Went there whilst on holiday. I ordered the prawn red curry which was delicious and the flower tea which was unusual and blue but still tasty. The waitresses were friendly and didn't feel like they rushed you like some other places. Authentic atmosphere and comprehensive...More

My (Thai) wife and I ate here as it was round the corner from our hotel (it's also very handy for the railway station). She was very pleased with her som tam (spicy green papaya salad), said it was authentically Thai in taste but particularly...More
