Very good value, nice to just pop in well after hours and still get something cheap and delicious. Proprietor's husband a friendly chap, said he has a couple of economics degrees and he likes to talk about cricket though we weren't much help there.

Had lunch her with some mates a few weeks' back. We ordered various items - the vegetarian spring rolls (a little greasy), and pad thai was too sweet and cloying. Reasonable prices and cheap cocktails makes this a viable night out with mates place but we found it just OK.

Ordered a bottle of Prosecco which was quite bad in taste. The soup was great there but the dish I ordered tasted nothing. But the personnel was friendly and nice, also the cheap cocktails (3.9 Euro) were great, tried 3 of them and all were good.

Went here with a friend today, and was pleasantly surprised. The waiter was very nice, and spoke English and German. I ordered pad woonsen with beef. While the beef was a bit over cooked for my taste, my request for really spicy was accommodated! My meal also came with a bowl of chicken curry soup... Not the normal bowl with... More

Very delicious Thai restaurant, run by an Indian family. Friendly, helpful service and reasonably good cocktails. We are vegetarian and there was lots of choice. There is a good chef here - the spices were perfect. Recommend.

We chanced upon this restaurant looking for a nice Thai meal. We regret ever having set eyes upon it. To begin with the waitress who served us made it quite clear that she would rather be elsewhere, she couldn't have been more disinterested if she tried. We ordered the Lamb with Mango sauce and the Duck with Tamarind sauce. The... More

We thought it was a thai restaurant, because it Said so on the sign. But we were very dissapointed, no body could speak thai, not even a smile and friendly welcome like other thai places. Don't order Coconut soup/ Tom kha gai- horrible. Don't order curry massaman- horrible, the Meat was filled with greasy fat, and the taste was not... More

Nice ambience place with great value Thai food and great cheap cocktails. They have happy hour all the time so cocktails are 3.90. Service is a bit sluggish some times.

My friend and I loved this place. All the food we had was really fresh and delicious, and the servings were big. We were served by the husband of the owner, who was charming and chatted with us throughout the evening. Highly recommended.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
