Restaurants looks nice, well pointed, nice white tablecloths. Attentive waitresses. Food was very nice tom yum soup very tasty but mild for me, good chicken satay and veg spring rolls. Wassermann beef curry was nice but a little sweet - not sure what the spice was - cinnamon? Chicken pad thai nice, stir fry veg with tofu nice as well. Thai salad nice. Satay sauce was nice but a little bland - needed a little spice. Overall the food was very nice but perhaps toned down for the clientele.

This is our local Thai - but I'd happily travel for it. Fast service by extremely polite staff. Menu has plenty of variety with delicate and delightful flavours . The spicy options are there too if you want them. Decor is simply - and that's fine, it stands on all its other strengths. I'll keep going back.

We have lived in this area for a long time and have never been here. It was a very pleasurable experience. The food and service was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We will definitely come back again in the future.

Delicious food, served promptly. Servings are generous! This is a regular for us! Loved the crispy pork belly in a stir fry, rather than the usual beef or chicken. It tasted delicious and remained crispy.

Always a delightful meal. We especially like the Barramundi and bring US visitors there for the experience whenever they are in town. They say it is the best they have eaten anywhere !!
