    The only downfall was we arrived at 9:00 for the degustation and were too late for it. We ordered all the entrees instead and loved it though. Such a great restaurant :)

    Barramundi and pork belly main dishes were very good. Duck curry was okay but lacked distinction which we expected in authentic Thai food. Tuna entree dish was excellent.
