Dependable Thai in Helsinki

Been there several times for lunch. Three course lunch for 8,8€. Just decide how spicy you want. What you order is what you get. As long as I am not in Thailand, this is my choice. Shall visit again!

The restaurant is very cozy, but too many tables and chairs make it feel too small and not fun to eat, because lack of personal space... Thai lady who took our order was the rudest ever (my wife is also thai and I came to eat with her there). She started nagging how shrimps cannot be changed to chicken, even... More

Helsinki has many good thai restaurants. This is not good. It is dirty, messy, not quality food and very strange. One time visit is enough.

A nice woman was letting us in, even if it was just minutes before closing. I ordered green curry with vegetables and my girlfriend took red curry chicken. I liked the tastes, which were very much like the real Thailand, but the sauce was a bit to runny. Absolutely four stars, but I think they have to shape up a... More

This restaurant was no disappointment but actually it it was not extraordinary. There was some clumsiness in the serving. However, taken all together I recommend it.

Went here on our last night in Helsinki. They were closing (didn't know they were closing at 8pm based on the times) but they were nice enough to be willing to serve us. Instead of keeping them we got our food to take away back to the hotel. Pretty tasty. The restaurant was small and had nice decorations on the... More

I love Thai food and have been on many travels in Thailand - always looking for culinary experiences. This place is as Thai as it gets with typical, elaborate wooden decor complete with a small Buddhist shrine and a picture of the king on the wall. The reason you should go there, though, is for the food. It is simply... More

This was my first visit to this place. It is a small but rather cozy restaurant with a nice thai ambience. The food we ordered was very good and tasty, just the way I had it in Thailand 2 months ago. It seemed like they are making genuine thai food here, not some bland tourist stuff. Well worth visiting.

I used to work at a Thai restaurant, and this is the best thai food I've had yet in Finland. (Also the spiciest-- trust the chili pepper symbols on the menu.) I was really happy with the strong flavors and fresh taste. It's also a great value for the money. I can't wait to go back!
