Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Steamed dim sims were the best I’ve ever had! Chicken Panag was taste but on the watery side. The pad Thai was woeful , more like a soup with steamed rice noodles on top, not what you will see at any other restaurant or what...I cooked in a Thai cooking school in Thailand. Would I come back, yes I would but not for pad Thai ..More

I had such high hopes, read the reviews, close to home. The attempt at a Thai Green curry was woeful. One or two carrots and a small amount of something green swimming out of its depth in a watery gravy. If the ingredients cost more...than $2:00 I would be shocked. The tofu was undercooked and a solid cube of horror. The rice was fine and the green bean opening act was promising. The main event was an expensive flop. Sorry, I really wanted this place to rock. I do not understand some of the other reviews. Maybe the cook had a night off and the dishwasher stepped in?More

We regularly dine at this restaurant for many reasons. We live in the town so support the locals, the food is fresh and delicious, the service fantastic and the whole atmosphere is beyond reproach. I cannot understand a "terrible" review when I have never heard...a bad word about this place. In fact we have friends who travel to regularly attend this restaurant.More

We are visiting friends from down south and they suggested we try their local Thai restaurant. We were seated outside on a very pleasant night and it was great. Whilst the kids wandered off to check out the walking paths across the road and we...sat back chatted, drank some wine and chilled. The food was very good. I particularly enjoyed the chicken with cashews and the veggie curry. I highly recommend. And the staff are delightful.More
