The old saying " Never judge a book by the cover" rings true here. The interior which is painted blue with a palm tree gives the impression that the food could be bad, just like the decor, But we decided to stay anyway. I had the pad Thai which was actually amazing. And overall everything was great and not expensive.

Good Thai style snack lunch - freshly cooked, but focusing on stir-fried. We really enjoyed our lunch - especially the deep fried tofu - which was really amazing - and the squid. Pad thai was OK but not to-die-for. Would be happy to eat here again but probably go for the yellow or red curries. Someone at an adjacent table... More

This is a really tatty, basic looking restaurant, it's more like a cafe inside and it's all a bit rough and ready. You take your own alcohol with you and pay £1 each corkage. What it lacks aesthetically it gives back in the quality and standard of the food. Very good Thai food, we have eaten here several times. You... More

What's to say about this place? Not much that's positive. Okay, front of house seemed okay when we walked in, and after ordering two eye wateringly expensive beers, as it was a really hot day we decided to sit in the outside garden area. I use the term 'garden' loosely. On the way through to the outside area it was... More

This is a sweet little restaurant in a good location, the fact that it's BYOB is a definite selling point. However, whenever I've dined here I've been slightly underwhelmed by the food, some dishes better than others, but it definitely isn't one of my favourite Thai restaurants in Brighton. I have also had experiences of staff being slightly rude here,... More

Plus points: Tasty pad Thai, BYOB Minus points: Friendly but inefficient service, very oily Penang curry, greasy starters, tables near the door cold due to draughty window and door. Overall not recommended but ok in an emergency

Grand little place in Brighton, excellent friendly service. Good food (heart shaped rice!)and the total came to £25 (including tips and drinks) for the 2 of us. But the best part of it is the toilet!! I'm not going to spoil anything (okay maybe a little) but never in the history of sanitation has going to the loo been such... More
