This restaurant os truly an overlooked place in Colborne and the locals don't seem to realize what they are missing. Authentic Thai food well prepared and presented. Service is a bit slow, but adds to the experience.

We visited for the 1st time on a Friday evening and were glad to have an excellent table in the front window space. Dining room is not overcrowded with tables so you can actually have a conversation. The owner/waiter is a personable fellow with a good sense of humour. Don't expect things to go at "city-speed", this is Colborne. Food came well paced and obviously fresh from the kitchen. We enjoyed spring rolls, Pad Thai, a green curry, cashew chicken, spicy beef (medium at most), large bowl of steamed rice for the table, and the honey fried bananas with ice cream which are an essential (IOHO) conclusion for a Thai meal. Good prices, comfortable space, friendly service and well made food. What else can you ask for?

We stopped in to see what the place was like (since it is the only thing open in Colborne on Sunday). What a hole. First of all you shouldn't have the drunken customers seating you or taking your drink order. It was our first indication to just leave. She had to come back because she couldn't remember the order! Finally the ACTUAL waiter came over and took our drink order gave us menus. We gave him our food order - Pad Thai, Large Greek Salad and a Small Caesar Salad. After using the bathrooms which were absolutely disgusting - our order finally arrived. I got my large Greek which looked horrible. The tomatoes were from about a week ago, the lettuce was brown and the dressing was right out of a Kraft dressing bottle. It tasted like soggy salad with old black olives on top. My daughter received her salad which was suppose to be Caesar instead was another Greek salad - she ordered CAESAR. I took one bite of my salad and found a huge hair in the next forkful. Ahhhhhh!!!! Come on!!!!!! That was it - my husband said we are leaving. He told the waiter we were leaving and they threatened to call the police! Didn't even try to make it better or apologize. And by the way his Pad Thai never even arrived. Please for the love of God never eat in this place. I am so glad we left. We paid for the drinks and that was it. No way I was paying for that garbage. If you are the only place opened on a Sunday you might want to be amazing and try and corner the market and have people sing your praises!!! Never going to happen with this place.

We just stopped into this place on our way home from wine tasting in Prince Edward County. We were hungry and there was not much choice between Colborne and Cobourg! We were very happily surprised. The food was good, actually, very good ( not great). we ate Thai. The prices are really excellent! The owners, Harry and Vanna, do the hosting and the cooking and are full of stories in many languages! We were the only ones in the place but it was early on a Saturday night. Do yourself a favour and stop in!

I have yet to find as good as Pad Thai and from here... Its only about 10$$ and its a huge portion.... Also the spring rolls are amazing

Its owned by a sweet couple, she does all the cooking and he serves

Sometimes service is slow since they dont have help but take out or waiting is worth it
