The interesting thing here is this... The setting is very dull, the restaurant itself is not the best laid out and seems cheap, the food however was really great. We had great food and services well.

I have never been to an authentic Thai restaurant before, and we visited with friends. After reading so much good reviews I had high expectations but was very let down. The sushi was very good but the rest of the food was not great. I...More

I was very excited to go to Padbok for some Thai cuisine (as I longed for the dishes we ate in Koh Samui on our honeymoon) but cannot help but feel rather disappointed. The restaurant had a canteen-like atmosphere and could definitely do with a...More

If you are looking for Thai dishes that are the real deal, this is the place. No fusion dishes in sight, and they even sell imported Singha beer. Phad thai is really good, as well as the appetizers (spring rolls,dumplings). For dessert try the fried...More

Great place to go and reminisce about that time you went to Thailand. The food was delicious and tasted exactly as it did in Thailand. They have very spicy options too, if that's your kind of thing. Their prices are probably the best in town,...More

Not the best Thai restaurants I've tried. But the service quality was so great. Our waiter was so friendly and always check if we're satisfied. The food was nice especially the fried rice but the chicken in Pad Thai was slightly overcook.
