A group of us went there for dinner, and pre-ordered the Thai banquet. Delicious! All the items were freshly and perfectly cooked; generous servings and friendly service.
Do try it!

Waited 1 hour just to get an entree. They were busy but one hour is a bit much. Luckily the mains didn’t take much longer after that. Food was good, just didn’t like the long wait.

Ordered a fresh rice paper rolls entree and Pork Red Curry as takeaways, 10 Oct 2017. I selected this restaurant based on online reviews.

The paper rolls were so-so, I thought they were tasteless, my partner rated them slightly better.

We both thought the Red Pork Curry was appalling. Far too sweet and the pork had the texture of cardboard. If we had have been dining in the restaurant we would have sent it back to the kitchen.

Rice was provided gratis with the curry. Both of us are moderate eaters, we don't require or expect large meals but the amount of rice included was hardly enough for one person.

Most disappointing. We would not go back.

I am a seasoned Thai fanatic but I freely admit that orderly the warm beef salad Thai Hot was a step too far which send me down the road looking for some milk to quench and unexpectedly piquant experience. That said, my Yum Nua Tok was delicious and the misjudgment was my fault for making a miscalculation that a provincial Thai restauraunt's Scoville scale might not match that of its metropolitan cousins. Full marks for authenticity. Perhaps some milk or cream on hand would be helpful as any kind of carbonated beverage is asking for further trouble. I dined with three others and even after a few Changis each the bill did not exeed $150 for the four of us. I would
