Have been visiting this restaurant for many years now and the food is always fantastic. Always cooked to perfection with an amazing taste. I refuse to have Thai at any other place. Decor inside the restaurant is also nice.

Decided to dine here again after 12 months and the food was still as good as it was the first time I dined here. Place was house full and people still coming through the door only to be turned away so ensure you make a...More

The night started with attentive staff but I was confused with why the menu was at least half of what the take away menu/pamphlet had to offer but we ordered from the take away menu anyways. After we ordered our entrees and mains. We agreed...More
