What a gem of a place. Lovely staff, absolutely delicious food at a great price and a wonderful ambience. This is the best Thai food I have had outside of Thailand. What more could you ask for!

I have been there many times. Food is great but staff are rude and it's a pain to book this place. Only find out that there is a better Thai/pub restaurant around the corner which I am going every week without having any booking problem...More

No I don't think so. This is a very busy little cafe/restaurant. The ambience is basic but pleasing and the food exceptional. I would hesitate to want to take a small baby or child there as room is at a premium. Not saying... More

Quit the diet for one night and enjoy one of the best Thai restaurants around! Seriously though, if you speak to the owner Sasima , she will give you ideas for less rich dishes. Thai food isnt that fattening anyway.
