Excellent Thai food! Dishes are large compared to other Asian restaurants so don't get put off by the price. Amazing menu, delicious authentic taste. Lots of varied seafood with chili, and our duck with oyster sauce was superb!

The food is good and quite authentic. Prices are a bit high. Service is friendly. We went again yesterday for dinner and so far all dishes have been good.

Not very impressed. Food was very bland, no lemongrass in the Tom Kha Gai so lacked the yummy flavour all others have. Red curry was quite different from traditional thai red curries from colour right through to flavour. And to top it off I was...$1 short of the price needed for delivery so I added a drink which never arrived even though I paid for it. Delivery guy also looked annoyed and made a point of saying it was a bit late cos he had to walk! Firstly, not my fault he had to walk, secondly I didn't know he would have to walk. Thirdly, it wasn't even late so felt like he only said that to make me feel guilty! Wouldn't go there again.More
