“Very disappointing food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

My boyfriend and I came to this restaurant on a Saturday night and they were able to accommodate for us easily but unfortunately that is where my positive review ends - I ordered the beef pra long song which is always my favorite thai meal but the sauce completely lacked in flavour, there wasn't very much beef and it didn't even seem to be good quality (stringy and fatty). I think they may cook up all meats and vegetables together and then put a sauce over the top and microwave it because some parts of my meal was cold and others boiling hot. I will definitely not be going back here.

“Good Food, Great Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

Have eaten here several times now, family visits and friends. Food is great and service is good too. BYO keeps the prices reasonable which means we can eat out more often

“Idiots work here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

Ordered home delivery here twice and same thing happened both times:

We asked for no chilli and we got so much chilli we didn't enjoy the meal
We ordered a drink and they never brought it and just gave the 3 bucks back.

Won't be going back here as the staff cannot even deliver what is asked.

“Great food and very friendly staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013 via mobile

Great food at a reasonable price. A wide selection of spices from very mild to super hot. Plenty of food for value. Will be dining there again soon
