“Excellent Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Myself and 4 friends were in Brussels for a weekend break, our apartment was just around the corner from this wonderful restaurant, that is how we found it - we always look for a busy restaurant as this usually means it is a good one, this one was packed and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing, we had a real mixture of starters and mains, all of which were devine, we could choose if we wanted spicy, very spicy or boringly mild :-). The house wine was most acceptable, the service was amazing, really good fun and such a happy team. Thank you. Looking forward to returning already!

“Mr Gin Tonic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Simply the best. Not just for its quality of food but for its service and above all the good sense of hunor of the waiters. We tried something different here like the Seafood salad, escalops.. By the way, if you think you can handle spice,ask for the fresh chilley but do not hold me responsable,simply HOT.
Located in a nice area close to bars and restuarantes. Reccommend reserve. WE WILL BE BACK.

“Nice Thai restaurant in a street full of them”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

It was almost 10pm on a Friday night when a group of 7 decided it was time to have dinner. We came to Fanny and they gave us a table after 5 mins waiting. Good food, good house red wine, nice staff and affordable prices. It was 25 euros per person with plenty of food, wine and water for everyone. I'll come back

“Great food, but pay attention if you are allergic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We went to this restaurant on the 30th of december, i liked very much the atmosphere, the food was really good, my girlfriend (she's vegetarian), had a soup and vegetarian noodles that were great!! I had a typical thai chicken salad and then another dish made with chicken, vegetables and potatoes... This is what was written on the menu: they forgot to add that this dish was made and of course served in coconut milk, and i'm allergic to coconut! So, i asked the waiter an explanation for the missing mention of this ingredient on the menu, he said that all this type of dishes (called tom ka) are cooked in Milk coconut. In any case, he agreed to change my dish with another chicken dish, served with thai basil, that was great. In italy we have a lot of problems, but luckily all bars and restaurant must list all the ingredients of all dishes, in order to avoid any type of problem to allergic people! In Belgium there are probably different laws, because i noticed this in some other restaurants. The staff was however very kind and sympathetic. Another thing: watch your head when you go downstairs to the bathroom!!

“Thai in Bruxelles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

We wait a bit too much to eat but the food was good. And it is not expensive at all. Good choice, in the same street there are a lot of asiatic restaurants.
