I was meeting a friend for dinner near Waterloo and was recommended this place by a workmate - definitely wouldn’t have found it otherwise! It’s a very unassuming shop front without much(/any) indication that it’s a Thai restaurant.

We managed to get a seat straightaway but as it’s a small place, it was packed out (even on a Monday) so we seemed to get lucky. The service was friendly enough throughout but we did feel a bit rushed, I understand that people were waiting for a table but they couldn’t get us out quick enough!

But the food was so lovely, it came out quickly and was very flavoursome. If you don’t mind a swift meal, I’d highly recommend.

We visited this cafe yesterday for lunch. It was packed with groups waiting for tables. We have the set lunch each and it was fabulous! Definitely going back again

It was refreshing to go to a cafe which was not trying to copy an American coffee chain. Real tea which was strong and fresh.

I love thai food and had gotten this place as a recommendation by friends. However, it didn't quite live up to expectations.
This is one of those small, cash only places. From the get-go, staff were rather unfriendly and short. We were seated eventually, very close to the toilets and with a narrow walking path right next to our table, so people kept bumping into us throughout our meal. It really wasn't very comfortable.
Food came out quickly, but was somewhat flavourless and rather mediocre. Coupled with the terrible service, it just wasn't a good experience.

Came here before going to the Old Vic and had a great, no frills meal. Dumplings to start & then pad Thai. Would recommend!
