We went here for an evening birthday celebration. Lovely flavours and good service. The interior is slightly drab but not as important as the good quality of the food. We had squid, fish, duck and a couple of curries. All great taste.

We visited on a very quiet Monday evening. The service was friendly and quick. We had chicken green curry and a dish with stir fried prawns. Both tasted well, spicy to our liking. The portions were generous.
