We only stopped here because it was the meeting point for one of our tours. We were very delighted with some of the best Thai food we have had. The service was good and everything was reasonably priced.

I love the cashew chicken and the appetizer soft shell crab. Service was really good and the server was very professional when I was served. Food didn't take long to come out. I will definitely be back for more.
