Love this place. The food is always so good. Just love their Beach Garden Salad with crispy spinach. And love the way they have modified the menu to serve Thai Tapas.

We went for drinks on Saturday and ended up eating. There is no other way. The aroma of each passing dish is irresistible. They also had live music, which was great. The food was unbelievable and the waiter, as well as the owner were super entertaining. I highly recommend this place.

If you love Thai food then this is your one stop Thai spot in Durban! It's an ideal people watching spot in Umhlanga Village with charismatic waiters and owners bearing the biggest smiles.

Kit and Nina have added to their Thai menu in the most authentic Thai way possible.

This evening we took the recommendation of Kit and had a small calamari starter to share called Kung Thai Calamari. Divine!

We wanted a salad so decided to try the Thai style Green Papaya Salad which was delicious but hot as hell!

Main course was Thai Style Fried Fish with peppers and spicy sauces... I literally had to fight my partner for pieces of it as every piece was eaten with gusto and delight! No joke, this was Kit's recommendation and was fantastic as a meal to share with a bowl of egg fried rice. Perfection at it's best!

For dessert Kit kindly surprised us chilli chocolate sauce and crisp banana slices drizzled with honey and nuts. It was paired with ice cream and a crispy fried batter that was a perfect way to end the evening.

I can't stress enough that this is Thai style food at it's best in Durban but don't take just my word for it... Try it and try it soon

We had a range of menu items and everything was very tasty: pad Thai, honey chicken, duck spring rolls, rice paper wraps etc. We had arrived fairly late and had to have our starters and mains very close together as the kitchen was closing at 9 so better to go earlier!
