Spent Sunday afternoon with some friends (8) and had a great time. The food was superb. Everybody said their meal was great and had no complaints. Service is OK, but needs a little refinement. The 'Pasoom' desert is a must. Not the cheapest restaurant, but well worth it.

Arrived on a friday evening without a reservation. Service was excellent and food perfect. Good friendly atmosphere and manager/ owner checked on us numerous times. Have eaten here numerous times and always very good. Highly recommended.

A great variety of traditional meals and very tasty. Kids appreciated the toys. A bit pricey though.

Been there before but this visit was very disappointing. The service was sloppy and the waiters were untidy. The food seemed to have been cooked by a very untrained chef . Not really Thai food. Will not go back again.

All 4 of us had a great Thai lunch Can recommend the fresh steamed fish. Honey glazed chicken also very good. Duck dishes a little dry.

Great venue and good food. In Durban North, Durban. Ample parking available. Great menu and wine list. Booking essential. Management hands on and staff very professional.

I ate at this restaurant quite a while ago and can really say I haven't had better Thai food anywhere, was as authentic as food I ate in Thailand a couple of years ago if not better.

Chose this restuarant for Thai food and more particular for Honey Glazed duck. Having been spoilt at Wang Thai in Sommerset West we live in Durban and wanted to find an equavalent experience in and around Durban. Unfortunately besides the service being awesome the duck was overcooked. My wife had the Honey Glazed Duck and I had the Red Curry... More
