What a find

How pleased I am to have finally visited this wonderful, charming piece of Thailand in Brighton. The food was amazing, the service great and the family running the cafe, so friendly. Tookta is a delight and she deserves great things! I can't wait to go back!

It's like having dinner in someone's front room (in a good way). This place is cute and cosy, the staff are friendly and most importantly the food is great. The menu is concise and I think the fewer options afford each dish to be made to a better standard. We tried a couple of different curries and sides - looking... More

Really great Thai meal, lovely service in a tiny restaurant. We booked and were served immediately on arrival. Staff apologised for the wait but we didn't notice, it is made clear that this is a small place with one chef .

It may not look much from the outside but the food is amazing. Everything is fresh and tasty and the service very attentive. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. One note of warning - it only takes cash.

So happy to have found this lovely little restaurant, tucked away in one of the lesser known streets of Brighton. The food was wonderful - especially the Green Curry and the service one of the warmest I've ever experienced. Good value to boot! I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, nor to visit it again.......
