Everything we had was made fresh even the entrees which is unusual for Thai restaurants I have visited. Atmosphere and service were excellent. Highly recommend both hand made local entrees and mains.

Helpful staff - most other places to eat in Bathurst had closed the night before the big race weekend. Tasty stir fries. Interesting and comfortable decor.

Always so consistent, this resturant is family owned and operated. The food is always nice and the atmosphere is great.
