“Worth the wait”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

I ate here three times during a trip to Chiapas. It is the best (non-Mexican) restaurant in the country with a cozy space, great food, great service and a charming chef/owner.

“great dining surprise in san cristobal”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Though I made it through my whole south-of-mexico trip on almost nothing but (really good) mexican cuisine, the surprise of finding a thai restaurant in the middle of chiapas was a very welcome change of palet and taste! I found this thai kitchen amidst the little coffee shops, restaurants, handicraft shops and bars, only adding to san cristobas magical and cosy atmosphere.
It's teeny tiny. litterally. Making it really cosy. Get there early before they run out of food! I guess the word got out of this nice little place, because people were turned away after I arrived (and this was around 7:30 pm), with only two dishes left on the menu. Nevertheless, very nice food, at democratic prices!And their warm teas are also great, especially for the cold winter nights in sancris. I really recommend it.

“awesome!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

It is a tiny place, with only five tables and everyone is taken. I was about to leave when the waiter comes out and tells me that one table is leaving in a few minutes. He takes my order on the street corner and tells me my food will be ready by the time my table is available. He is right. I had ordered the Pad Thai and a Thai Iced coffee. Two thumbs up! If you like Thai food, do NOT pass this by!

“Pretty good Thai food in Chiapas!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

OK, it's pretty good Thai food, but when you come from an area where there is excellent Thai cuisine on every other street, it is not spectacular, just nice it is here in San Cristobal.
