The food is as good if not better than what you can eat in Thailand. The dishes are so flavorful and tasty from all the herbs and spices. To top it all, the price is reasonable.

There are many simply Thai restaurants in Shanghai and that all have the same menu. I went many time in this one in hongmei Lu. There are two floor and at rush time it's always full! The food is amazing, try their curry or noodles and fresh juices! I don't give 5 stars because not everyone who works here it's... More

The first time we came here with friends to dine outside. The food was somewhere between average to good Thai food and the drinks were lovely. It's a great atmosphere sitting outside and there are many menu and sharing options great for big groups. However, the last time we came back and we had to sit inside as it was... More

I'm a regular diner both social and business and I've seen this restaurant grow into a good quality reasonably authentic Thai Restaurant. Staff are attentive and friendly, food covers all the popular Thai favourites across starters mains and deserts. Stand outs for me are the fresh Thai salads, Tom Yum soups and the massaman curry if you can get past... More

Good Thai restaurant, I would nevertheless say it's rather standard quick food than delicate Thai one, thus not unforgettable. Well located in a very fashionable street, with an outside terrace that's enjoyable. Fairly priced, it's perfect for a quick end of day lunch around a beer, the more so as you can finish the day in the nearby bars!

I was far from being convinced the first time. Gave a 2nd chance for lunch ( instead of dinner last time) firstly the food was better ( papaya salad fresh, curry ok). I still find the price high for what it is ( 400 rmb for 2) but this time i give 4. Anyhow all prices of the street are... More

Having been in this restaurant many times I was looking forward to how it may have changed four years later. The food was excellent, even better than I can remember. We loved the cold dishes as well as the hot dishes and the curries. However it seemed double as expensive than a few years ago.

We came into this place quite sudden and didn't get the table immediately. But as good service they called us to come when table was ready for us. We ordered several dishes and food was tasty and very Thai like. I think still I explore new places after this place.

The food tastes really good, and has strong Thai flavors. The dishes are relatively small sized. We can order 3 dishes for 2 people. My favorite dish is the soft shell crab. It tastes very unique due to the mayo and pork floss on top. The service is okay. Not great. Altogether we paid around 400 RMB for 3 people.

We went to this restaurant in the evening and had a table outside. The atmosphere was very good and the food was delicious. Though we were 8 people we shared a lot different dishes and they were all of good quality and taste. Absolutely recommendable...

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
