Reviewed 7 January 2017

Excellent rebuild of prior restaurant, by company with many years experience producing outstanding Thai/Burmese food on Niagara Falls Boulevard now in heart of Williamsville. Decor tastefully redone, a lot of noise reduction/sound absorption materials very successfully done making it easy to hold a conversation even when the place was full. Waiters/waitresses knew the menu, and informed us right away (seated on time for reservation) the kitchen was running slow and asked if we wished to stay, we were thankful we did. Sampler appetizer variety of flavors all well prepared. Beer and wine selection diverse but out of a few items tonight (takes time for the glitches in any new restaurant). Entrees were outstanding, noodles and chicken (great curry!) prepared to perfection moist, soft and sauces with depth. Desert mango with sticky black rice a definite keeper. Fish (signature dish) took its time swimming out of the kitchen but was well worth the wait and we were able to catch up on recent events with our good friends (this is not a pre play/movie spot for now, but a great dinner for friends/group that enjoys excellent food and company); fish was excellent and we will return to try all of the options in the future trips. Menu, ambience, staff and quality of food superb, just need to work on getting all of the timing together, and that will come with time; give them a couple of weeks if you are in a rush, or try them now if you are patient and like good food.

This location is brand new. Owners are those who also own Sun in Buffalo which boasts excellent reviews. We dined during the so called soft opening. No beer license as yet.
The server was among the best we have ever experienced. Support staff were constant with water and tea re-fills.

There is an extensive menu by country. Makings are very fresh. Unusual and well enjoyed desserts. We had Taro Ice Cream and Green Tea Ice Cream.

As noted, this location has been open for just a few days. An item for attention: Our food was not hot, (temp). Warm would be accurate. This describes the appetizer and the entrees. We had to eat a bit quicker than usual so as to ensure an edible temp.
