“The Food Here Is Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

We came here based on TA reviews twice in 2 days and tried a third time another day but the restaurant was full. The food here is awesome and totally good value. The curries are some of the best you will get in thailand. The staff are very friendly and the place has a friendly atmos as you almost bump elbows with your felllow diners. Plus for us it was great they can accommodate babies with high chairs even when they are busy....and most of the time they are.

“Richly deserving of the top spot in Hua Hin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Visited this on the recommendation of TripAdvisor - were squeezed in by the owner putting an extra table on the pavement. Probably the very best Thai food we've eaten in Thailand ever. Fast and friendly service - seated on long rows of tables - with outstanding food.

We ordered more food than you could shake a stick at and the bill came to just 480B with drinks! Amazing value!

You may have to queue for a while on the street to get a table at busy times but it's worth it!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

We had to eat here as it's the most highly recommended restaurant in Hua Hin on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed .The food was really good, richly flavoured and the cook really takes pride in her cooking which shows in the presentation of the dishes. The menu was extensive and it's a wonder that so many delightful dishes could come out of the tiny kitchen in this tiny restuarant. We would had gone back for another meal if we had more time in Hua Hin.

“Visited twice and enjoyed both times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Visited based on trip advisor reviews .My partner is vegetarian we were pleased to find that there is a separate section of the menu that caters specifically for vegetarians .

On both visits we were served fresh tasty Thai dishes. Between us we tried a range of starters , stir fry's and curries and enjoyed them all. My favourite dish was chicken with ginger, a little spicy but full of flavour.

We visited early in the evening , around 6 pm and had no trouble getting a table . Service was good . There is a reasonable range of drinks and both food and drinks are inexpensive.

“Great meal and great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Small and as others have said crowded but it all adds to the atmosphere.
The food was tasty - unbelieveably cheap,
Large portions and beware of the Chilli hotness here.
