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

We've been using the restaurant for many years, and taken many friends and relations there. Even the most travelled agree that the Thai food is excellent , and you simply cannot fail to be impressed with the venue.. You will either love it it hate it... We are in the first category. The Pad Thai is great and the green... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and we love it. It's small and cosy, like someone's living room, and full of Thai bric-a-brac. The food is excellent, much like Thai home cooking, and the prices are very reasonable. Service is usually good and very friendly. It can be a bit fraught when it's busy - but it's rarely... More

Food was awful, bad service. The restaurant is crammed with tables (claustrophobic atmosphere and decor). Other people were sitting around and literary touching each other. Some loud noisy drunks and weird people go to that restaurant. Never again

The food is very tasty and of good quality and the service is friendly and prompt. The restaurant itself if just lovely - like being in someone's house for the evening!

We love Thai food and try all new restaurants for comparison. Our favourite London Thai is The Mango Tree but this restaurant come a very close second with its flavours. We liked the presentation apart from the outdated sculptured vegetables. It is an unexpected find in an area not reknown for its cuisine.

Food and restaurant is on a par with other local thai restaurants. We've eaten at the restaurant once, which is basically a converted front room in a terraced house. Weirdly it does feel authentic though which i can comment on as ive been to thailand several times. We love thai food, particularly when you can get it delivered at home.... More
