“Taste sensation - wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a tired and tatty little cafe but that's not why I want to recommend this place..... It's the outstanding food. What would you rather have? Tip top shop front or heavenly taste? You get the latter, so ignore the dated restaurant and tuck in. The prawn with glass noodles on the speciality list is outstanding and portion sizes are very generous. The crispy duck is a generous size too and you get lots of pancakes. The staff are attentive and service is fast. Great value....What a fabulous place - just go!

“An explosion of tastes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

A no frills, no fuss, crowded little place.

Food was great. I just wish we hadn't ordered quite so many different dishes but it all tasted wonderful - with the exception of an eggplant and tofu salad for a veggie friend which had a very odd taste and he left it. Every dish we ordered was very individual.

They may not have had a alcohol licence in the past looking at earlier reviews but they certainly do now.

Four of us had a really good meal with two drinks each and it came to £77 - really good value.

Don't expect to be wowed by the interior of the place - put the emphasis on the food and you won't be disappointed.

Will definitely return.

“A Real Find!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

This place doesn’t look like a lot from the outside, but the Thai food is FANTASTIC! Prices were reasonable, service was great, and there seemed to be a lot of neighborhood locals eating there as though this was a regular place for them.

“Too stretched”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Food was good enough. Not the best Thai I have eaten but good value for what you get. Unfortunately, the staff are finding it hard to keep up with the reputation that this restaurant has earned. Our starters arrived promptly but I expect that they have them stacked up and ready to go, as they were very popular dishes. We then had to wait almost an hour for our main course before the waiter eventually looked a bit sheepish and scuttled into the kitchen. The main then arrived within 5-10 minutes, so we suspect that our order had been forgotten. During the waiting period, the telephone rang almost constantly with takeaway orders and the kitchen produced bag after bag of takeaway food. The people who came in to collect their orders were quite unpleasant with no regard for the privacy or comfort of people eating their meals. At one point, a couple of guys were standing up either side of our table, talking loudly to each other over our heads. We then had to wait ages for our bill. I will probably order a takeaway from here in the future but I would never eat here again.

“Very good thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Very tasty food.Very good service and excellent value. Priced very reasonable - take away prices. Book in advance because it is always busy - locals know how good that place is.

I gave that place 5 stars because of what you can get for your money. You can find a better Thai food in London but you will need to pay 4 times more for that.

Brilliant
