    First to Review

    This bar/restaurant feels like it's going through an identity crisis. It's trying to be posh with a lackluster/Thai street food menu.

    It has a funky decor and creative drinks menu but I'd pass on the food.

    Here's what I ordered -- all were small portion-sizes and averagely executed.

    Pad Thai
    Gang Keow Wan

    Scallops were pretty decent, well at least the two that came with the order.

    The decor is fantastic, but I wish they put the effort into the food instead. My Rubies & Diamonds cocktail was pretty good, but not very strong. My partner also ordered a cocktail that was tasty, but not amazing. Our food was just okay. I have definitely had better Thai food on Upper Street in that same price range, so I don't think we'll be going back. The portions are small, the food is lackluster, and the service was okay. I felt like the waitress didn't really want us to be there.

    On a really sour note, the Chicken Pad Thai had small shrimps thrown into it and no warning in the menu that it contained any sort of seafood. This is a HUGE no-no and they're lucky I'm not allergic. I have family members who would have gone into anaphylactic shock after one bite because of the shrimp in it. Not cool, XOXO.

    Came here for dinner and a catch up with a friend. The place is decorated more like a bar than a restaurant, and we were greeted with strange Middle Eastern style dance music which did not seem to fit with the atmosphere (or lack of). To add further to the confusion, there was also dim sum dishes on the menu?!? Aside from that the food was ok nothing special. We had between us, crab cakes and chicken satay skewers to start, followed by prawn pad Thai and chicken massaman curry with coconut rice. I will say that they were generous with the prawns but otherwise portions were on the small side. Service was efficient. We went there on the taste card deal otherwise I would say there are far better places in the myriad of choices on Upper St.

    Beautiful decor and cocktails! I haven't tried food yet, but really good for drinking.
