We also got the red curry and yellow curry....both were really good! The chef's special yellow curry had banana in it. Not something we've had before, but it is a delicious combination! Portions are on the... More

We booked as a group of 12 to have a Toastmasters meeting on a Sunday. For $25 per person we had a fantastic feast that just kept coming. Delicious range of food and plenty of it. Elegantly served.

The statues and art create a mystique all their own the moment you walk in off the street. Then there's the food. Whether you thrive on milder fare or want to go for the gusto of full... More
