I hunted down this restaurant for 'authentic Thai' because I looove Thai food. The food was delicious, but the service, ambiance and the fact I caught a fever after leaving because I was freezing the whole time I was in there put me off! I do feel it's over priced as well, I don't mind paying more for good food but I don't know what I was paying for here.. Rude service in a run down basement? The food wasn't good enough to make up for everything else. :( A real shame. 


The venue of an outstanding evening with myself and my boxing camp. Recommended to us by a local Thai business for a night out. We had a fantastic evening with top notch food and entertainment in the form of karaoke. All complete with the added bonus of a bill that was more than modest. The Thai staples were as good if not same as in Siam. It's obviously an adventurous menu at a low price so do expect all the ingredients of a flavourful home cooked meal than a cordon bleu supplied restaurant. And boy does it have some flavour. It really is making the best out of whats available which is what the Thai's do best. *Steamed prawns with vimecelli - star dish! The reviews are well deserved and will be hard to top for the genuine thai enthusiast. We'll be back again!


Some would say this is the best Thai food you can get in London, if not anywhere outside Thailand. I've spent a good few months in Thailand and I'd probably say this is possibly the best Thai food I've had anywhere.

This restaurant is definitely a phenomenon, one of my favourite places to eat but you have to be adventurous if you're not used to mad Asian cuisine. The raw crab salad is sensational, the spicy fish dishes have an amazing depth of hot, sweet, citrus and lime flavours all in one. It is remarkable. Personally I find the price extremely reasonable by London standards and compared to other specialist restaurants it is very cheap. Outstanding!


I lived in Thailand for many years and I will say the food and decor takes me right back there. The food was very tasty and very real but my only complaint is that I feel the price is too high.


Did not eat here as the staff could not guarantee any food would be vegetarian. Terrible
