“Great food at great price”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Went and had one of their 11 dollar lunch packages. My partner is from Malaysia and can cook a bit . She was very impressed with the quality of the food as indeed was I . Portions a good size and not the miniscule plates served up as some lunch " specials " Very tasty , friendly staff who gave us free green tea. We were very happy and nearly went back the next day and in fact wished we had .

“Good Thai, cool atmosphere.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

A bit on the pricier side, but the food was good, served Thai spicy", as we requested, at a pleasant, outdoor table. Located on "Eat Street", it was fun to people-watch, as we waited (and waited) for our meal.

The service was sub-par, in our opinion very disorganized and slow - it took 10 minutes for someone to take our drink orders, and another 10 for the drinks to arrive (nothing complicated, either - beer and an iced tea). The food came out eventually, but I was never able to catch the server's (ANY of them) attention for another beer.

The poor service marred an otherwise good meal. If you're not in any hurry, give it a shot.

This would have been one of the tastiest thai meals I have had in a while. The presentation of the meal was fantastic too. Great service.

“Great Thai but watch pricing”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

I have been here a few times and the food is great every time! Do be careful though, particularly with take out as I have been over charged quite a few times now.
