Love this place as it feels really authentic. Thai kitchen, not Softened for Western Taste. The Papaya Salad was super hot and delicious, and my favourite are the vegetarian noodles a la chef, which are also super spicy. Great little hidden gem.

The food at this little restaurant is amazing - very authentic (my husband went to Thailand 15 years ago, he says this is the only Thai place that's given him food flashbacks), and so very spicy if you're not careful! The rice pancakes are amazing,...More
