If you like a traditional (very hard) Thai massage then this is the place to go. Hardest, yet best massage we've had. Ploy and Jam are little ladies with powerful strength that will leave you feeling sore and broken after they walk on you and...More

One hour of great massage! Strong hands (and knees or elbows as per traditional Thai) and got the knots out and soothing strokes to make you dozy and blissed our! Hot towels to wipe away the oils was a nice touch at the end. Want...More

My sister booked us in here as it was not far from where we were staying at the QT on Russell St. Staff were friendly and welcoming. My massage was great - she sure got my tight spots! Price was really reasonable too.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
