We went here for dinner, it was a first visit for me but not for my companions. The food was excellent: I had a Thai curry with chicken. Service was prompt and pleasant. Although the restaurant was busy, it was not noisy.

Excellent little eatery in summer town and well worth a visit. Nice menu- although a little short on choice. Ribs and fish very good, well cooked and served promptly.
