Very good Thai food in a cozy Vermont setting. Service is fast, which is excellent when eating with children. The 8-hour duck was delicious.

Really good Thai food, a nice surprise in Manchester where every other time we try Asian food I leave a bit disappointed. This was very good. I had a Thai curry chicken that was very tasty and I tried the pad Thai which was also delicious. Everyone left happy including kids who had steak teriyaki and salmon.

We stopped in for lunch after shopping all morning. Kids split a shrimp pad Thai and I got a delicious yellow curry. Professional staff and reasonable prices.

This was the second tome we ate here in the span of a month. The first time was so good that it was a natural choice when we came back up for a few days earlier this month. First of all, the staff couldn't be nicer nor the service more pleasant and efficient! The specialty cocktails are wonderful and their... More

Appetizers, and more appetizers. Some repeat orders. 3 people, 200 bucks including 2 bottles of wine. 2 hours plus. GREAT server named " Punni". We would have returned to eat here a second night but left Manchester a day early due to weather warnings. We will go back.... Definitely.

Stopped by accident. Will return often. Great service. Great variety. Limited but good wine list. Sit and order appetizer after appetizer. Drink wine. A relaxed and memorable evening. As for staff... Ask for Ponney to serve you. Listen to her menu suggestions. Enjoy.

Chose this restaurant because my husband is a vegetarian then I realized since he became one, I, by default have also nixed my meat consumption. Places like this make it so easy to get delicious food that are vegetarian conscience.

The restaurant is lovely, and the service excellent. The dumplings are superb, and the Pad Thai is very good. The vegetables in the dish with sweet and sour sauce were either over-cooked or old. There was too much celery, and even that lacked the crispness one looks for in a stir fry. The tofu in all dishes was very good.

Thank Cheryl H
