Came in for dinner and was stunned at how good it actually is because it looks like a basic cafe from the outside. The food is 2nd to none. Will be back soon.

Had the black pepper squid and tom yum soup with 2 rice. They were both very good and the tom yum soup was spot on (we're big fan of Thai food), although they are quite on the pricey side (we spent about NZD35).

This is our favourite Restaurant in Palmy. My girls love it. Cheap and cheerful. Always such a lovely service and the food is excellent. We don't go anywhere else for Thai.
