When the restaurant was almost ready, Phillip flew to Thailand and interviewed 300 Thai chefs, after which he picked the best three.

The menu consists of main dishes based on Green Curry, Red Curry, Massaman Curry and my favorite, the Yellow Curry. There is a wide range of dessert too.

I was delighted to have a couple of fun guests over who were enthusiastic about the black and gold dress code.
