Delicious food, lovely service and wonderful extra's..including a complimentary entree and a complimentary tray of delicious desserts as they noted we were also celebrating a friend's birthday. Will most definitely return. In fact Iam taking a friend back next week as I cannot wait to taste more options from the menu.

This place seems to have changed hands or format? Still, we found the service friendly and the food excellent, if a tad spicy. We had a nice dish from the specials board and a traditional green curry. A nice casual meal and good value too. YMMV

We were taken to dinner here by our friends. It was on a Wednesday so was nice and quiet. Waitress very friendly and efficient. For 4 of us we ordered 4 dishes and a rice. Very generous servings and sooooo tasty. Such a wonderful time was had by all. Would love to return when next in the area. Thankyou.

We had take away yellow chicken curry and River Kwai Duck. Both were tasty and the serves were generous. Also it's close to the botteshop in Cooleman Court so easy to whip in there at the same time.

We had been getting takeaway from here for a year or so, having switched from the nearby Thai House. Always great, especially the Pad Thai and Mussaman Beef, until ... Two weeks ago the curry puffs were tasteless and over-done, the Mussaman was tough and full of carrots (!) and the normally tasty Pad Thai was just awful. Normally, leftovers... More

We've noticed a downturn in the taste and quality of late. Not sure if another change in ownership? Eat in better than takeaway.

Met up with a group of freinds that had just returned from Thailand who now live there. We ordered paad thai along with other house specials including the soft shell crab and our personal favorite mussamun beef curry. We were all very impressed with the quality and quantity of the food. We will be back before they return to Thailand

The food was passable, very typical Thai food in the suburbia. Went on a Saturday night when it was quite busy making the little shop a bit cramped. Service was brisk and friendly and parking was a breze.
