“Great value and a great welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Rather unprepossessing external appearance but don't be fooled -great value food, well-cooked and a very friendly welcome.

Rather than takeaway I ate in. For £6 I got a green curry, rice and a bottle of water on a proper plate with real cutlery. Great value for money, if not a huge portion, but it suited me.

Having had very high expectations from all the rave reviews I was hoping for home made green curry paste rather than bought in but for the price that might  have been an over-ambitious expectation.

Finally what will stay in my mind for some time is the zen-like calm inside. No Gordon Ramsay histrionics here!

“Very authentic - way better than the thai restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The food here is excellent. We have travelled all ver Thailand many many times and this takeaway is so authentic. Its like thai street food but with much better hygiene. Stay away from the restaurants and grab a take out from here. The only place better is my kitchen when im cooking thai food

“Absolutely fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Good food is not that easy to come by in Lincoln and so you are used to making compromises (Wagamama). Chef Phong really is the exception. Stunningly good!

“Perfection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Doesn't look special from the outside, but this is a real gem. Excellent hygiene rating and the food is the best Thai food I have tried in Lincoln!

“best smile best food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

chef phong may not look like much from the outside but the hygiene rating is clearly visible and speaks for itself . Chef Phong has the best smile and serves the best food in lincoln in fact pound for pound he has is probably the best food in the uk or europe . he deserves credit from the city of lincoln because we find excuses to go there and do things there that we could do anywhere just for a plate of chef phong . his timekeeping is a erratic and but we have sat in the car in the pouring rain waiting for him to open counting the seconds . simple fresh one plate dshes cooked to flavour and texture perfection in a few minutes with the broadest genuine smile you ever saw . the slightly chaotic looking kitchen with computer displaying on line visual chat in the background from thailand ( or in thai at least ) adds a touch of authenticity .
