Great flavours in the northern Thai food. Particularly enjoyed the fried fish fillet in any way it was cooked. The prawns tempur and chicken satay, together with all the curries were excellent.

Came here a year ago and now back again - same excellent food even though it has moved to smaller premises. If you want really good Thai food and charming service this is one of the best!

Lovely Thai food, seems authentic Thai style as far as I can judge. Nice helpful staff. Clean. Spicy if you want it. Located near the Bang Niang market, down a side road - seemed farther from the main road than the map told us. We will be back to try the hot pot which looks good.

We found this restaurant truly outstanding. Having lived many years in Thailand we came back to enjoy a holiday in Khao Lak and were surprised to discover a restaurant serving Thai Isaan food. What a great discovery! Food was genuine, professionally prepared by a family from Isaan. They were offering a good variety of menus. It was truly unique. During... More

Had the chu chi curry and cashew chicken. Some of the best food we have had in our month in thailand, would recommend! Good service and fair prices (120-160 baht for main)
