We just returned from dinner. This was a delightful find. The food is some of the best Thai food we have eaten anywhere. The restaurant is very small, with seating at casual tables. Service was quick. The food was delicious. We will definitely fit in one more meal here before this vacation is over.

Just back from our first meal in Sydney and it was very disappointing . Sloppy service by very bored looking staff,no atmosphere . Have to say it has been one of the most tasteless Asian meals I have had. I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

Went to this Thai restaurant twice (it was that good) during our stay in Sydney.. Both times with my partner and daughter and boyfriend who recommended it. Always very busy so had to wait a little on both occasions but well worth it. Great selection of food, which arrives at different times, but this adds to the experience and gives... More

I really don't understand how this place can be packed and people can give it a good review. Had a table for 6, we were sat on the street (which I wonder if they have a council permit for) felt pressured into ordering quickly so I just had pad Thai, which was lumpy and sloppy, I have paid less for...

this is the second time we have eaten here, we come each time we visit Sydney. There are no frills, bring your own alcohol and no booking. There may be a wait at busy times but it's worth waiting for. Good variety of tasty dishes, speedy service and great value for money. Must be the best in Sydney.

I dined here on a Thursday night, it was very busy but only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The food was very good however we felt slightly rushed to finish our meal. Would recommend for a quick byo restaurant!

Do not go here! Went here with a few of my friends for a celebratory dinner and we found a whole giant cockroach in our Panang curry. Absolutely disgusting. Used to be my favourite place for dinner, and now I will never go back. Cannot believe this has happened after I have been a long time customer.

This place was right opposite our hotel in Sydney (central station hotel) and it was pretty packed day in, day out. Managed to sneak in when it was a bit quieter one evening and the food was fantastic, ideally for sharing though. A little bit pricy considering it's location and its a small place that only takes cash, however the... More

We walked over around 8.30 pm and ordered some take away at the counter, didn't have to wait very long for it to be done (the restaurant was quite full as well). Very nice and spicy food.

Terrible service! I arrived 5 minutes earlier than my friend and they asked me to standing wait outside until my friend arrives, even they have LOTS OF VACANT tables and chairs, and I was carrying a heavy big bags! Because they don't want me to occupy their table even it's half EMPTY!!! I'll never ever come again!!!
