Decided to give this Thai place a try even it's the furthest from our hotel. It's really really good! I especially loved their chicken satay (the peanut sauce is so delicious!) and green curry.

A small (seating for about 25) well established Thai Restaurant. Delicious food and well served by pleasant staff. The Sweet Basil Duck is awesome. Dinner reservations are necessary. Highly recommended.

Pad Thai is not spicy really. Spice can be adjusted and there are different types of curries.
