Good food

I would highly recommend this restaurant to those looking for a nice but cheap dinner. The food was tasty and the server even taught you how to eat the dish! Definitely worth the money you spend.

Many restaurant options in this district of PP. We were walking around looking for lunch without any particular food in mind and went into Tom Yum for Thai. Varied menu of Thai and Khmer dishes. It was a hot January day and the server asked if we wanted to sit upstairs in the aircon dining room. "YES!" However when we... More

Better places in the area. My GF had masaman curry which was pretty bad. It was very sweet and in a thick, ketchup like sauce. I had red curry which was OK but no better. Can't complain at the prices but you'll find better Thai and Khmer food in many of the surrounding streets.

Massaman curry served here doesn't have much in common with the fragrant Thai dish you might be expecting. It tastes like sweet and sour chicken from a cheap Chinese takeaway with a generous dollop of ketchup. My boyfriend's red curry was a little better, but still below average and far from authentic Thai. Won't be coming back.

Really good value. Decent service. Nice food. I recommend this for quasi-authentic Thai food. Give it a try.

Went here because it got decent reviews and I live close by. Had pad thai which honestly was way below average. Extremely sweet, and noodles were dry. Service was good, and portion was generous. But if it doesn't taste good, then those are moot points to make. Cannot recommend at all, could may be pass if you have never tried... More

This place was a surprise. The food is really tasty, try the fried cashews and satay chicken as a starter.. I had paeneng chicken and that was good. The Tom Yum soup was a killer. And perfectly spiced up.

The decoration is not that high-class, but I really recommend the food here because it tastes authentic and very yummy. (The price is cheap, but the food is impressive)

I was fortunate enough to get tips of the best in PP by a local friend and this is a true gem. Great food indeed. Variety is superb and i do not believe anyone can be disappointed eating here. I also want to say, if you are to be charged more then USD1.00 anywhere for a fresh coconut don't stay.... More

Nothing fancy, lots of tables, but nice good food and not at all expensive. I often eat the chicken with cashew or sweet and sour fish with rice. Meal with a soft drink for around $ 5,
