I live pretty close to the restaurants, and many times when I have nothing at to eat at home I go there. For about 8 pounds you can have a lunch or dinner with real thai food. They don't present the food in the best way, but the taste is really nice.

The almost permanent queue on this place speaks for itself. Quality's great, prices are low and although you are squeezed into a little dining room packed with other customers, you return because it's simply so good.

Good tasty quick food.

They have a quick turn over, and you share tables with other couples, but thats okay. Thats the style of the place and adds to the atmosphere

I am a regular and never dissapointed, staff know whats in the food if you ask! and can help with replacements.

Price very reasonable, 2 mainmeals and drinks about £13... plus tip.

Best thing, the food is also Halal!....

I live in the Kilburn so, this dining Thai canteen comes really handy to me. Before the spring, this restaurant was employing only Thai or oriental people, recently I saw Spanish waiter and other great waiters working, speaking good English, helpful and care FOR CUSTOMERS.

The restaurant is busy, very busy. The new team are very polite.

Love it.

Popped in for Saturday lunch and it was full.
It is a small 'communal' eating experience and take-away service.
Food is fresh, cooked to order in the front (behind the counter), the choice of available dishes is really good and the food flavor and taste is second to none (read: fantastic).
Portions are substantial.

If you can overlook the eclectic crockery, then you will be really impressed with the food and unbeatable value for money.
