Great fresh Thai food

Quaint little white tablecloth place. Food was very fresh and delicious with large portions and ok service. Mint tea was awesome on a cool evening.

We were lucky to accidently walk into this restaurant as we got hungry. I must say this must have been the best meal my husband and I ever had anywhere. Very authentic! You can see your meal being prepared and how clean the kitchen is. The only thing that was not great was the wine, but we did not go... More

all are reasonable Staff very friendly and helpful. Wine pairings very good. Not sure I would have chosen veal cheek, but it was very tasty. After dinner, the chef showed how the dish was prepared. Very open kitchen. Nice experience. Visited nov 2013

Was reccommended by a local person; that this was the best Thai in the area. We weren't disappointed. The food, the service, the wine and atmosphere was stupendous. Good size portions with lots of fragrant flavours. We had the satay chicken and the ribs to start and Pad Thai for main course all delicious.

We had been doing the Red Light District for a few hours and were tired and hungry. Were heading out of the area to find a spot for dinner and came across this restaurant. Weren't quite sure about it but are really glad we stopped. Very cosy, view of the kitchen, polite professional service, (even though we only ordered one... More

Arrived with minimal expectations but food was first class. Intended to sit outside but soon suffered a shower but despite being busy a table inside was soon found. If you like Thai food this restaurant is a must.

This used to be my favorite Thai anywhere in the world. I heard a few years ago it had changed owners and went there soon after, finding it much the same. This time, though, it appears the new owners have put their stamp on the restaurant. Appetizers are close to what I remember, but we ordered our "usual" of Beef... More

We turned up as a group of seven with no reservation on a Friday evening but managed to get a table. Service was excellent and it was explained that as food is cooked fresh there would be a delay if we all had separate dishes. We chose some mixed starters and three mains to share and these all came in... More
