It's an interesting concept. There's a "à la carte" menu, and there's a menu for "all you can eat". It has smaller plates, allowing you to try multiple choices. But mind you, it adds up pretty quick. I over ate, but everything was really good, so it wasn't hard to finish the plates. Tania was very friendly and helpful, and... More

"Thai spicy" means Thai spicy, which is nice. Great experience with the food and staff! Can't wait to return. Located a very short drive from Parliament and the ByWard Market.

Went for lunch. Small party of three. Ordered two Pad Thai and a green curry. Received it 70 minutes later. So much for our early afternoon work engagements. Only one server when there should be at least two. Don't open the second section if you can't provide proper service. And they should have the courtesy to warn patrons that service... More

Excellent food - we enjoyed. But the waiter somehow said we were short of 20$ which I am convinced was not accurate

I was here with two other couples, and it was my first time, but one of the couples has been coming here for years. The restaurant is very close to government office buildings, with not much else around. There is some parking right across the street, and other street parking close by. If you order a la carte, there is... More

Second visit. On first one (Summer 2015), the 'A la carte' choice was amazing. This time, the 'All you can eat' was good on average. However, the waiter was slightly arrogant and did not make us feel comfortable and cozy. At 6:45, we were asked to speed-up our choices of food, as they wanted to close by 8-8:30. This was... More

Seemed like a good idea, and was close to hotel. Staff were very friendly, but food was average at best. Both dishes I tried were greasy, something I'm not used to in Thai food. As a result it all tasted basically the same. Very disappointing.

Charged me an extra 3$ for shrimp instead of chicken in pad Thai which was already 15$ (I had seriously 3 shrimps in my plate) and the server told me : sorry I didn't have time to mention it to you I was too busy. AND it didn't say that on the menu either. Never coming back...

I went for lunch with some colleagues who had eaten there before and liked it. I was underwhelmed. I had chicken with basil and chili. I didn't think the soup starter was very good nor was my main course. They were also skimpy with the rice. My colleagues said their Penang curry was good. Service was mediocre at best. With... More
