Great Thai food. The Panang Curry was delicious. We stopped on a whim and were very satisfied. We normally check trip advisor first but this time we checked after and all the reviews were good. Strongly recommend this place.

Enjoyed the food which was well presented and tasty. I recommend the tamarind fish, not too highly spiced and served with a mix of vegetables. Well worth a visit.

Side street, up a block from beach, but food was downtown good; the Tom krauw coconut soup especially so.

I loved the atmosphere of this restaurant. The food was really good and came out hit and fresh. Even the restroom was decorated attractively and was very clean.

Kind of sums up the entire experience. I’ve had far better Thai food elsewhere, although the Tum Yum soup was very good. We had two duck dishes. The Volcano duck was fairly lean and done well. Vegetables served with the dish were stone cold. Didn’t...More
