“Homely, friendly, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

It looks like someone's sitting room almost. Small and intimate, rather eccentric decor and rather run down. We'd always walked past but one cold evening, having rejected a series of other Cowley Road options we gave it a whirl.
It serves really very nice home made Thai food. Simple, well-made and good value. The drinks are good value as well and the service is charming.
Criticism? The toilets need refurbishing - they are scarily delapidated and the stair carpets leading to them make one fear for the general hygiene levels, though the food is definitely freshly cooked and the deep frying is piping hot and excellent.
