The food is really tasty and spicy, nice fresh thai food in Helsinki. The service was really slow on a Friday night so don't go for the starters if you are in a hurry!

Found this place when going to book a dinner table for a Finnish restaurant nearby. We were very impressed by the value of the weekday lunch menu - the choice was limited but covered meat eaters and vegetarians and the food came quickly and was really delicious. As so often with Thai restaurants the service was extremely pleasant even though the place was absolutely packed. A good choice for a budget lunch in a rather expensive city.

They have two restaurants in Helsinki.
Smaller one (about 20 seats) is located at Kamppi, basement level, where bus terminal is and most of restaurants too.
Bigger restaurant (almost 100 seats) is at Yrjönkatu and there you have menu of over 100 different items, all of them delicious and authentic tasting with all hotness what you can image.
What ever I have choose, none of them has not been disappointment.

Hint! You need make reservation to both places, if you want to eat at some specific time.. Both places are that popular!

I would call it the best Thai restaurant in Helsinki, where spicy really means spicy and hot really means hot. All of the dishes that we have tasted so far have been very delicious and we have not been disappointed. We have tried meet, chicken and tofu dishes and all of them were just superb.

A great place to eat if you are in the Kamppi Shopping Centre. However, they have another similarly named restaurant on the address of Yrjönkatu 15 (not too far from Kamppi) as well. You will find much nicer and intimate atmosphere and even more authentic (and better) food there... They have completely different and bigger menu as well. This one's a good option if you are willing to eat inside a mall, otherwise go to Yrjönkatu!
