Even though the owners and chefs are not originally Thai, their cooking resembles the Thai chefs perfectly. The food was divine, with high quality ingredients and perfect use of herbs and spices. The wine list was beautiful. We loved the outdoor terrace in their backyard....More

A lovely Thai restaurant with an unassuming exterior and a wonderfully romantic courtyard to eat in at the rear. You could easily walk past this place without noticing it. But don’t! It serves delicious, freshly cooked food. Service is friendly and prices reasonable.

Good food at a good price with good service, what more do you want... Although I would never find the place myself, I consider it quite hidden actually, I regretted not having been here earlier! Lovely interior as well, Keep up the good work!
