Had better expectation for this place. The ambience is great but the main thing is the food which was very sub standard

Highly recommended. We heard quite a lot about this restaurant and wanted to visit but never had the opportunity. Very glad we finally made the effort and will be back again. Service very good and food quality is excellent. Wonderful and relaxing atmosphere.

When you are in the area stop by for lunch! Went there twice and was not disappointed, though there are no Thai's working there the food was very good, fresh and the place's atmosphere is excellent! Great flavors and the service is outstanding.
