I never leave reviews. Ever. But unfortunately felt compelled to write this one. I love this place for its authentic food, easy location, convenience, the fact it's also a supermarket and even its decor which isnt exactly upmarket. The service is unbelievably terrible. I used...More

Although Durham is probably the place now with the most Thai restaurants per square mile in the UK, there is always room for quality. The restaurant is actually a dining area inside a Thai supermarket, but the food is as authentic as it gets and...More

You'll need to be open to new experiences for this one, and be able to look past the basic decor. Though the place does not look much, as it also doubles as a mini market, the food itself is superb and extremely tasty. I usually...More

This is a basic place serving good Thai food . It is a Thai food shop with a few tables where you eat it is a bit like being in Thailand itself in fact. All the food is very good and the menu changes daily.

This restaurant has a real street food feel to it and delivers authentic dishes at a fair price. The noodle soups are an absolute winner and great value at less than £7. It also sells a large range of Asian ingredients if you want to...More

This is a small Asian market that doubles as a cafe, serving home made, fresh (I believe all) Thai food. The service was very good. Toilets are clean and atmosphere was also nice. Very busy at times and good for people watching. Seafood Tom Yum...More

My family and I eat here all the time. The staff are always pleasant and I think we have worked our way down the menu and haven't had a bad meal yet. It doubles up as a shop so the décor is not up to...More
