Out of all the noodle bases, tom yum would be the most tasty, or appreciable. Other sweet flavours dun sit well with me However, the portion size is quite small, and personally did not feel like value for money (each bowl $1.5) The big sharing platter was quite big, but still did not feel like value for money as it's just fried fritters (for $20) Would probably be back to try out more items in the menu, as it has a nice seating in the mall to catch up with friends

Basil leaf chicken rice set $13 ++ little overpriced and little salty, basil leaves is so little you can count , if they improve with some long bean , cucumber and a bigger sunny egg ( very small size I think is the lower smaller grade egg ) , 3 mini spring roll $4 ++ Taste ok hot tea $.3 50 ++ size is little small can improve size bigger taste is Thai and nice for less sweet 👍🏻 , overall little overpriced but still can eat .. total bill $24.33 for 1 pax simple set meal . Hope my next visit can see some improvement . 😀 only restaurant close at 9pm in malls

I have been here for more than 5 times and the rice noodles never disappoints. I like the concept of having $1.50 per bowl as they are small and can finish with 2 mouthfuls. This allows me to try other flavour too! The dish which i recommend is the beef rice noodle with spicy and sour sauce. The sweetness of the red ruby is just nice and not too sweet while the rubies are nice to chew on with a soft layer of skin and a crunchy core. The service is one of the best I have ever seen. I accidentally drop my chopsticks on the ground which I was not using and within 30 seconds, one of the staff walked over with a pair of chopsticks for me. Great service!

Ordered varieties from the menu. The tom yum one tasted good while the original one taste so so. Deep fried kang kong is full of flour and cannot taste the kangkong. Maybe because it too deep fried? The deep fried chicken skin is good and because no mayonnaise so we settled for thai chili sauce. But it still taste alright. Good for a short meal.

Think twice before you go. Boat noodles 7$ with no meat or meat ball only a few mince meet. Grilled beef ball 2 sticks for 5.99$ (1 stick got 3 meatballs = 1 $ per ball). Ridiculous price. Pathetic fried rice 10.99$ Rate 2 stars 1 star is for Authentic taste another star is for paper food container.

First time patronising this restaurant. Order can be done via online menu. It can be quite confusing when ordering for the first time but the friendly staff are more than happy to assist. Food was flavourful but price is a bit on a high side for me. After having the Bangkok rice, I am not full. Maybe the portion is small for me therefore not value for money. Ambience was nice but I prefer a better seating tables and chairs while maintaining the old street charm. Will be coming back to try out more dishes in the future.Keep a lookout for future reviews.

I rarely leave reviews but decided to write one to caution potential customers. Tried the boat noodles, Pad Thai and mango sticky rice. The boat noodles were average and very small portion. The $1.99 per boat price seemed like a diversion as the rest of the menu were much more expensive than the norm. The Pad Thai portion was also much smaller than other Thai restaurants and taste was nothing special too. As for mango sticky rice, they don't use Thai mangos but instead the typical supermarket mango. As a result, it was far from the right taste. Lastly, I ordered lemongrass drink with less sugar and it tasted really diluted and the cup was full of ice. All in all, will not come back again for the expensive and unsatisfactory experience.

We ordered the Tom yam beef and sweet kway chap chicken rice noodles and they were both nice. As we don't eat a lot and it was after our main meal the portions were just nice for us to try the different boat noodles. I got a Thai coconut which was rather "old" so the flesh was a tad hard. My friend ordered the lemon grass hot drink and it was nice. Despite the bad reviews given by the rest we both were quite happy with the service and also the food. Guess we will be back again to try other types of boat noodles!

1.50 per bowl of boat noodles sounds like a good deal but the bowl itself is actually smaller than the ones in Thailand as well. Probably have to eat 5-6 bowls for a full meal? Tried the original chicken and the creamy one The original one is not too bad once you add some chilli flakes. But the creamy one is rather too sweet, tastes a little like Dan Dan Mian but not in a nice way. Also had the fried kangkong that just tasted like deep fried flour. Has to dip a lot of the sauce for it to have some taste. The basil chicken rice was also lacking in depth of flavour. Overall, really a very average place with an above average price tag.
