Service was good but we were very disappointed with the food. Tom yum soup sweet rather than sour & spicy, spring rolls average, chicken green curry had tinned bamboo shoots, minimal chicken & 1 piece of capsicum as a garnish. Mixed vegetables in oyster sauce were good. Quite small serves & expensive for what you get. Eg £5 for 4 small spring rolls even rice was expensive. Wouldn't go back.

We decided to eat here after reading previous complementary reviews on tripadvisor. It was a mild evening and so we were able to sit outside in the cosy seating area at the front of the restaurant, the staff were very welcoming and pleasant. However the food was underwhelming and value was poor.

A solid performer, conveniently located near Earls Court tube and a pretty little side street full of charm and good food!

Been here a few times over the years, never changes, friendly service, can go "off menu" with special requests, and while portion sizes aren't huge, they are sufficient, and the cost is reasonable, so just order more if you are still hungry!

Is tucked away and you could easily miss the entrance as it is set back from the street through a small entrance to tiny courtyard with a couple of outside tables.

And if you do venture here from the exhibition centre and can't get in there are other choices right there, incl the little french restaurant, chinese, indian, kings head etc.

An enjoyable and relaxed meal without any pressure.

I found this restaurant tucked away in pretty much a hole in the wall, saw the sign saying Thai food and you go through a gap in the buildings which opens up into a triangular patio area with a few tables, the main restaurant was inside and as it was such a lovely spring day I really wanted to sit outside. One of these was vacant so decided to go for it, not expecting much as the food seemed quite cheap. I had a couple of glasses of red wine which was very cheap at £2.95 a glass and good quality. I had a starter of squid rings in batter with chilli sauce, it was nice but the chilli sauce was thick like honey, too much for me. I then had the Green Chicken curry and rice, which was brought out in a separate bowls and it was absolutely delicious, I could not fault it at all. The service was really good and prompt, I didn't have to wait long for any of the food. I had two waitresses serve me both in Thai dress, one was really nice and polite but the other older one was a little grumpy and never said a word. Good food, nothing fancy but good value and would recommend.

This is a bit of a gem, hidden away in Hogarth Place slightly off the beaten track.

Food is very punchy and authentic. Some dishes are almost too spicy - our friends we dined with were steering us away from some of the dishes as being too hot even for their experienced palates.

A good indicator of the authenticity of the place is the number of Thais eating in the place, including the brassy Thai hooker who sat next to us with a nervous American client last Saturday night.

All the food is good, the mixed starters is a great combination and you cannot really go wrong with the red and green curries.

Remember to keep the Singha flowing as the food is hot.

Waitresses are neither brassy or hot but are friendly cheerful Thai auntie types who bustle about not entirely efficiently but with lots of good humour and enthusiasm.

It's a whole lot more fun than any of your Thai Square formulaic chains and is definitely worth a visit.
