“Excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

It is a hidden gem at Limehouse. The service is good and the food is excellent. I ordered a pot of jasmine tea, rice & stir-fry beef and the bill was less than GBP10.

“Their website is the best part!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

As I stayed nearby and I LOVE fresh Thai foods and flavors, I entered this small restaurant with high hopes. Sorry to say that I was deeply disappointed as this joint has on charm at all, very poor service but worst of all - - The food is NOT fresh but based upon your truck shelf of pre-factory ingredients. Curry was premixed pan-nang paste, frozen shrimp, canned coconut milk and without fresh lime leaves, chili or even ginger! what good is it that you get a load of "food" at a low price, when its just junk!? Website is VERY misleading so please in somewhere else!

“Avoid at all costs.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Lousy food, dirty place and poor service. I was staying at a nearby hotel that doesn't serve food and spotted this restaurant on Google Maps. Checked their website (looked enticing) and read some on-line reviews. Had my hopes up but they were rapidly crushed.

The food was tasteless, poorly seasoned (I love spicy Thai food) and luke-warm. The table-cloth was filthy, which should have served as an alarm bell, and the service lethargic.

A friend of mine, who had been there earlier, had a similarly poor experience.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Ordered a takeaway from them this week. My honest opinion Is that it is probably the worst thai I have come across in london. And I have been to a fair few thai restaurants. the tom kah gai ( coconut chicken soup) was revolting, I had to throw It away. The chicken with garlic was also just as bad with a really odd flavour which was not garlic! The chargrilled pork salad was also disturbing to the taste buds. The penang was ok asvwell as the steamed rice. everything else went in the bin and we had toast. I would have been better off eating my £30 than eat here. absolute Disgrace.
