I used to go to this Thai restaurant when my mother was still alive and since her passing it has been hard to go to her favorite restaurants without her. Nevertheless I decided it was time to honor her by going there again. It was as if time stood still because the quality of their dishes and the taste still... More

I wanted to try this place because it's often busy and I live nearby. We ordered the tom yam goong, whole fish in lime and minced chicken with lettuce leaves. All disappointed. The tom yam was best but lacked sourness and was too sweet. We asked for limes to give the dry minced chicken some flavour. The whole fish in... More

As a South Asian, this was the worst Thai food I have ever eaten. The food is more a mix of Chinese and Thai. The pork neck dish tasted terrible. If you are looking for a Chinese-Thai restaurant, this may be it. But for me looking for authentic Thai, this is a thorough disappointment.

My wife had craving for seafood and we had very positive experiences when we ate Thai food in Bangkok and Singapore where I live, on many occasions. So we decided to try Thai food along with some seafood dishes, rather than try the Chinese restaurants along the seafront of Sai Kung. The restaurant I went to was May's Sawaddee Thailand... More

We used to eat here more often but had taken a break after a couple of sub par meals a few years back. Tried again recently and had a decent lunch. Menu included expected Thai dishes. Staff are Thai and on the whole, service is attentive and pretty good. On this occasion we had the minced pork with basil and... More

Usually come here for weekday lunch. Great variety of main courses - curry, fried rice, noodles, etc. For about HKD60, you get a main course, a soup and a drink. The specialty drink here is the long ngan juice.

We had a pretty average lunch here. I had an oyster omelette, which tasted really good. The presentation of the dish looked awful however - it was a scrambled mess. My wife's hot and sour fish dish looked more appetising but tasted peculiar. We had to leave most of that dish, purely because of the taste. I wouldn't hurry back... More

We were visiting Hong Kong for a week staying with friends who live just outside of Sai Kung - this is one of their favourite restaurants and we managed to get a table for 4 with ease (5 minute wait). Loved the curried crab in bread roll (novel and very tasty) and the green Thai curry is to die for... More
