This must be the smallest restaurant we've ever visited. In fact, the entire floor space, including the kitchen and toilet, would fit in our front living room. Judging by the comments we were hearing from our neighbours a scant few feet away, it's clear that the restaurant has a devoted following. It's also been going for 20 years, so it's... More

Just because a restaurant is small does by no means make the food bad. This 36 seater offers some of the best Thai food I have ever had. Malcolm who owns the establishment and his wife have produced an intimate dining venue as if you are eating in their front room. Just writing this review gets my mouth salivating remembering... More

Not in a great setting but the most wonderful restaurant with great hosts, 7 tables and fantastic food. Prawn toasts a must. We were told to steer clear of the noodles as generally cooked too much! Bring your own booze too (no corkage)

After reading all the glowing reviews, we decided we had to try this place. My husband and I love Thai food. The food is good, it appears to be all home made although the meat appears to all be pre-salted to preserve it. The £12.50 seafood stir fry would possibly have been better value if there had been any vegetables... More

Nice and cozy restaurant. Service with a smile++. Quality of food (shell shuan shim style) is excellent. Can recommend for Thaifood beginners as well as for the more experienced.

As a result of reading the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to book a table for my husbands' birthday. It has to be said that all the reviews are spot on! We have never been to Thailand but had what we believe to be a real authentic taste of the culinary delights it has to offer. The greeting... More

I dined here with friends who live in the area. I'm so jealous of them! A few minutes' walk from their house is, quite possibly, the best Thai food you will get anywhere in the UK. This tiny neighbourhood restaurant serves dishes bursting with flavour and singing with fresh herbs and spices, all exquisitely balanced. It's quirky, it's fun and... More

Been many times with family but went as a couple this time. I adore this place and it didn't let me down. The service was exquisite and personal, the food to die for at every course. We had an extremely special night there and can't wait to go back. Don't let the location put you off, it is a hidden... More
