While this restaurant is under new management, the new management are relatives of the old management. AND ... they have kept the recipes. I had an outstanding chicken curry, while my partner had a very good fish dish. They are still learning how to be in charge, but the new management should continue to keep this an excellent venue.

She runs the kitchen, he runs front of house. This restaurant is about 20 years old, and it does look it (don't judge a book by its cover).... More

Five of us went to dinner here for a family get together. The service was prompt and courteous, the owner came to the table and explained the dishes and double checked that we were all getting something we would enjoy, the young waitress had a beaming smile and a nice attitude. The food didn't disappoint, not the greatest of all... More

Thai classic is one of those places kept treasured as a locals' secret. The food is second to none: thai lemon prawns, delicately cured in garlic, chilli and lemon; subtly spiced chicken in pandang leaves; whole trout seared in "three thai flavours"; ginger pork salad with chilli, onion and peanut. As simple as it is, the coconut rice is the... More
