The owner opened the restaurant to mainly cater for the tastes of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and other far eastern countries, Hence the menu of Thai dishes but with very little or no chillies. They will prepare with spice if required, just ask. We visited a couple of times and were impressed with the speed and efficiency of service, cleanliness and... More

Ate here due to a heavy downpour. Very average, should have picked the pizza cafe next door. If you want poor quality food at n average price it's all good For a few dollars more you can go to the family 500 mts away and have a sensational meal. But book if you want to dine after 7 pm

Been there, and first they didn't recognized us. We ordered 2 currys with steamed rice. The curry was served on a plate, not in a bowl, like expected for a curry. It was absolutely not liquid. Size was so small, both of us went out, still hungry. Further they gave me a green curry, but I ordered a red curry... More

Nothing original or fancy on the main course menu but everything is fresh. The meals are tasty, and not too spicy (the sweet and sour is very well balanced in terms of ingredients)The staff is very friendly and nice. All the meals are affordable I recommend this place !

We loved the food, ordered Pad Thai and stirred fried noodles. Really tasty and lovely service from smiling waitresses. But don't order the Mojito, tasted like caipiriña.
