Love the atmosphere, lovely Thai food cooked by the owner who’s the chef. Good home cooking with fresh ingredients and you bring your own alcoholic drinks which is a plus plus for a great night with great food and it doesn’t break your bank

Three of us who were working in Margate were recommended to come here and we were pleased we did. As soon as we stepped in the door we were warmly welcomed by staff and customers (it was hard to know who was who).

It’s a tiny place, and very homely, with the wife and co-owner doing the cooking, which is absolutely delicious. For mains you choose whether you want tofu, chicken or beef, then whether you want it in a curry or stir-fried or with noodles, mild, medium or hot, and then you choose the sort of rice you want. I had a medium chicken Thai Green Curry with jasmine rice and enjoyed every mouthful.

There’s no alcohol served on the premises but it’s free corkage if you take your own.

We visited from Essex on the reviews. Restaurant empty on arrival on Saturday lunch. Checked menu which seemed to say 7.95 for main plus rice. Sadly this only applies Tues to Fri so cost over 12 per meal. We were not upset about food upset about pricing. Plus beware of the door. Took 2 plasters to stop my fingers bleeding lol

This restaurant is like a good wine it ages beautifully. We went there with a friend and the meal was delightful. Service impeccable and the cooking sublime. Everything is cooked to order so you have to wait but what's the hurry anyway? The relaxed pace makes for an excellent evening and as it isn't licensed you can drink your own booze to your heart's content! We had a selection of starters prawn sesame toasts (wonderful!) vegetable dim sum and vegetable spring rolls. Mains were pad thai and a wonderful king prawn green curry. The prices were very reasonable as always. Here's to the next time!
