“Good food, atmosphere in the heart Seoul”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

We ordered entrees, mains and drinks for just short of 70k won which was quite reasonable.

The papaya salad was authentic, pad thai used tamarind sauce which made it yummy and vegetarian green curry had lots of vegetables.

The service was terrific with the staff constantly refilling water etc. they also spoke good English.

We ate dinner early just before 7. When we went to leave there were a dozen people waiting for tables - obviously this place is popular! So would recommend to make a booking if you're coming at 7pm or later.

“Very nice Thai”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

The Thai restaurant is very nicely decorated. The waiters are very attentive, filling up your glass all the time. The food is of high quality and cooked very well. The portion sizes are good, in fact too good so had to bring half home with me. English menu which is handy.

“Surprisingly High Class”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

The somewhat lackluster exterior beguilles a solid four-star restaurant in Wang Thai. Authentic Southeast Asian decore complements excellent, attentive service and delicious food. I suggest the Pad Thai and a cool Chang or Singha beer to wash it down.

“In the top 3 best Thai restaurants in Seoul”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The food was good along with the portions. Only problem was the service, we have to flagged them down for refills but besides that, it was good.
