Went to this restaurant as a last dinner of our short stay in Darmstadt, and was very disappointed. (1) Having eaten in Thai restaurants in a number of cities around the world, including London, Tokyo, Vienna, and Bangkok (airport) the food quality was pretty poor. My red curry with duck lacked the subtle flavours characteristic of Thai food. The rice... More

Well, I ate in so many better Thai restaurants... The food was average. The beef dish contains dry and chewy beef stripes. The chicken skewers weren't good too. The spring rolls and the soup were fine

Nice atmosphere and great stuff. They serve lokal an interantional drinks and very good Cocktails. They got a good variety of dishes, all very good and well prepared. For me the portions could be much more smaller so you can taste more different dishes. Don't forget your reservation!

The food here was delicious! Initially it looked expensive but you get very generous portions and the staff are friendly and multi lingual.

Good variety of dishes, good-sized portions, good value for money, speedy service but a very popular restaurant (at least at weekends, when we've visited, usually early evening) and so one needs to reserve a table to be sure of getting one. We have never had to wait a long time - the only slightly negative point that comes to mind... More

After reading the glowing reviews about this restaurant our expectations were admittedly pretty high going in. The decor was inviting and the service was friendly but both of our meals were nothing special. We requested "Thai spicy" Pad Krapao and the dish was mildly spicy, at best. The Matsaman with chicken was fine but lacked flavor and spice, as well.... More

The good - - fantastic food - best That I have had in Germany; by far - they they say spicy they mean it. Often Thai in Germany is very mild - great service. The staff here is excellent; friendly and attentive without being pushy - did I mention that the food is fantastic? It bears repeating. - the decor... More

Had dinner twice in this restaurant. The restaurant gets busy at times so avoid peak times (8ish) if you can. Week days offer good compromises. Very affordable evening meals can be found: I had the Orchid mixed starter, a Thai squid salad with a Jasmin tea for €17.80 - price correct at the time of review. Service was good too.... More
