The wait was long (45 min), but in the end well worth it. We ordered a lot of food more than enough for 4 people. Everything ordered is amazing. The spiciness of the food is just right - spicy enough to burn, but not painful....More

You can easily pass it every day and never notice this Thai/Malaysian place but it would be your loss. They serve delicious authentic (I've been to Thailand twice) food and they're very nice to you. I'm literally addicted to Laut Mee Hoon Goreng!

The food here is over the top. The noodle dishes are spectacular. The half chicken great for the less adventurous. The staff is friendly and helpful to guide you through the menu. I cannot wait to go back here.
