This little restaurant is near the Bayswater hotel and trakn station. It is BYO.
We ordered plain rice, battered tofu in satay sauce, stirfry vegies with cashews and some sort of fish pieces in a tasty sauce.
We do not like spicy hot food, so asked for mild. I was told the satay sauce was mild, it wasn't. The tofu was the firm kind fried in a thin batter. Normally at other Thai places it comes in tempura batter, much tastier. The stirfry vegies came in large chunks and mostly raw, very disappointing and lazy cooking really. I had no knife, so had to use my spoon and fork to cut vegies into bite size pieces.
The fish dish was good apparently.
From what we saw, booking is recommended.

Three of us went here Saturday night for a birthday dinner due to a recommendation.

The restaurant is quite small and and appears cluttered, with tables very close together, meaning that you need to be careful when sliding your chair back.

The service was slow and poor, with some tables seemingly served before others even though they arrived later. There was an overly long wait between ordering our meals (entrees and mains) and their arrival. Attracting the attention of the waitresses was quite difficult as they took no time to look around the room to see if any assistance was required.

The food was excellent, as good as we've had in Thailand and there were no complaints there.

I would happily recommend this restaurant except for the service we had. If you do decide to go, I suggest you choose a quieter time to go.

Across the road from the railway station in a set of non descript drab suburban shops this little gem is a joy.
Traditionally themed decor at this BYO restaurant with an easy to read comprehensive menu with all of you favorite Thai dishes, friendly service and a reasonable cost.

Our children took us here for dinner and we did not know what to expect. The place is nothing flash but has a cosy feel of authenticity about it. Very friendly and efficient waitresses. We ordered four different dishes which were all very delicious and not like your every day Thai. I can't say which was my favourite but the Pad Thai was pretty exceptional! We will come back for sure ...
