Unfortunately I cannot rate it with a ZERO!! It is catastrophic!! You arrive at the 3rd floor and you have a huge room with 100 people's eating next to each other, A LOT of noise and a dramatic service! Prices are quite high and the quality of the food is very poor!! Ordered a started, receive it after the main... More

Wanted some Thai and found this on TA and it is ranked #35 in Shinjuku, so we had to try it. Kinda tough to find, but we found it. Had to wait a short while as not too many people in front of us. They sat us down in the main area at a worn down heavy wood table that... More

While the food is based on authentic cuisine, it's adjusted to Japanese tastes. This is a great place for beginners to get a taste for Thai food. It draws a significant crowd at night.

Really delicious Thai food (had Basil Chicken & Panang Curry) with reasonable prices for approx. 1400¥ each. So didn't understand the price rating $$$ on Tripadvisor...we went twice! Always very crowded so service was a bit stressed - but friendly. Easy to find in 3F.

After a warm welcome, we were given a table right away and it took a while before our drinks order was taken. The waiter got one order wrong and the other... More
