Lovely dinner, great prices, friendly service

The greeting hospitable, very friendly service, modest surroundings and good food. The pad Thai was great. The green curry spiced to your liking and it came as hot as I like. Mixed starters were good although a little more flavour would have been preferable. All in all a great evening

Lovely food and the restaurant looked lovely with is decorated beautifully with colourful parasols and traditional Thai decorative idols. Only issue is portion size. They were a little small and could have done with a little more on the plate.

Tucked away in Elmers End, this Thai restaurant cannot be faulted on their food. Great food. Service can be very slow, but worth the wait!

This place now accepts Tastecard during the week....so we decided to try. The restaurant is a converted house....unusual from the outside with its AstroTurf grass but fairly authentic inside. The food was most enjoyable and we'd certainly go again. As we went midweek (despite the carrot of a Tastecard) the place was pretty empty....just three couples dining. A shame really... More

This small restaurant is tucked away just off Elmers End Green in what looks like a converted house. Though it is small the tables did not seem excessively packed together. The decor is interesting, with parasols hanging from the ceiling. There is a good selection from the menu, including Thai favourites. To start I tried the Tod Mun Pla, spicy... More

Great food, happy smilie service and reasonably priced. A very authentic little thai restaurant. We had prawns and chicken, all was perfectly cooked with superb spices. One of the best thai meals I've had in the UK.

This Thai is excellent! It's a little tucked away, but is a hidden gem. Great food, excellent service and surprising decor. I've eaten in many Thai's in London and this is one of the best, good value for money.

A charming little restaurant with parasols hanging from the ceiling. The food is tasty and beautifully presented (green curry particularly recommended) - and very good value. On our second visit the waitress brought the wrong dish but realised her mistake and offered to change it. We said it didn't matter so she didn't charge us for it (but I added... More

We go here often - it's a small restaurant (the converted front room of a semi-detached house, basically), but don't let that put you off. The food is great and reasonably-priced. This little restaurant has been ticking along for years, but it really deserves to be better-known. As it is, we can always get a table - we try to... More
