I love coming here every week for a delicious Thai lunch. Great prices and always good. My favourites are the curries, especially Green and Penang. My daughter likes the Pad Thai but without the omelete. We also come here often for dinner and take aways....Have tried others in town but this is the only place with traditional Thailand decor, and it really does have the best ambience & staff.More

We visited for dinner as the restaurant had been recommended by locals. I had Cashews and Scallops and the scallops melted in my mouth and there were plenty of them. My husband had pork sizzler and he said that it was delicious and there was...a lot of pork. Nice decor and staff were greatMore

I popped into this restaurant for a quick bite before I saw a movie. I was on holiday but only had a half hour before movie started and I mentioned that when I got there. Service was fast and the ladies had beautiful traditional attire...and were very attentive. The flavours were lovely and danced on my tongue, especially the mussels. I will come back when I have more time as I would like to explore this menu, and give it the time it really deserves. It was a treat.More

When there are large family tables of Thai nationals enjoying their meal you pretty well KNOW it's authentic good food. The atmosphere was lively and colourful, like Thailand. The cocktail was divine! Our meal for 2 adults and a 10y old really was fantastic. Absolutely...top taste and filling! Said 10y old loved her sticky rice. and my Mango rice dessert was just so yum.More

The food here was excellent as was the service. The whole snapper with sweet chilli was delicious and was a very good size. We also enjoyed the tom yum soup and chicken satay which had a delicious peanut sauce. Probably the only slight disappointment was...the pad thai, which needed a bit more flavor and was a bit smaller than what we would normally get at other thai restaurants. Would really recommend this if you are wanting an authentic thai meal.More
