Stopped for lunch. Service was very friendly and had to wait just the right amount of time between drinks, starters and mains. Food was excellent too so no hesitation in recommending the establishment.

We stopped here for dinner one evening and were rather disappointed in the flavor of the food. Despite requesting my entree to be prepared medium hot there was very little spice and very little flavor in general. There is a large menu and service was good. If you like spicy Thai food I would recommend trying a different restaurant.

Hi Madeline E Thank you for your review. Unfortunately tastes are subjective, so one person's "medium hot" is another one's "hot". We have a lot of people through the restaurant and try to please everyone. However sometimes we miss out, like we apparently have with you. You mention that it was only the entrée, so we assume the rest was... More

This was a great place with fantastic views over the water. The meals were all served with a choice of mild, hot or very hot. All 3 of us chose the hot and hot it was, but delicious! The service was super too and all for a very acceptable price.

Would recommend this restaurant for good Thai food at a reasonable price and good service. It filled up pretty quickly which was a good sign so get in early for a seat.

We went the first time and got a nice table at the window with views to the sea. The food was better than we expected. The service in the beginning a little slow. All in all we didn't regret our choice

Nice atmosphere and overlooking the bay. We had main size portions of tom yam soup which came with rice. Delicious though a tad overpriced for what it was. Service was polite and attentive.
