Beautiful place. My favorite shrimps and fried rice. Very tasty. This place also offers Thai massages at the second half of the building. What a genius idea.

This is great for an anytime meal. food is always good and the service is great. I do think they need a better drinks menu if you are into cocktails, but other than that, its great. I've been with my wife and daughter and taken my parents there and its always been a hit. would definitely recommend.

Glass noodles was the best here.. The restaurant's ambience is quiet and calming especially from the din outside in the arcade and casino. The service is good, food great and wholesome. Definitely a go to place.

This remains one of my all time favourites. go there around once a month. Great food, served very efficiently. Portions are huge so we end up sharing our main meals. The coconut ice cream is divine

The food here is just not thai food but a strange south african interpretation of it. I did not see a single thai person in the restaurant or kitchen so its not authentic thats for sure. The peanut sauce for the chicken satay was very odd, tasted like peanuts with coconut milk in...wishy washy. My main was revolting it was... More
