Absolutely phenomenal food. We had the hot pot and duck stir fry, and the tasting platter. Can't wait to come back and try the other options, it did take a while to pick our meal as they all looked so delicious. Service was great, thanks...More

Good Thai Restaurant but not as good as most based on my opinion that almost all Thai restaurants are extremely good. Tried the $15 lunch menu special of sizzling beef which was a bit tough. Flavours were good and it was good value for money....More

Food was stunning, we had a shared platter starter and we could have just eaten that all night, mains of pad Thai and sizzling beef, service very friendly and fantastic. Great meal out. Would definitely recommend. Can't wait to come back. Thank you.

Excellent food, prepared to the exact heat I wanted. The hot pot was filling. The soft crab shell was the best crab I have eaten for a long time.

Met a friend for lunch as the cross-over location suited us. Driven past but never been in. Food and service were both very good, staff friendly and accommodating. Had trouble finding a park due to the location, but don't let it put you off going...More

Had lunch with my colleagues. I was on a diet and could only have soup. Ordered their chicken soup which was tasty. Just what I needed. Very refreshing taste. Also had the Tom Kha Kai which is a Thai coconut chicken soup with rice noodles....More

Our waiter was attentive. Our meals which were average in quality came quickly after ordering. No wifi was available.
