I went to this restaurant because the green curry was looking so good on the pictures and also the review wasn't this bad. But unfortunately the curry was not as good and doesn't had all the ingredients as it should. I be definitely not back.

Ate in for the first time, after getting take away meals from here many times (which have always been good). Had pad sewu and vegi spring rolls. Mate had some beef stir fry. Was all excellent. Great service from the nice Thai staff, if any complaint it was that the food came too quickly and we didn't have time for... More

Went in on a public holiday and was pretty quiet. Cute and quaint inside, if not a little cramped. Looks like a funky in Chapel St, Melbourne inside. I sometimes hate trying new Thai because I enjoy it so much and don't like getting disappointed. I had Panang curry and also a vegetable dish with pork. Was actually blown away.... More

My partner and I visited here for a quick early evening meal and we both chose a chicken meal although they were different meals. Whatever meat ended up on my partners plate (probably duck) it definitely wasn't chicken. It was ok....but not good..... and the same could be said of my meal....... a plateful of barely ok. I asked one... More

The nasi goreng and the fried rice we ordered were too wet and mushy. The food was bland and unappealing. The pineapple juice was very nice.

Not much choice of restaurants available on Christmas Day but we booked here and were pleased we did. Inspite of being very busy, the staff were very efficient, friendly and obliging. The food and drinks came quite promptly and were very tasty. Tables were cleared as soon as people left and the place had a very nice atmosphere.

Took takeaway lunch. One of my order was incorrect and when I informed I was given a replacement the next day. Thumbs up for the prompt action. Food was tasty. I asked to be spiced up and it was really nice. Friendly staff and have lunchtime deals.

We came here for dinner midweek the service was very good and the food, a combination jungle curry and duck curry were excellent with plenty of spice. We had a bottle of merlot reasonably priced at $33.00 all up $70.00 for dinner a reasonable price we will be back and friends have also said the breakfast is also good value.

Thank Shane T
