been to in my life. After ordering we waited almost 3 hours before we were served. The meal size was another story it was all plate and not much to eat. The food was very ordinary. The service left a lot to be desired - there wasn't any. The food was overpriced and very average, it couldn't be called Thai. This place is a RIPOFF, don't waste your money. Go somewhere else.

We ate here on Christmas day. We had made a reservation and they had put us at a great table on the outside terrace overlooking the ocean. The staff was super friendly and the food was excellent. We had a great Christmas dinner here!

Very very slow service.. 2 hours due to possible mix up.

Entrées and main meals expensive, considering their was more plate than actual meal.

Food was ok

Thank Tristan R
