“quality may vary, but in principle very good”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

The place was the first thai or thai inspired restaurant in Ljubljana. At first quality was excellent, then it dropped dramatically. Now the food is good to very good. The service is ok. What I like the most is the decor. The erstaurant is in a socialist building from the 70-ies, which used to be a bookshop. They have rebnovated it in an excellent manner, not hiding its architectural features but emphasising them.

Good looking restaurant with interesting interior and friendly stuff. The food was great. I´d recommend their starters and coctails which are delicious.

“Great food and decor”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

The food was great and the restaurant is large and very modern and hip. It is very clean and the bathrooms are really nice. Lots of young people are usually eating here. It is hard to find good Chinese food in Europe so this was a delight. It is a little bit more expensive for the food portions that I think it needs to be.

“Tai food in Ljubljana not like in Tailand but good”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

They start serving lunch at 12:00 and then it is fool of people. From around offices a lot of people are regular gusts. They have daily specials with small price discounts and regular menu. Price is affordable but not low. Service is good ambient is OK but nothing special. If you want to have nice lunch and chat with your friend it is the place to go.
80% of clients are women so if you are on hunting spree go for it ;-) .

“Great food, terrible service”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

We went as a group of around 20 people to celebrate a birthday. As Asian restaurants go (and I know many), the setting was very nice, interior was well done, but music definitely didn't sit with the ambiance (played mostly US and UK hits).
The food menu is good, we ended up choosing Thai food and food wise it was a lovely experience. They also take Student coupons, if by any chance you are there on Erasmus or have a friend who is studying in Slovenia (good discount)
The service however was actually appalling. Our waiter (Ervin) was extremely rude, always in a hurry, mixed up several of our orders and all in all you sensed that he couldn't wait for us to leave.

If they had better service, this place would get a better rating. But for now, I recommend other Asian restaurants in Ljubljana if you want to have a nice evening.
