Me and my wife came by today for lunch, place was practically empty, we ordered starters and main. 40 minutes went by with no sign of starters, despite other diners who came in after being served there entire meals. We asked the waitress and eventually about ten minutes later part of our starter arrived (dumplings, no sauce) along with some... More

Food was very tasty and portions generous enough to fill you. Living in Thailand you always expect second best when travelling outside of the country but the food here was very authentic. Only disappointment was they were Filipino waiters. Should have been Thai in a Thai restaurant.

Thursday afternoon. Restaurant 100% empty. Staff tried to seat us right next to the entrance, which we declined. Food was nice, except: We also ordered a meal to take away. Every time we mentioned this, the waiter's reply was: "That one we can order later!" I appreciate the thought to keep the takeout fresh -- but, surprise! We finished our... More

Came here with friends and we ordered a few dishes. They were all good sized for sharing. Very authentic Thai food and staff were Thai, too. So it felt like being in Thailand for a while. We truly enjoyed all dishes. Definitely recommended. Parking is relatively easy but for a small fee.

Nice ambience and commendable dishes. In spite not even half full audience, the service level does not commensurate with the price tag.

The food was great ; and authentically Thai. The fish and green curry beef were great tasting and uniquely Thai. But the BBQ squid was alright and a bit chewy. The lemongrass drink does not seem wholesome; a bit too light. Overall a good experience for the family.

There's lots of options in this shopping centre that it can be overwhelming to choose a place to eat. The menu here has lots of options and is well priced (much cheaper than the thai I would have back in Australia). Staff were friendly and the service was quick. Would recommend for solo travellers and equally for bigger groups.

So good I brought 18 colleagues the next night. Located in the Sunway Resort complex the inner decor is stylish, tasteful and very welcoming. Staff are patient as you try and decide what to order from the thoughtful offerings. There is a varied choice of quality dishes, for every taste. The food comes quickly and is excellently prepared. Best Thai... More

I had the minced chicken with hot basil. Quite spicy but very good! The overall bill was very inexpensive and they were nice to pack it for take away (to go).

The atmosphere is very warm and the personnel extremely nice and helpful. The place is particularly suitable for a dinner, specially if with a nice companion. The food quality is great and the prices reasonable for the the quality and environment offered.
