Service was great - lady was a little grumpy - could smile. Others were all fantastic. Food was excellent and atmosphere was really cosy. Would definitely recommend!!!!

We wanted to try this Thai restaurant while in Munich as we love Thai food and it seemed nice from the reviews on Tripadvisor. The first night we went it was already booked out, so we made a booking for the following night. The waiting time (to be seated and then to get food on the table) was long, no appetizer or complimentary snack to ease the wait, which I find bizarre, only a small cup of hot lemon tea, which made us even more hungry :-/

The menu was OK, although lots of stuff that I was hoping to find was missing (such as vegetables and smaller side orders), and the ridiculously high prices didn't invite me to try out several different dishes.

What we ordered, honestly, didn't taste like real Thai food. It was too sweet, too bland, missing the sharp and fresh tastes that are so delicious about Thai cuisine, such as lemongrass, galangal and such.

The satay chicken skewers tasted like they had been drenched in sugar syrup, the fried chicken cutlet appetizer was a soggy fried meatball-like substance that must have come straight from the freezer, it certainly didn't taste fresh. The sauces were OK but nothing remarkable, and the peanut sauce that I usually love was nauseating.

Both main courses that we ordered, choosing from the Recommended by the Chef list, were quite demoralizing. Bits of chicken swimming in a sea of liquidish sauce, both tasted the same (but were different dishes). The abundant vegetable pieces were completely uncooked, yet just mixed in with the warm chicken and sauce. I do love raw veggies, but here they didn't really fit in. My dish had avocado in it, and the flavors just didn't blend, it was quite bad in fact. We left half of our order on the plate.

The price, simply too high when faced with the quality and quantity of the food. The bill was just presented in the middle of the table, in the open air, embarassing my date. We certainly do not expect this from a "nice" restaurant. No final offer of a sweet treat, a digestive, a candy, nothing. All in all, we paid about 10 times what we would have paid in Thailand for the same stuff (and it didn't even remotely taste the same), which is ridiculous, like if you had to pay 50€ for a pizza.

Save up some money and go to Thailand; for example, avoiding to have dinner here!

The atmosphere and decor are nice, a bit too loud maybe but it seems to be the standard in Munich. Lots of smiles on our way in, not a thank you or special politeness on the way out.

NOT RECOMMENDED

Was here with a group of colleagues. The atmosphere is nice. Staff is friendly and well mannered. The food is good and has a nice Thai taste to it. The portions are a bit small though. Price wise it is a bit on the more expensive side, but I would say it is worth it.

Try the satay as a starter (number 3): yummy! Also the mint ice pepper desert has an original and nice taste to it.

Weird thing is that they do accept American Express, Visa, cash and European bank cards for payments, but not MasterCard which is generally accepted. Split bills can be arranged, tips are luckily not forced upon you.

Would recommend placing a reservation as the place typically is full.

Worth visiting, also for couples!

My husband had never eaten Thai food before and is always a bit leary when trying new cuisine. Yum - Thai made him a Thai food lover! The restaurant atmosphere is perfect for an upscale casual dinner. The staff was attentive and everything we ordered was hot (temperature and spice) and tasty. I wish we had a Yum Thai to go to in the US.
