A. The Basil Crispy Onion Sea Bass (pictured, front) and Red Sauce Crispy Onion Sea Bass (both NT$258) are unique items not often found elsewhere. The latter, topped with lots of fresh onions, features a traditional Thai sour-spicy flavor, while the former is covered with a finely-diced mix of green peppers and parsley for a very tangy, lemony flavor.
B. The Combination Dish (NT$258) features Moon Shrimp Cakes, Deep-Fried Sweet-and-Sour Chicken Wings and Thai Spring Rolls, which can be ordered individually. The sliced Tender Roasted Pork Cheek (NT$198) has a pleasantly chewy texture.
C. Deep colors and gold accents give this cozy eatery an upscale vibe.
