I ate lunch here recently during a visit to this area. My husband and I were starved and looking for something reasonable and quick. This small place was a great find. The currys we ordered were really well-prepared and reasonably priced and the service was very good. English menus were available. The restaurant is upstairs and navigating the stairs is required.

美味しかったけど値段的には理不尽です。パッタイは¥1080で、量は普段より2倍くらい少ないです。ガッパオライスの量はよかったけれども、値段は¥1400でした。
2年前にこの店に行ったことがあるけれども、その時パッタイの量は普通でした。

It was delicious but the size wasn't worth the price. Pattai was about half of the original size you can get in another restaurant. Not worth at all.

We only came here once at a really busy time in the evening, therefore the waiting time was 30-40mins. The restaurant is small but full of character. We tried the only non-veg curry available, which was super spicy. We love thai food, but this one was really spicy.

Thai restaurant is located in the back road from Meiji street in Harajuku.
The restaurant had a rustic atmosphere with a lot of wooden interior of Thailand.
Lunch sets were provided, and set meals had salad, curry, dessert and drink. Prices were about 1000 yen. I think when compared with the surrounding lunch market price, there had a enough volume that it was profitable.
I also had a Thai style tea, and I was surprised it was 750 yen, very expensive. I felt a usual menu might be slightly more expensive.

Second time to Kaffir Lime, first thing that welcomes you is the warmth and friendly ambience. Restaurant is themed to look like Siam-era, small but comfortably cosy.

Owned and served by Thais, you will be delighted to sample dishes that are prepared authentic to Thai standards. Most of the dishes on offer are good, I particularly liked the deep fried chicken and fried rice. Best complimented with a Kirin draft on top.

If you have a group or do not want to disappointed for dinners and weekends, reservations are a must.
