The staff was very professional and kind especially since my large party was 30 minutes late. We were seated at a large table in the bar area. I didn't realize this when requesting the table. Our server Vincent was a bartender he seemed pretty timid, but not the same service as a server. Forgot a couple things here and there ,but his kindness made a difference. That being said the ribs were dry. Food didn't wow us. Maybe we chose the wrong food selections? Will definitely try again during night service in a server section maybe there will be a difference. Wanted a non-alcoholic drink selected a tamarind option it was pretty tart and off/not fresh. Maybe it's not a popular option and that was the last of it. Grew up with Filipino neighbors and we were excited to visit the restaurant for some familiar foods we've had over the years. Will try again.

However I was disappointed that the shrimp in the pad Thai couldn’t be substituted for something else when the guest had a shellfish allergy. In addition another noodle dish was unavailable because they ran out. It is odd that they ran out on a Saturday night around 730p. Also the cocktails did not taste very good. Overall the staff was nice but wish some of these things were different.

I felt the food was overpriced for the taste / quality (although still decent), they were out of two things off the menu so we had to choose different things, and the service was pretty slow. Was expecting a better experience for the price

We had two kids but they don’t have a special menu. Everyone enjoyed there meals. I had the short ribs which were excellent. The frozen Mai Tai was very strong and I loved it. We will definitely be back.

We shared three dishes , of which one was a red curry dish and another chicken satay in peanut sauce. The latter was so good we ordered a second helping. Service was attentive. The restaurant was attractively decorated. We'd go back. I loved the location. Parking is an issue, though.

One entree was brought to the table and the next one didn’t arrive for about 25 minutes. 2 more were brought out 10 minutes after that. 20 more minutes passed and we asked about the final entree only to find out that our server never put it in? We waited another 30 min until it came. They refunded us *some* after I asked but overall it was a pretty disappointing experience. The food is very good but I hope they figure out the service!

The pork belly appetizer, served with banana ketchup was excellent. The meatballs were tasty with just the right amount of kick. The ribs, definitely more savory than those you might be used to. These were not smothered in a sweet, American BBQ sauce. Everything is served with rice. But an appetizer and a side veggie would definitely fill you up.

Manager refused to even ask the kitchen if possible— claimed they were too busy yet half the restaurant was empty. Never in all the low end restaurants to high end Michelin started that I have eaten at, have I had a Manager refuse to even try and accommodate. The waitress was super nice and going to try but got blocked by the manager. They definitely don’t deserve Nib Gourmand status.

When we mentioned something to the manager he handled our complaint very well - he apologized and bought us a drink and made a bad situation much better.

Waiter when asked if certain foods contained “soy sauce” answered “I don’t know” rather than saying “ I will find out “. Later he returned and said “Everything has soy and you’re not allowed to make any substitutions” for whatever sauce they use. The meatballs were so salty we could not eat them. The fried rice had batches of extreme “hot spice”. We were very disappointed!

It wasn’t busy, even during peak brunch hours and there seemed to be an abundance of staff that could have attended to the table. Ultimately it was the host that noticed and approached the table - thank you! The drinks, when they came, were great! I was looking forward to the panang curry but it was quite honestly (hands down) the worst curry I’ve ever had. I was quite looking forward to this meal given the Michelin status, yet it disappointed in every regard.

The selection of menu items was poor and there were barely any options for vegetarians nor could items on the menu be adapted to suit vegetarians. Some dishes were unavailable. They don't serve coffee but only tea. Our salad came with hair in it. The food we were able to order did taste nice. The hostess was also the server. Service was terrible because food arrived one by one instead of together (example, curry came first and rice came a few minutes later). There were no serving utensils provided. I did share the salad issue with the manager who took it off the bill. Not a child friendly restaurant.

On the waterfront and with an indoor/outdoor dining experience by opening big windows. Inside looked great too. However, the food was not what I expected and not up to my expectations for a Michelin guide restaurant, and for something this pricey. 2 entrees and an appetizer came out to $91. The duck drunken noodles weren’t even spicy and the duck was extremely dry. Despite its beautiful aesthetic, the food was abysmal and overpriced. If you are looking for more authentic Thai food look elsewhere.

Its a system, with runners and waiters, and my food came to me 10 minutes after my wife's, and only after I asked about it. The waiter never came by to check on us, we had to ask for hot sauce, more water, and the check. They have customers by the scruff here, and the elevated prices reflect that.

Tables were far enough apart that conversation was pleasant, unlike so many restaurants these days. The food was very good and pleasantly presented. We enjoyed it.
