A great place with tasty food and excellent personnel. The food is always tasty and delicious. Iana, the waitress, was very friendly, escorted to a nice cozy table and gave her advise on dishes. Followed her advice and was rewarded with perfectly cooked lunch. Very recommend this place. Must to visit.

Had dinner with some friends. We tried their dimsum, Seafood Pad chai, Pad Thai Noodles and the sticky rice. Overall the food is awesome but their Pad Thai is a standout!

Normally a home for good Asian in the capital, menu and service are now looking tired. May return later in the year to see if has improved. Was normally very reliable for a tasty meal out.

Nice decorated restaurant and friendly staff. But the service was very slow and not organized. Two same dishes did not look the same one pad thai had nuts the other not. Taste and presentation average. The experience was average for average street restaurant, but not worth the price they sell it for.

Great atmosphere and a great happy hour! The ladies nights on Saturday and Sunday are unreal, with free cocktails. The food is amazing, with the Crispy Skin Duck being the standout. The service is great and the location is very central.
