“A Great Surprise Awaits you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

I have been going to the restaurant since the opening and have always found the owner welcoming, friendly and very helpful when especially when are not sure of what to order, having tried more or less most of the dishes favourite is the fish dishes

Décor good not over done, its small but cosy would recommend to all friends, the only downside wine on the pricey side

“Thai fare, as authentic as it gets...!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice place. Quite small, making it nicely cozy. There is not the great showy opulence that is sometimes seen in many Thai restaurants. But the food was really good. It is the owner himelf who waits on you and explains the intricacies of the dish so that you are not left to be blindly choosing from the menu.

The wine was on the pricey side, IMHO
Hence I have marked it down a peg on "value".

A most pleasant evening. We would like to go back...

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

I can't tell you how delicious the food is here, a visit to this lovely little restaurant is a must when in Wimbledon. As soon as you walk in you're greeted by the owner, with a true passion for authentic Thai cooking, He was delighted to tell us that the green looking tomatoes in the green curry were prized Thai aubergines. From the chilled tunes, scented candles and hand thrown elephant crockery. This is a miniature paradise to get away from it all...

“Best Thai restaurant in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is such an amazing restaurant. I have never eaten such good thai food in a restaurant before! We tried this restaurant a couple of months ago and I don't think we have been to many other restaurant since. The food is incredible, the owner is extremely nice and friendly and the price is very good. I would abslutely recommend this restaurant to anyone! We now go there every week for take aways and it's definitly my favourite meal in the week :)

“Excellent food, great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We called in last night (Sunday), and it was reasonably busy for a Sunday. We were seated quickly by the friendly waiter (who actually is the owner). He took our order quickly, and brought our drinks over without delay.

The food was came fairly quickly, we had fishcakes and honey pork skewers for starters, and both were great. We then had phad thai and a green curry - again, both were lovely. The portion size was spot on - not too much that we felt we were wasting any, but enough to be content.

Afterwards, the owner came an had a quick chat with us - and seems very knowledgable about the food he is serving (as he should be!) - he takes great pride in his retaurant.

We'll definitely be going back!
