Wouldnt bother again. Why advertise opening times if you're too lazy to stick to them? is it because I'm a solo diner?

What a brilliant restaurant, been here several times for lunch, brilliant service and amazing food, always busy. Evenings I would recommend booking, as it does get really busy. A must if you like thai food.

good price for excellent food in a cosy restaurant. Would've liked the window seat but so does everyone.

Really enjoyed my lunch here. Had a tapas lunch which consisted of 4 different dishes. Loved each of the dishes. The chilli was well balanced with the other flavours & the food has the delicate touch which you expect with Thai cuisine. I would happily go back. Really good value.

We came here for lunch not long after travelling round Thailand so expectations were high. We all liked the idea of choosing one of the set menus. The food arrived quickly and everything was delicious. We liked that the wine included a Gewurtztraminer as it's perfect for Thai food. We found the bill very reasonable. The place is small but...

Ideally situated just off the Lanes, we lunched here twice last week. Service is quick and efficient, the Thai Tapas were excellent - very tasty and only £12 for two. You wouldn't choose to eat here for the ambiance, but hard to beat for value.

My favourite Thai Restaurant in Brighton! Quirky lay out inside - tall and narrow! quite cosy if you get a table tucked away in the corner on one of the floors or very nice to sit outside on a summers evening. The menu has a great variety of food available, wine and drinks menu also adequately filled! Food is reasonably... More

We had a very enjoyable evening here: good choice of interesting dishes which were nicely served. The seating is in small rooms, which are on several floors and I felt a bit squashed in, although this was not a problem to me. Definitely worth trying this place.
