“Nice food shame about the atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Some really good Thai food here, seafood soup really well seasoned with lemon grass galangal and red chilli. Green chicken curry had depth and warmth with nice ginger strands, the duck was a bit small but tasty enough. Weird pudding - the hot banana a strange grey colour. £1.00 for coffee? Too cheap to risk it. Service good from lady but man just ignored us all evening and there was only 6 of us in the whole place. Probably return for takeaways or go in a big group and make our own atmosphere.

“Best Asian cuisine in Abergavenny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

If your looking for something a bit different and fresh tasty Thai food then look no further. The decor is one of a kind but the food is second to none. Never had a bad meal there and always packed on Fri Sat

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Having never been to Thailand I do not know how authentic the food is, but I do know that the owner chef is from Thailand and also imports authentic ingredients. The food is always of the highest quality and tastes fantastic. Fresh, light and fragrant. You can also request if you want it with more or less chilli. I would recommend this restaurant and am surprised at the negative reviews as the food is great and the price is on a par with others as the price includes rice or noodles and are not charged as extras.
Tau (the owner chef) has recently started cookery lessons\demonstrations and I have attended recently and found it most informative and inspiring. She really is a great chef and knows her stuff.
The small restaurant is an ecclectic mix of decor which only adds to its charm.
I have eaten here many times and hope to return many more times.

“thai food in abergavenny...never again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Everything in this establishment is done on the cheap except the food which I thought was overpriced although it tasted better than it looked. Yes it is like a front room but one from the 70s and most bought from the £ shop.
I couldn't get out quick enough.
