“Oasis of calm and deliciousness”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

My husband and I were staying at the nearby Hyatt Regency, and we ended up eating here 3 times in 4 days. The food was consistently delicious, the ingredients fresh, the service was courteous (especially kind was the owner Kam, who added a personal touch to service) and this served as an oasis of calm in a very bustling part of town.

“Stay away.....terrible service that will put you off the food”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We ate here one night during our stay in HK last week. We had booked in a movie at 9pm and arived at the restaurant around 7 thinking 2 hours was ample time to eat and then catch the movie. We were received very coldly by the staff who seem to be on a slo-mo drug (the guy/girl in glasses just refuses to look up even if you scream right at her face to call out). While we sat, we had to shout at top of our lungs to get some attention even though only 2 other tables were occupied and there were 3 staff who were busy chatting or going about their business refusing to attend to customers. When we weren't heard after several attempts, i almost shouted 'excuse meeeee' then an elderly staff came to take our order. I showed him a vegetarian fried rice dish on the menu and asked if we could have it with chicken, he said 'of course' without asking me further or confirming he got me right. Half hour later he turned up with the wrong dish (no rice, only chicken with veggies). When I complained, he started retaliating and blaming me for placing the wrong order. I showed him the menu and explained that I had specifically asked for the dish exactly on the menu only with chicken added to it. How could he assume I didnt want rice. Then he said weird things like he couldnt see properly in light etc. That made me think the whole staff was on some kind of drug (sarcastic!!). Anyways they again took around half hour to get my husband's dish which was horrible according to him anyway. The food was average overall but the terrible service made us miss our movie and we were so upset by the time food arrived that we didnt really enjoy it. I would never go back to a place where the staff does not even acknowledge you, even if the food is okay.

“Thai dining experience that's as good as it gets.”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Being familiar with the Sydney version of this authentic Thai restaurant, my wife and I had to look it up on our recent visit to HK. It was as good as ever, from the congenial host Kham, to the wonderful dishes that we let him choose for us. The spicy prawn sashimi and duck curry were particularly memorable. Kham's knowledge and love of wine shows through in his superb wine list, which caters for every taste. If you love Thai food and great wine this is a dining experience not to be missed!

“It was my favorite Thai restaurant in Australia, so was excited to try in HK. Fantastic”
Reviewed 30 July 2013 via mobile

With all the great food in Hong Kong this is a must try. What a pleasure it was to be served by Kham and let him choose the food and wine. He always gets it right Started off with and aged Riesling from Alsace, prawn soup was yum Beatle leaves and the most awesome grapefruit and prawn salad I had to have my fav red duck curry more great dishes and more wines matched by Kham. A truly great night out in honk kong Look forward to when I am back to go again. Great food awesome wine list and truly great host .
