Quaint little hideaway Thai restaurant

I had a Phad Thai and it tasted as authentic as the one you'd get in Thailand. Good portion, nice presentation of the food. Restaurant exudes Asian charm and it's tucked away in a deserted little lane with no hassle of the crowd like the seafront. I enjoyed myself there. Although I thought £10 for... read more

We went here last night with friends that had already been and recommend it. I have to say we weren't disappointed! Sweet and quirky little restaurant with a great atmosphere! Being family run meant that the staff were very friendly and helpful. Food is reasonably priced as were the drinks. We ordered the mixed starters which were to die for... More

Tried this place out as read some good reviews but wasn't impressed. When we called to reserve a table we were warned by the staff that we would have to order a starter and main course compulsorily which we found a bit strange. We were 3 adults and 2 kids and found the place pretty cramped. Seemed to be better... More

Food was great, the spring rolls delivered and the pad thai (duck variant) was proper fresh. Nice ambience but small place, not a lot of seating room, I'd advise booking if you're in a bigger group.

We heard great things about this place so have been planning to come for a while. The starters came quickly and were pretty bog standard. Then, after waiting for about 25 minutes for our mains, the waiter came over and told us it was going to be a while as they had just started cooking our food. When we ask... More

I was advised to visit this place by some Brighton foodie friends and I thought it was wonderful. The food is so fresh and tasty and good size portions. The waiter was so friendly and gave exceptional service even thought the place was fully booked. I cannot wait to go back!!! It's such a lovely place you almost don't want... More

On my two visits I tried the green and red seafood curry. They were both absolutely superb. The guy who services makes you feel really at home and the lady who cooks bring out the food with a smile. The place is a little gem, I really hope they keep it going. I can't wait to go again :)
