“One of the standout places to eat in Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We stumbled across this place while walking the night street markets and what a find. The entrees of Fish cakes and Spring rolls were outstanding, as was the Massaman curry and the chilli chicken. Even the kids ate everything on their plates.....give it a try, and ignore the negative dills who are never happy with anything. One of them even cries that they don't speak perfect English....I bet Charlies English is better than your Thai. It is Thaland afterall....not America fool.

“Great cheap food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

We stayed at the Medio de Pai across the road so this was very convenient but they also had great tasty food at good prices. We had more than a few plates of the tempura vegetables over the 3 days we stayed there!

“Great flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Right across from our hotel. The food is indeed great if you prefer Thai food. Wish had time to take one cooking class with Lek! Recommend Phad Thai shrimp, mussaman curry. The rest are all good I believe.
