The place to have your Thai cravings fix. My friends and I come at least once a month. Expect longer food waiting time during weekend. Staff try their very best to serve all customers.

Nothing else to add! Special highlight for the cashewnut chicken and the Pandan chicken! Don't judge the place on the external appearance it's very clean and ideal for a diner with friends!!! No need to make a reservation. Only Cash accepted. Closed on Monday.

We got a good range of dishes, kang kong with garlic, steamed fish with soya sauce, basil pork, some fried rice, and a few other things. Overall the food is too sweet. Would be cool if the chef cools it with the sugar.
