Coming back from the Market on Yates, we decided to pick up dinner here. Excellent Pad Thai and Pineapple Fried Rice. Large portions. There is a counter inside and there are tables outside. Recommended.

All kinds of parking around it, and shared parking with liquor store, regardless the area is great to walk in so even a few blocks walking will offer a new perspective of Victoria.

This is a great little restaurant. It's exactly the kind of "locally know favourite" that wise Trip Advisor travellers are looking for. It's very reasonably priced and consistently good.
