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

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!
