Took my mother & aunt there for lunch. None of us had come across thai tapas before. Great idea, the food is well suited to this style of ordering. We had a fantastic lunch, the food was perfect. Will definitely return

Arrived before lunch rush! Saw 4 tables seated and order after us. All of which were served before us. 30 weeks pregnant and I had to wait because they messed our order up.... when there were no other orders before us!! Wow.

The food is completely excellent and to die for it is just delicious. I cannot express it enough or give it any better review. Thanks for a brilliant dinner we will be back X

Did some sales shopping in tunbridge wells and decided to stop for lunch. Literally came across it by accident. Was in two minds to go in but on looking inside it was packed so decided it must be good. It was loud and busy and everyone seems to be enjoying their meals. Food was great, would definitely go back.

We managed to squeeze a booking in to their very busy diary one Saturday evening just before Christmas. We arrived at 18.45 and were politely notified we had to give back the table by 20.30, which we had also been told on the phone when booking. We chose a couple of starters (the salt and pepper squid was delicious), and... More

Rainy Sunday evening, restaurant relatively quiet. Good service. Good food. Sharing platter as a starter was the highlight.

Really great find in Brighton. Some of the best Thai food I've eaten. It's cosy and very convenient. The staff are incredibly nice and very accommodating. Not the cheapest or the most expensive, but hard to beat for value. Excellent place, if you find yourself hungry in Brighton then definitely go here..!
