This is a perfectly decent, local Thai restaurant, but there is nothing special about the food that is served. On the night that I visited, I started with a few spicy crackers - the sight of the manager/owner fishing out the crackers from a black plastic bin liner (itself inside a plastic bucket) behind the bar was not particularly appetising, but hey, I knew I wasn't going to get haute cuisine. A starter of prawn cakes was frankly disappointing: tough and chewy rather than light and crisp. However, the meal was somewhat redeemed by a main course of pad thai with prawns, which was pretty tasty, and came with 5 decent sized king prawns (which hadn't been de-veined, but what's a bit of prawn intestine between friends).

The atmosphere is ok, nothing special, and service is efficient. However, there is clearly a loyal clientele, and the manager/owner took time to talk to diners and welcome back regular customers. Also, the price of dishes on the menu I think is generally very good, and the restaurant therefore offers great value for money.

I have long had a problem with Las Vegas casinos luring me with low room rates then charging me a mandatory "resort fee". Well this restaurant does the same thing. The food is affordable and tasty but not particularly complex (which happens when you don't use many ingredients). The service was very good, and the restaurant is clean and comfortable. But beware, when the check comes you'll find they've added a 12.5% "Service Fee". It is mentioned in small print at the bottom of the menu, but they would be more honest if they built it into the menu prices. Cheap tasty food, but shame on them!

在 Earl's Court Station 一出來過馬路左手邊巷子進去就找到了. 道地的泰國口味,價格和份量公道,服務親切!餐廳營業時間 Mon - Sun 5- 11 p.m. Tom yung soup 辣得過癮,喝下去立刻解去這個霧都的刺骨寒意。想念亞洲食物風味的旅人一定要來試試~
Delicious! I'm from Asia, and the food here totally brings me back home!! Two thumbs up!! Give fried noodles and tom yung soup (hot & spicy) a try. Good service and friendly staff. Nice decoration. Cozy and warm atmosphere inside. Fair price versus portion for limited budget. I'll definitely come back!

Having lived in Thailand and still spouting nignoy Thai, this gastronomic experience was an absolute treat. All the favourites were on offer and we tried to taste as many as possible. "Pet" was pet so the chilli experience washed down with Singha beer was just like Bangkok. Well done
