We went to this place after an afternoon of shopping - no booking but early enough that a table was free. The food was fantastic!! Green curry & fried fish with chilli - both our thai staples so we could compare - amazing vs what we have had back home.
Ensure you book - there is only about 6 tables and a few groups were turned away as all were full.

The food here is delicious, some of the best Thai I've ever eaten. We had 4 dishes and drinks for around $30-40. Highlights were the fried fish and morning glory. The staff were wonderful, even helping to look after my 18 month old so that we could enjoy our meal. They do get busy though - we got there at 6pm and we're seated immediately, but by 7.30 all the tables were full. A sign of a popular restaurant! Would definitely eat here again.

This restaurant took me by surprise. The entrance looked a little dodgy given the dingy lighting. However, the food quality, service quality and ambience inside the restaurant was very good. We particularly enjoyed the deep fried shrimp in tamarind sauce, larb moo, chicken wrapped in pandan leaves. The owner of the restaurant was particulary friendly and forthcoming. Great choice if you want good quality food at a relatively affordable price.

We went here on our first night based on reviews and I was really looking forward to great Thai food. I don't eat much Thai so it was a leap of faith. After my visit I didn't eat any more Thai for the two weeks I was there. I don't know anything about Thai food so maybe it was traditionally amazing, but my Pad Thai noodles were so chewy I was choking on it ... I couldn't get it down. The staff were so so lovely though so I don't want people to not go there ... if that's how it is, then that's how it is. Maybe I just had a bad batch or I just don't like traditional Thai food.

Dear 83vmarie,

we are very sorry to read your review on Tripadvisor. Especially because apparently we have scared you off from any Thai food for the rest of your holiday, which is really a shame. We always ask our customers if anything is not ok with their food, even just for reasons of taste and we are always ready to change the dish... we are sorry that we were not given this opportunity with you. We thank you for your positive note to our service and your invitation to people to come to see us... nevertheless a 2 star rating will have an influence in our ranking and our business in the next weeks!
Regarding Padthai I would like to take this occasion to stress that we prepare the padthai sauce by ourselves daily, it is not an industrial supermarket sauce. We cook it every afternoon starting from onions, tamarind, soy sauce etc... the noodles we use are fresh rice noodles that as such are a bit sticky as it the sauce... it is a characteristic of the dish..
We invite you to take the risk again, maybe in your next visits to Thailand, to try again Thai food, even in another restaurant in another town, maybe choose something else! :-)

Regards
