“Great place!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

Authentic, cheap and uber-tasty Thai food. Did not bother with their western cuisine but their thai food was to die for. Tom Yum Gai soup, the curries, the tiger prawns. De-li-ci-ous! Their pricing is ridiculous in the good sense. Soup for 90 baht, a pint of Chang for 100, 3-4 tiger prawns for 320 baht - excellent!

Ate here for lunch and dinner for a few days, couldn't be happier.

Highly recommended!

“Top quality and more”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Say no more about this place food is second to non so so friendly and it's not one of those place they drag you in ! the food and hospitality is all they need and they have it all .
And is half the price you pay for the same quality , no much better quality ! of these big bold places lit up in neon lights.
It's a must if your in the area

“Best All Rounder In Town By Miles”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Very surprised this not already on the site. Huge variety of excellent fresh Thai food plus some western meals which are great for kids. You know it's cooked to order as your dish is spiced exactly how you ask for it every time. Expats and locals all highly recommend and it's busy most nights for good reason. Good value, friendly staff and great food mean the staff often greeting returning diners. A great first choice for eating outside hotel when you aren't sure where to go and you will go back for more.

“Very good food”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Best thai food we had in Thailand. Cheap food. Be aware of small portions; we recommend men to have both starter and main dish.
