The food was delicious and the restaurant was cozy too. At least we get to taste Thai food in Launceston as Thai food has always been our favorite.

This place just has really nice food. Not a fancy restaurant by any means but the food makes it worth the visit. So when in Launceston this place is worth a visit AA
