Both thought the other was on dinner? Busy folk, want healthy and no fuss dinner? Food arrived within 10 minutes; fresh vegetables lightly stir fried; excellent service.

Went with the family and had three dishes that were flavourful, delicious for all and cooked magnificently. The fried rice dish especially had the kids wanting more. For myself it was the pad Thai noodles which really hit the spot.

Food was okay but not that tasty. Atmosphere was nice and people were lovely. They needed more waiting staff though.

This place feels very authentic. Very nice staff, great food recomended for vegeterians as well as meat eaters. But remember, when they say "spicy" they mean it.

Both service and food could have been better. The two waitresses seemed overwhelmed, communication seemed hard, took a long time to get the food. I ordered Pad Thai with beef, got chicken... Less tasty than usual in other places. Same for my husband's dish.
