This upstairs restaurant has tables close together, but this won't matter when you're enjoying the food. The curries are faithful to what one can find in Bangkok and a generous serving of rice ensures you can enjoy all the sauce when your meat and vegetables are gone.

This was a real find! Great, authentic Thai food at reasonable prices in the heart of D4. Service was friendly and helpful - the green curry was ordered extra hot but we were wisely advised to take it as it comes and add chopped chili powder if required. Good advice! My wife had excellent tiger prawns and my green chicken... More

Love, love, love this restaurant. Have eaten here on three occasions, twice with friends and most recently with three children. On each occasion food was delicious and service excellent. Will eat here each time I stay in area.

Dined here with two colleagues. The room is cosy and quaint with a custom woven carpet with their name repeated over and over. Loved that. The room is quite snug so you can easily overhear conversations and I felt a little claustrophobic. They greeted us nicely and seated us. The Thai crackers were nice. Starters were served swiftly. My veggie... More

My husband loves hot, flavorful food. He would have eaten here every day if he could (and if his stomach lining would have allowed it:). They also serve milder version for those, like me, who can't take the heat. The food wasn't just hot, it was also full of flavor.

I dined here with 12 others after attending a meeting nearby. It was my suggestion to go here, partly because it was convenient, partly because they catered for a coeliac in the group and also because of the incredible value for money their 2 course early bird menu offers. It was a great choice. Service was excellent, food was fabulous... More
