This restaurant is more of a takeaway place, but I ate inside and was pleasantly surprised. The tom yum seafood soup is one of the best I have had in my life - just the amount of sour and chilli for my liking. I have been all over Thailand, and it was hard to find a soup as good as... More

I stayed at the Milano services apartments close by and have come to this restaurant for take away many times. The food is always delicious and prepared fresh and quickly. I love Thai food and have tasted it both abroad and in Thailand; this place lives up to its name. As in the subject: I did not eat in the... More

I've found the good to be pretty good here most of the time. I do however find one of the staff members arrogant and rude. Doesn't look at you when you ask for something and won't listen to specifics of your order. The kitchen staff seen friendly but just being let down by table service.

This is essentially a take away establishment with some tables inside. It isquite spartan but the food was stunning and the service excellent. It seems to be run by young Thai people. We went there twice because the food was so good.

Delicious food that was a decent serving size. The service was quick and all at a decent price too! Quite small and cosy which adds to the charm and it is cash only.

We tried this place yesterday based on reviews from urbansppon and were not disappointed. We three shared three different types of dishes, curry, noodles, stir fry, one chicken, one fish, and one vegetables. The three of us all like spicy so we asked for extra spicy and they accommodated us perfectly. They were even kind enough to take photos of... More

We discovered this restaurant through an Ouffer voucher offer and four of us went Saturday night. The voucher said 4 dishes per couple and so they were but half were ok and half weren't. No real choice. We had chicken satay (quite nice) and mixed spring rolls which were were so-so. Then we got chicken padgrapaw which was not bad... More

Had I read the reviews prior to dining I probably wouldnt have dined at this restaurant as it appears that there are some hygiene issues. In saying that I can only report what I experienced. Food was lovely but ambiance was very poor and the place could certainly do with a freshen and clean up. Our bill came to exactly... More

Ate there yesterday and found a strand of hair in the tom yum kung (prawn tom yam soup). A really crowded place that is not very well managed with just 2 waitresses running the show on the ground. Food was just average and not Thai enough for me.
