“Simple and good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

A nice restaurant for a Thai Dinner, but nothing special. The interior is simple, but I think this is not the criteria. The price is reasonable, neither expensive nor cheap. Food quality is ok, my wife and I had some positive some negative experiences: My wife had as starter Dimsum and this was not impressive, looked and tasted not like the really good ones or home made. We had one main dish prepared from a "spice level" as we wanted it, and the other one was not spicy. My wife ordered "just a bit spicy but not a lot" and received something that was really hot. I personally like really spicy food and have to say this was definitely not the right level for somebody in Europe ordering "just a bit" - maybe from a original Thai view this was ok, but in a European restaurant this was too much. So, big advice: if you don't like it spicy be really careful, maybe do not order anything spicy in general.
Taste was good - both dishes even the hot one were really good and freshly prepared, so positive for the main course.
Summary: Be careful when you don't like really spicy food. We'll come back - this is a nice restaurant for some solid Thai food.

“Authentic Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Small (approximately 10 tables) restaurant with a small staff that works hard.
The food is very good, and gives the filling of Thai. It is less western then other Far East restaurants.
The restaurant decoration is simple, and prices are reasonable.
No intimate corners for business meetings.
Recommended.

“Nice Thai in … Zaventem of all places”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Ok, the airport gives Z'tem an international touch, but still you would not expect to find a good Thai restaurant there. Good, as in you go there for the food. The interior is low budget, thrown together, but the food is excellent and service is friendly. The spice level has been adapted to Belgian pain tresholds but it still is tasty. See it as a casual family, friends, business place.

Went there with some friends for lunch.
The food's tasty and authentic, the service silent but efficient, the place nice and cosy.
The prices were fair.
