we also went because of trip adviser position and where certainly not disappointed. Service was a bit slow but kind, and the food was excellent. A real refreshing Thai food style with the original Thai taste but lighter. I loved for instance the "red lipstick" which we took with chicken. And very much value for money!!

A really nice budget restaurant that prepares all meals fresh in their open kitchen. The staff are super friendly and we always feel welcome.

We stayed two nights in Besançon as a staging point for a trip through France en route to Switzerland and back. Our second night, we returned late, tired and hungry. I figured the only things open would be pizza and Thai. So when we came out of the car park and into the first street, all we could see was... More

I have had a chance to see Pum and George (the owner and partner ship) showing their cooking style in a class. Not only tast but also the cooking process are wrong from the start. In terms of being a cooking school, the most importance thing is a well-know in Thai Food as well as a well-skill in cooking Thai... More
