Great tasting food. Each member of our party loved the flavour and the size of their meal. Excellent table service for a busy little restaurant. Will be going again next time we visit Launceston.

The main dish is not really significant, I was so disappointed with Thai milk tea, it was tasteless ! I think it's quite pricey comparing to other Thai restaurants, meal portion is quite small. However staff is very attentive and nice
