We came here on our first night of staying in Penzance. The service was faultless and our food was delicious. My girlfriend is Thai and she was delighted by the authenticity of the food. Although we both would have preferred some more chilli in our dishes, that is really the only downside we could think of and that is really... More

We visited this restaurant having passed it a few times on our dog walks and the smells were always enticing. We were so pleased we did. Tucked away in Queen Street, the restaurant is small but very clean. The staff were really friendly, welcoming and helpful. Not having read any reviews we were unaware it was BYO but that was...

I lived in Thailand for a year and this is some of the nicest, straight forward Thai I've had since returning to the UK. The stir fried vege was delicious, as was the chicken stir fry with cashews. Flavoursome and not coated in sticky sauce. Lovely! Went on the first night of a five day stay in Penzance and didn't... More

Best Khao pad ever. It was just in the next street to our holiday accommodation. We went in for dinner one night and went back the next day for a takeaway. I had Khao pad again.

Family comments- delicious, plenty of it, great service, well presented. Yep we enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was very laid back, and the kitchen was very clean. On holiday so unfortunately won't be able to go back :'(

This ranks amongst the best Thai food we've had. It's small but is cosy, family-run place with a simple but attractive decor, nice ambience and lovely staff. They are very accommodating to any dietary needs and the food is truly delicious. The location is back-street but very central.

Lovely small but authentic Thai restaurant. Fantastic food and great service. It is BYO but there is Co-Op just up the road. It is very popular so book ahead.
