The restaurant was close to our motel (Merrivale Manor), and the food was absolutely delicious. We ordered Pad See Ew, Pad Thai and Chicken Fried Rice. Lovely authentic flavours, not overdosed with palm sugar, as seems to be how a lot of restaurants treat their noodle dishes in Western countries. Highly recommended.

I am actually quite surprised by the comments below as a friend of mine who just came back from Thailand said that the food tasted exactly the same as over there. Anyway, I haven't been myself so I can't judge. We went on a girls night and the BYO was pretty helpful. A friend of ours who wasn't drinking brought a can of energy drink and couldn't keep it though (to be aware of).
Food arrived quickly so obviously not fresh but to be honest it tasted delicious so didn't really matter. It is quite noisy there as it is quite a tiny place so you might not want to go there for a date.

We went here for a takeaway. We ordered a pad thai and red curry. From ordering it, the food was ready in around 3 minutes which was alarmingly fast and got the alarm bells ringing. Unsurprisingly it was plainly clear that the food was not fresh and had been reheated. Awful, no flavour and pretty revolting, will never be going there again - go to thai container or Keo Thai - they are much better.

On a busy Saturday night we were fortunate to score a table here. The entrees were delicious and authentic as were the mains.
Only criticism were the noise levels which made it difficult to hear as the restaurant was full.

Staff were friendly and quick. BYO. Meals were tasty, but not authentic. I can't fault the staff, nice atmosphere. They accommodated my extra chillies :)
