The food at this little restaurant is amazing - very authentic (my husband went to Thailand 15 years ago, he says this is the only Thai place that's given him food flashbacks), and so very spicy if you're not careful! The rice pancakes are amazing, as is the spicy seafood soup. Our main courses were lovely too, I had paprika... More

Authentic small Thai restaurant with great traditional food. Hosted by very friendly owner. Lunch time can be busy, best to go in evening. Open plan kitchen where the food is freshly made. The beef and chicken salads for starters are definitely recommendable!

food is delicious, prepared by a Thai couple. Not the cheapest, but always consistently well prepared. Drinks are a expensive, but once in a while going there is nice when you have a craving for fresh thai

Best Tom Yum soup I have ever eaten! We frequently eat here and we love it! We recommend this amazing small authentic Thai place! The food is always fresh and home made.

Very pleasant for lunch. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly service. You may ask your food to me more or less spicy.

Visited for dinner during our trip to Brussels. The food was very good and the lady who served us was extremely friendly. Even helped our daughter with her food. The price was ok. The tables could have been a little further apart but then it is very similar to the many canteen style Thai places that we have visited in... More

I went there because I had great expectations, but it was very disappointing. Food was not amazing and tables too close.

This restaurant is pretty much your average neighbourhood Thai. The food is middle-of-the-road, but reasonably priced for what you get in this location. I’ve been here a few times and always found the service pleasant and reasonably quick.
