The savory dishes were very good. The curry fish head was in a thick, tasty gravy, and the beef rendang was tender and flavorful. The prawn paste chicken was exceptional; crispy, flavorful and yet not too oily. :-) The Thai Sticky Rice dessert was a letdown as there was not enough sweet coconut milk syrup soaked into the rice, which was a bit tasteless, and the mango was not the correct variety (supposed to be Thai Honey Mango), but was an overripe mango of another type that turned out too sweet without the necessary tinge of sour. Lastly the topping is supposed to be toasted mung beans, and not toasted sesame seeds. Ambiance was good, with mainly families having dinner that Friday evening. Service was prompt and unobtrusive. Was a great place for us to have a gathering of friends. :-)
