Although we prefer al fresco eating this place with its typical cheers bar and the most attentive barman in Florida, serves ups some wonderful Thai food. A combination of good food and well priced, with excellent service, this became our favourite eatery.

The food has decent flavor, the lunch portions are very small and it's a little pricy. Our club stopped going there since you don't get much value for what you spend. I mean really, how much do a few more noodles and vegetables cost?

We dine here frequently. Tonight we had the crispy ginger fish, and thai chicken fried rice. Delicious meal well presented and served promptly and hot. Always a go to restaurant.
