Great service and well priced tasty food. Very friendly and nothing was a problem. We were staying at the Stamford and could have our meal charged back to our room if needed which was nice

Have to say this is one of the tastiest Thai restaurants that I've eaten in. The prawn and crab cakes were simply delicious. The fish green curry and the chicken yellow curry could not be faulted. The meat in both dishes was tender and there was plenty of both as opposed to curries that are predominantly vegetable despite them not being vegetarian dishes. The staff were polite and attentive. The wine was lovely and reasonably priced. One catch though. If you are staying at the Stamford and choose to put your meal tab on your hotel tab, you will be charged and additional 5%. Mind you I was happy to pay that as a tip regardless. Well worth the visit.

Ordered a small clay pot tom yum goong (3 prawns with mushrooms) and a portion of jasmine rice to satisfy my cravings for some hot Asian soup. $10.50 for the soup and $3 for the rice and additional $1 for for freshly cut chilli. Spiciness was definitely right on for an Asian but the soup is the thicker (with coconut milk) version. Would have prefer the clear version.

This restaurant is rarely quite. The staff are super friendly and attentive. The food is traditional Thai with some added modern dishes. The pad kapao is my favourite which is minced chicken with chili and basil.

The restaurant is very spacious and the kitchen is open so you can see all of the action. The atmosphere is relaxing and the perfect antidote to a long week in work.

I enjoyed my meal and will come back.
