“Disappointing”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

It wasn't Thai: no lemongrass, no kaffir lime leaves and no galangal! The Tom Kha was way too coconuty, the pad thai was hard and chewy. The papaya salad was ok, but that one is really hard to get wrong!
The drinks selection did not contain any lemongrass drink, no drinks with coconut milk, ...
The place is essentially someone's front yard, illkempt and distasteful. It is on the highway.
Definitely not worth the USD 50 in Kampala (even Yujo was cheaper!)

“Great Thai food in Entebbe”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We “often” go to this restaurant when, for a reason or another, we happen to be in Entebbe and be hungry. Coming from Kampala, the restaurant on the left of the main road, right next to the new mall/Nakumatt, on the corner of the road that leads to the botanical garden and to the zoo. The garden is quiet, and the food is delicious. Papaya salad was an amazing discovery for me. Pricy though for Kampala standards.

“Great”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Stumbled on this place while in Entebbe. A bit pricey but the food was great. Pad thai with lots of garlic was a good call. The outdoor seating made the experience. I highly recommend.

“The only thai food in town”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

In spite of the location and facilities, this restaurant is the only one who serves traditional thai food. It is actually a value for money restaurant!

“Thai Restaurant now in Entebbe”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Unbelievably delicious Thai food in Entebbe...and very quick service. Relocated from Kampala. Perfect for dine-in or take-out meal before or after airport or while staying in Entebbe. Now located on corner of main Entebbe Highway and Nambi road...where you turn off to go to the Botanical Gardens. Great place to buy a picnic to consume while at the gardens!
