There are many restaurants sprouting around UP Village but we do go to our regular lunch spots as these are quite reliable in terms of the food, service and prices. One building along Malingap Street (right in the middle of the street) hosts several restaurants, many of which we have already eaten at. These include Parilla, Angus Beef, and Ally's All Day Breakfast. We were curious about the Thai restaurant beside Parilla and decided to finally eat there a couple of weeks ago.

The restaurant had clean, well lighted interiors but it was also quite simple compared to other Thai-themed restaurants we have eaten at in the past. Those had distinctly Thai decors and atmosphere. The food was okay and to be fair, we ordered some 'safe' items on the menu including fresh spring rolls and chicken pandan. I couldn't say if these were better than the same items I had in other Thai restaurants and in Thailand during my past travels. I would say they were average at best. Perhaps we should order the Tom Yum or the Chicken Basil in the future to see how authentic their food tastes. Price-wise, we thought that Happy Thai was okay on the pocket.
