This is a horrible restaurant - food was very very bad. Shrimps smelled and had very strange aftertaste. My friend got a rotten (!!!!!!) tomato in her order. We complained - but no-one wanna do anything. Horrible management, ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMENDED!!

Food was good and there was lots of it. It was also pretty cheap. The location was near busy street, but the restaurant was very quiet. Staff was nice and friendly.

We found this restaurant on our last day and were a bit upset because it was one of the best we had been to. The pad thai is fabulous and so were the other meals.

Intersting to see the cashew factory - fro the raw product to the various finished product. The staff were friendly and inform you all about the product. You could taste and also purchase all of the product

Had a quick lunch here - decent enough Thai food, but nothing special. The papaya salad was nice, as was the Penang Curry. The fried crab was average - probably not the freshest catch.
