“Great Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Excellent restaurant with authentic cooking. We sat by the window near the entrance but the open kitchen was fun to watch inside. It is more of the gourmet thai than the street Thai food. The presentation was impressive and food was all consistently good.

“Good Thai cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We've been three times, including a visit with the parents, one of which was not a Thai food fan. The food has been good on all occasions, and converted the parent. They avoid the really obvious dishes, without doing anything too odd. The ground chicken dish was wonderful but extremely hot (this was quite welcome - spice is something you don't often get in Germany). Their sweet and sour is a refreshing take on a tired format.

The only areas for improvement are the decor (a little cliched and bland though the extractor fans are impressive), and the drinks seem a little overpriced. Otherwise, recommended.

“Excellent thai and beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

The pllace itself is very nice, the service is really kind and the food is excellent. We tried various dishes and they were all fresh, tasty and really good. Value for money is also ok and you should try the drinks, as they're well done! Green curry chicken is really top!

“Funky thai place, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went to the Goodtime restaurant yesterday evening, recommended by our consierge at the hotel. We would never have come here without that recommendation - the place looks quite dull from the outside - but inside, what a nice decor, good music and friendly staff.

We had fresh spring rolls and papaya salad for starters, phad thai, panang curry and chicken cashew nuts for main course, and absolutely no room for desserts. The portions were big and plenty and the food was presented beautifully on the plates.

Do try an Asian cooler if you go there - it's like a Caipirinha but without the alcohol. Instead it is a mix of lime and thai basil, ginger ale and cane sugar. Very extraordinary and fresh.

The "children" (15+20) were very pleased with everything too - we'd go back anytime.

“Poor food and service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

This restaurant is in a nice setting close to the underground station Hausvoigt platz. We went there for lunch. We had chicken satay, duck with plum sauce and fish, which was supposed to be whole. None of the dishes we had order had really a good asian taste. Worse of all was the fish, which was small and completely dried.
The prices were expensive in relation to food presentation and quality. The service indifferent to any wishes of the clients. The waiter did not react to complain about food in any way. Considering the availability of excellent asian restaurants in the same area, this is not a place for us to return.
