    My group of 4 chose the Chefs selection menu for $79 each. We received 3 entrees, 2 mains, a veggie dish, rice and a small portion of dessert. The entrees were all absolutely delightful. Extremely tasty, fresh and left us wanting more. I felt the amount of protein in the mains was not quite enough. One piece of barramundi to share between 4 people was only a mouthful each. And the slices of steak in the pad Thai were very few and far between. Overall though, the food was extremely high in quality and I am looking forward to another visit very soon. These chefs are very talented.

    This little lovely neighbourhood gem has become very popular, and therefore I think they’re struggling a little bit to keep up with the demand. The service is wonderful and when the food comes out it’s great but it just is taking a little bit of time to come out of the kitchen.

    We enjoyed the delicious fries and the silky prawn dumplings in tom yum bisque for starters. Pad see ew and drunken beef rounded out our selections and were served steaming with tender, juicy meats and crisp, tasty vegetables - so lovely. The service was very nice on a busy Friday night. We took away the tart for dessert - lush! Wishing this new restaurant every bit of luck for a bright future in our neighbourhood.

    Best Thai food I have eaten. An imaginative, and presumably (I am no expert) authentic menu. Everything we tried was delicious. The hard-working front-of-house was charming and thoughtful in explaining things, and kind in suggesting that perhaps we were ordering a lot of food, and suggested ordering a bit less.
