We ducked in to get out of the cold and were pleasantly surprised with the good food! We each had something different and all of us enjoyed our meals. We all started with soup and each soup was good! I had an eggplant entree and ended it with Mango Sticky Rice! Uhm Uhm Good!

I judge Thai by: - Tom Yum xxx soup (where "xxx" is the meat: Gai is chicken, etc.) - Drunken noodles - Tom Ka xxx - And most importantly, is the sweet component under control. ALL of the East Coast Thai restaurants use far too much sugar.

We enjoyed this restaurant! We come from an area where Thai food is hard to find ! So it was a treat to get some great Thai food! The service was great. There were a couple of loud customers beside us, And the staff graciously apologized as soon as they left. This location is wonderful too ! Enjoyed our dinner

Beautiful view of the water and spicy Thai food. Can't go wrong with this place. My favorite is the Pad Thai and the Mai Thai drink. I like this branch better than the one in Dupont.

Nice environment upstairs, with a view over the see. We ordered panang curry chicken and seafood in paradise. We served quickly but both meals were barely warm, and prawns and scallops on the shellfish plate was dry, had no flavour and the sauce was very plain. This was also one of their specialities. The panang curry was also boring, especially... More

Pleasant setting in Old Town. Service was prompt and pleasant. Food was average. I had a daily special of Sriracha Noodles which was mild but tasty. Prices good.

The food was really bad, and the cashew chicken the worse I've ever had. This is the kind of food you would expect to get at Panda Express.

It is easy to find on the water. Look for parking or a parking lot. Order all the soups. The food is typical, but severed elegantly. I love to go off hours because they can become very busy. Also, mid day you can get a window seat.

Thank Rudi R
