    Nice atmosphere overall in a small cozy place. Dishes were good, although not all plates from the menu were available. Service was good.

    Booked our table for 6 more than an hour before our arrival time, but when we got there, no table was set for us. The lady put some tables together and after we sat, decided to move us to a different set of tables. We ordered some fried spring rolls to share. These took a really long time to come out. As a matter of fact, we saw another table, who was sat after us, get their rolls first. When we asked about our rolls, the lady looked dumbfounded and said she would check. She came back with them immediately, but the rolls were only lukewarm, not piping hot like deep fried foods should be. Guess they've been sitting because as soon as we finished the rolls, our meals came out before the lady could clear our appetizer plates. The main meals didn't fair much better: 2 orders of beef noodles-- genrous portions but not very tasty. Meat and veg over crispy noodles--the meat and veg were ok but the noodles were TOO crispy, i.e. dry and difficult to eat. Definitely could use a lot more sauce. Fried fish with basil--it's a small, whole fish. The sauce was good but if you just eat the fish alone, it was quite bland. Grilled chicken with curry sauce--the chicken was tender, but had to ask for the curry sauce 3 times. Had almost finished my meal before the (cold) curry sauce arrived ! The only 2 items that we'd rate as pretty good were the tom yum kung soup and the shrimp pad thai. Guess we shouldn't have been too surprised by the mediocre food; when you dine out, you can see if the food is good by the expression on the customers' faces. If it's good, there are lots of enthusiastic smiles and "here, you've got to try this!" -type of looks. We didn't see that here.

    It’s the second time that we go. The employers are really friendly and the food is awesome. The only thing that could get better is the drinks. Definitely we will repeat!

    Really good food and affordable prices, but the service was really slow. They were short on staff. We waited a lot of time between dishes.
