Got there on Saturday around 6pm. Didn't make a reservation and the line was out the door. Put down a party of two on the wait list (don't know if they take reservations, now) behind about 14-20 people ahead of us. The place was packed...More

The Thai Samosas were delicious and came beautifully presented with an orchid garnish. The duck was superb and the sweet basil chicken was quite good, though heavy on the bamboo. Our fried rice was a good balance of sweet and spicey. Highly recommend!

Visited the eatery with family and found the food to be appealing and appetising. We ordered the Crispy Pompano which is a whole deep fried Pompano fish with Thai spicy chilli sauce. You can ask for the spice level to be adjusted. The Sweet Basil...More

Great food. They are very busy. Offers only beer and wine. I especially liked the Peking Duck. Not a great place to have to wait. No bar.

Authentic Thai food in a little strip center. Fresh items. BYOB corkage fee of $8.00. Very friendly staff. Sometimes crowded but it's worth the wait. Great variety of items which they are willing to customize.

Had a great meal here with another couple. I ordered the chicken with peanut sauce, which was delicious, and my partner had garlic seafood, which she enjoyed. The other couple also enjoyed their food, though I don't remember exactly what they ordered. They also had...More
