    Portion sizes are small for the price but the quality of the food is good. The dining room has a good vibe but I was in one of the seats with no back support which was uncomfortable after a while.

    Love the food. Fusion style Asian. No need to keep telling your guest on arrival they only have 1.5 hours to sit. If you can serve properly in that time then so be it. Otherwise leave me in peace. By the way you rang prior and confirmed the booking and told me we had two hours. Seriously just stop doing that annoying thing to your customers. No need.

    The food was amazing as well as the service, I went as the reviews were so good and chubby cheeks did not disappoint. So much flavour in sach bit and the bauo buns are a must try. Adaptions were made for me being vegetarian nothing was too much trouble. Will be visiting again for sure.

    This restaurant was a great surprise, the setting is cosy, modern and very welcoming. The food is fresh Thai and each dish had its own delicate flavours . We tried the rice noodles and the lamb shank and 3 vert tasty entrees. Will recommend to friends

    Great little restaurant, superb food and really good service. Love the fish, the drunken noodles and the fact that so much is gluten free. Wine selection adequate - probably could expand this a little with more Australian wines but prices for drinks and food are very reasonable. This is our fourth visit and it just gets better and better. Only criticism is that the chairs are not very comfortable and we’d like to not have a finishing time imposed on us.

    Great fresh food unique twist on Asian fusion. Highly recommended. Just note 2 hour booking limit. Seating a little uncomfortable where no backing. Otherwise great local eatery.

    Fabulous food and a true neighbourhood gem! Very reasonably priced as well with generous portions. Definitely the best Asian fusion restaurant in Paddo!

    Would be better for a couple than for a larger group due to the noise levels. Good food. When the waitress spilled water, drenching one of my companions, the waitress didn't notice at first.

    Great atmosphere at this restaurant. When the food was good, it was superb but unfortunately some dishes were lack luster and could have been more flavorful

    Food was delicious but wait staff suggested too many dishes for our table and we ended up with a lot of wastage. We also didn’t check the itemized receipt but in hindsight the bill was very high and we should have.

    I was very curious to try it as I read many positive reviews. I wasn’t disappointed. Despite the place being packed on a Tuesday night the service was very friendly and effective. Loved the atmosphere. Only one minor thing bothered me. It was very loud and I found it hard to have a proper conversation but everything else, ????. But will definitely go back as the food is excellent and very reasonably priced.

    The food was sensational. Unfortunately, the service was not. We waited ages to be able to order and then once we had vinished the meal, waited again for ages before being able to catch the waiters eye to remove all the dishes. He then did not come back for over half and hour to ask about desert, which by that time all we wanted was the bill. Pity as it was very difficult to get the waiters attention.

    Really good food but served far too quickly. The staff were lovely but have obviously been trained to get people in and out as quickly as possible. We asked for an entree to be brought out first but all the dishes came together. This is a big minus in would would otherwise be a really good restaurant.
