Good food but we waited for about 30 mins for two simple dishes. My parter is diabetic so we were getting a bit nervous. We weren't the only ones waiting for ages either. Seem understaffed and the waitresses were under pressure. Go somewhere else if you are really hungry!

The food was good but we order a green curry and got a yellow one. when we told the waitress she told us that we ordered a yellow one and didn t even apologized. We ate it, it was good but not what we ordered.
There is quite a lot of vegetarian options.
The food took about 30 minutes to come. It s kind of cheap for this street.

The menu is a simple mixed western and Thai. This is a very small place with half a dozen tables. We placed our order and heard the man (who we thought was the owner) talk quite roughly to the waitress about it. Later we discovered that he was helping out the owner (but didn't actually do or know much). The service was very slow, food is freshly cooked but quite bland by Thai standards, probably cooked for a western palate. Prices were standard for the dish. Whilst having our meal 2 groups walked in then out again (10 people) because of lack of available tables as one was bring used by this man and the other by staff. Not a place I would visit again.

I stopped off here in an unplanned visit and without any expectations - the place is small with just a few tables on the main street. I enjoyed a really tasty curry and a few drinks. I would definitely visit again as the food was delicious.
