We visited about 45 minutes before lunch service ended. The restaurant is very quaint and nice, the staff are nice, the food was quite average. We had the lunch set menu plus mixed starters and chicken satay (bit odd that satay isn't included in mixed starters). Starters were nice enough but the mains weren't great - perfectly fine for an...

Tiny thai which didn't look very posh but nice staff served us all great dishes. We would definitely come here again, and the price was very reasonable

initially put off by how quiet the restaurant was, but decided to try anyway. Service was prompt and helpful, menu choice was great for a small restaurant. The meals were lovely and served very promptly. The restaurant looks dated but if you don't mind that I would thoroughly recommend it.

Great little Thai restaurant in Preston Street. Family run business. Mum does the cooking and her children are the hosts. Tom is always welcoming and goes that extra step to make you feel at home. Love the satay and the spicy duck. Well worth the visit when in Brighton.

A good reliable Thai restaurant, fresh food and good service. Prices are what you expect for a Thai restaurant, although i believe they do lunchtime deals. I have been a repeat customer here many times. The better of the two Thai restaurants on Preston Street!

Literally half our food did not come and had to just go off as they were busy not doing anything. I think food is fine. Just service should really be way better and abit more attentive at most. Did not like waiting for non-existant food to come. Frustrated and don think we would come back.

Food good, but service terrible, I don't think a single word came out of the waiter's mouth, nothing, not a smile, a word, nothing. Good food let down by ignorant staff, will not be returning.

Six of us including a 3 year old stopped in for lunch on Saturday. We ordered from the £6.95 starter & main menu as well as adding satay and crackers to our order. The food was really tasty and the man serving us was good and friendly. Would recommend it :)

Purely went here based on previous reviews and was very impressed. Friendly and efficient service. Went for chicken satay, Thai curry and mixed vegetables, all was extremely tasty and very good value for money. Would definitely return if in Brighton again and highly recommend.
