This is a true family restaurant where every familily members are in the business from children to grandpa. The food and drinks have wide range of choice, quility was good. The size of the portions were ok. They were extra kind with children.

We frequented this place in 2015 and loved it so much that we came back again in 2016. Rated very highly and certainly deserves to be #1. Don't pass up this Gem or you will be sorry!

We ate here 3 times - Aom, Lek and Poom were very welcoming and took time to chat even when they were very busy. They were pleased to discuss how their dishes are prepared and recommended more chilli/garlic etc or less to suit exactly our tastesand the style of the dishes. Good food, good value, nice atmosphere and really lovely... More

So it doesn't look much but make no mistake, this is great Thai cooking. The staff are welcoming and helpful. Get there early (before 7pm) or you won't get a table. Green curry and pad thai are to die for.

Poom's was just around the corner from our hotel and we ended up coming here 5 days in a row. It ticked all the boxes for us: simple Thai food with good depth of flavor, friendly, relaxed, and totally unpretentious atmosphere, and really affordable prices. Aom does the front of house while her husband cooks; her son Poom helps out... More

A rainy day and into a rainy evening so not many people out and about. We arrived at 9 pm and were warmly welcomed. The food was fantastic. Chicken and pork satay, curry, cashew chicken, squid chili etc. very nice. And....to top it off a free ride home!!! How great is that??!!
