“My younger sibling kept insisting that we come here, singing and all, but I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. Even though I’ve never been to Thailand, I imagine that the interior and the staff give a similar vibe to a local Thai restaurant, and the taste is excellent too! ❣️”


“I’m quite familiar with Tom Yum Goong and Pad Thai, but I tried something new called Tam Thai for the first time, without having tried any side dishes before. Despite the strong spices, it had an addictive flavor. 😋”


“The Tom Yum Goong at this place leans more towards a sweet and tangy taste rather than a spicy and sour one, and the broth is rich. When I asked for extra basil, they gave me a separate plate of basil to add to the Tom Yum Goong. If you like basil, make sure to mention it. Also, make sure to try the Thai milk tea. It really gives you that authentic Thai feel, and they also offer takeout. I noticed that even Thai people come here to eat at the neighboring tables. Next time, I’m planning to try other dishes too. I’m curious about Som Tum (papaya salad) as well.”

At first, when the dishes came out, I wondered if I would be full after eating all of them.. but by the end, I was so full I almost left some..
