It was very difficult to communicate with the staff as they don't speak English at all although they decided to put a business in an English speaking country. Food is not so wow.

I have had a lot of Thai food, and this restaurant is by far the best ever. Sea bass with spicy lemon sauce was our favorite.

Although the restaurant is small and looks a bit dingy, I was overwhelmed by the food here. The flavors are truly amazing and I left completely satisfied. This is our go-to Thai restaurant. We've tried other area Thai restaurants and none can compare.
