Then at the beginning of this week, our friend who was the GM of the hotel in front of this restaurant... read more

I arrived outside of rush hour and it showed. Service was fast, pleasant and accurate in their order taking. My beer arrived quickly along with free prawn / fish crackers. The Tom Yam Goong was spicy and very authentic in taste as well as ingredients. My Pad Thai had been left sittling for a little while so the noodles were... More

Tiny restaurant across from our hotel. Lovely Thai food that I perceived to be fairly authentic. Lovely crackers which were non-greasy. Very nice mains with good rice and noodles. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. No criticisms.

We ordered 3 appetisers which arrived very promptly. There was quite a long wait for our main courses but the food was delicious, despite my pork being a little cold. Staff were friendly and efficient.

Best panang (smooth creamy curry) I ever had! Wife loved their Pad Thai. Unpretentious yet excellent service, loved the dining experience.

So our group of friends were in the mood for Thai and found this place online. We made a reservation and reached in 15 mins. We were 5 minutes late and were told that they are closed. Today they were closing at 10pm instead of the usual 10:30. We arrived at about 9:45. We were not provided a table as... More

Dear Raoul S Thank you for your review. We apologise for not being able to give you a table that evening. Any booking we received through a third party like Opentable less than 30 minutes before the booking time, would not give us enough time to respond to customer personally should we not able to accept the booking.

Easily within walking distance of south Kensington hotels. Very fast, attentive service. Food is fresh and vibrant. Restaurant very clean. Wide range of Thai plates to select from. Restaurant entrance doesn't do it justice. Enjoy for simple Thai food.

Easy to miss in a block of restaurants & shops, excellent Thai restaurant worth a visit. Excellent staff, we went on a Sunday evening & it was busy but were lucky to get a table straight away. Food very good and not too expensive.

The menu was good and the food and service all good. We foolishly did not book so it was difficult to get a table. The wine and crackers served with it was very tasty.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
