I really love Thai food and can easily say this is the best Thai food I've ever had. The food was prepared fast and the service was great. A little pricey but you get a lot of food. As a side note though, the neighborhood...More

I ordered the veggie chicken pad thai. I found it interesting. I wasn't a fan of the veggie meat but the pad thai itself was good and the dish was well presented. I added soy sauce and some chilli sauce and then it was lovely

Not only was the food delicious, but beautiful dinnerware and interior as well. Reasonably priced. I was surprised that a gratuity had been added to our table for four.

Can veggie food be yummy and super tasty? Yes. At this vegeterian/vegan restaurant the food is delicious and portions abundant. Try the BBQ veggie chicken :) Staff nice friendly and service quick. Highly recommended
