    Duck is one of my favourite meals and the Red Curry Fried Duck is great at Smile Buffalo. Also enjoyed some chicken skewers in satay sauce. Wonderful Thai cuisine. Something for everyone.

    Tried the Red Curry duck plate tonight. I am a duck connoisseur. It was very nice. They do terrific roti bread here. A great Thai restaurant in a scenic location by Black Rock beach.
