Description: A contemporary and magical place where, by a scenery based on feng shui principles -art of well being & harmony- you are plunged into a warm and exotic atmosphere that is so much appreciated by "real thai cooking" lovers. The blazing red of the chandelier and the walls symbolizes fire meeting water of the mysterious fountain and precious wood of the panelling. all surrounded by a lounge music. On the ground floor, you are welcome by a stained-glass decorated bar where you can taste many delicious cocktails before discovering the real thai cooking made by 100% thai cooks! In the vaulted basement, the restaurant is fitted out in a resolutely zen atmosphere with half-moon seats. A surprising place, warm and cocoonlike, overlooked by an impassive Buddha. Come along for an evening in the "land of smile", benefiting from a journey through the senses of a thousand-flavour gastronomy.

Was here for a Sunday lunch with two friends. We were welcomed by a friendly waiter and seated by the window in a nice quiet corner. We had the soup+main course set menu (you can choose from a limited number of combinations) option for 14€, a real bargain. Delicious soup and good squid for me. Many seafood and meat options are available.

The à la carte menu is much more expensive, with individual dishes well over 20 euros in some cases.

The beer selection could be improved. They had only one Thai beer (Singha Thai), nothing to write home about.

With coffee (bad, but good coffee is very difficult to come by in Belgium) we spent 75 euro for three, a 4 euro tip for the good waiter included. A good address for a lunch near Sablon.

We are from Malaysia, and I worked in a Thai kitchen before so we do have a very high expectation for Thai food. This place totally met our expectations, if you do not compare with the standards in Thailand or South East Asia in general. We had two set lunches, total of 6 single portioned dishes, and a beer, costed less than 50euros. Being in Europe, we were suitably impressed with the level of authenticity combined with just the right local artistic touch in food deco. Worth a visit.

A Thaï restobar that one must visit for lunch when one is walking near the Sablon in Brussels! The four of us ordered each a different entree and each a different main course. We were all very pleased with the dishes they served: over all excellent food and certainly great value for money.

I have already been to this place twice and I would be happy to come back. On both occasions I had a lovely meal. The selection of dishes is quite generous, from mild to spicy, for vegetarians as well as those who eat everything. :-) The restaurant is not big, which I actually prefer as I find smaller restaurants much cosier. The service was excellent!

Lovely Thai food and service! Cousey interior. Try house wine, you won't regret.
