Some dishes are good and some are not to my taste. It is not authentic Thai food but more fusion cuisine to suit the Durban palate (maybe).There is a lot of sugar added into the dishes. Flavours really not balanced and I don't get the...More

It's hard to characterize this restaurant, given that it's in Durban. After a steady diet of very good Indian food, we thought we'd try something different. Let me first say that I've had some really good Thai food in the US, so my bar is...More
