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 little setting with an intimate feel. Service was friendly and quick, and the food was excellent. It was all delicious and really authentic - highlights for us were the pad thai and tom yum soup. Really keen to go back!

Well I think my heading says it all! Visited recently with my husband and son and we all thought the food was superb. Restaurant is quaint and decorated with Thai memorabilia so very cosy can be a bit too cosy if the restaurant is full and the tables are very close to each other, the chairs are not the most...

The setting in a converted house looks a little strange from the outside but once you're in you get the Thai character and charm. It reminded me of places I've eaten in Chiang Mai. The food was also very good. You could argue the portions are a little small so set your expectations accordingly and maybe treat yourself to an... More

We had a home delivery from here. I had king prawns in a chilli and garlic sauce which was very tasty. My wife had a veggie dish which was not the one we ordered and was bland. The sticky rice was so sticky it was like a bag of goo! The portions were pretty small too. Delivery also went to... More

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
