We have got takeaway and eaten in. Environment is a bit poky, not a place to hang around. Take away was good, less oily and better quality than other local Thai I have had.

This little suburban Thai restaurant serves lovely fresh food at a great price. Staff are very welcoming. The place is small and also does a good trade in take away. The food is freshly cooked and can recommend the tom yum noodles. They do a couple of dishes with cocktail frankfurts which we haven't tried but sound a bit odd. Definitely worth a visit.

It was on the recommendation from an acquaintance of my wifes that we dined at the Now or Never cafe.
The corner of Stuart Road and Dulwich Ave has been long associated with good food and atmosphere.
With the background of the single fronted cottages, picket fences and pleasant aspects that define Dulwich the location of this Cafe is misleading.
Upon entering I was in double take mode as the laminex tables, wall paper and the jam jar light fittings made me think I had been transported to an inner suburb of Melbourne.
The diner was spotlessly clean. People sat at different tables reading papers...waiting.

We grabbed the table in the window to enjoy the street scape and to adjust the eyes for the bigger picture of the Thai kitchen in action. You can see into the kitchen via the passage between the counter. All appeared spotless and the staff eager to produce.
Other folk came in and collected take-away orders, others looked in through the window, analysing the newcomer.

We ordered the spring rolls ( 'you can tell a great deal from the spring rolls' says Leoni ). Leoni's comment - spring rolls a little small for the price, should have been 4 for $8.00
A Green Chicken curry and a stir fry Cashew Chicken with rice for 2 was ordered.
More people came into collect take-aways in addition to a huge rabbit, an elfin, a council representative and a policeman.
Easter bunny gave out eggs to all present whilst the policeman talked about 'Neighbourhood Watch'...aah Dulwich.

The food was piping hot and the servings generous .
The choice was a good combination for us and the rice was plentiful for the meal.
Both of us were pleased with the quality and freshness of the food.

The only disappointment for us being wine drinkers (with food :-)) was that the cafe was not licensed and did not permit BYO due to the lack of a liquor license. A large bottle of Sparkling San Pellegrino had to suffice. The staff did say that they were aiming for a license in the near future.

All in all a good experience in a cafe that should do well with locals and visitors.
