This is the only restaurant I make sure to visit at least once every couple weeks... the food is absolutely incredible (best Thai in all of Cairns hands down)... I recommend the curry puffs, beetle leaf and beef masaman. Everything on the menu is full of flavour, the ingredients are extremely fresh and high quality, and the food is consistent every time.

Sakare the owner is absolutely amazing, she cares so much for the food and makes us feel like family every visit.

I also recommend ordering a cocktail, they are divine! The Tom yum soup cocktail is really unique and tasty, I recommend trying it for something different to pair with your meal.

I have taken so many people to this restaurant and everyone falls in love with it. Highly recommend this amazing place!!

We eat Thai. Around the world , or Chinese Style Thai, but the prices here were outrageous, the ambiance is good ! But if your happy to cough up for Ambiance then this could suit you , The Thai place 50 meters away was two thirds of the price and sell chicken other than breast . Mass a man curry was sickly sweet , the pork hock deep fried was greasy and the Phad Thai noodles undercooked , the meals were more reminiscent of French nouveau cuisine, Service good but food just terrible and over priced ,

Great food with absolute shocking service. Just ignored us as they walked past us to other tables and the place was only 30% full

Passing through Cairns, we walked into this lovely restaurant without a reservation on a Saturday night when fully booked, however we were squeezed in for a early meal. We had the satay chicken skewers which were tender and tasty, then coconut rice with red curry duck which was absolutely delicious!! The restaurant is upstairs away from the noisy foot traffic with a beautiful view of the sunset over the ocean. Great service, amazing food and a wonderful location. Have made a reservation for tomorrow night. A definite 5 stars!!!
