Love heading to 209 for a bite to eat. The food is great, it is BYO which makes it a really reasonable night out. Joy who owns the restaurant makes your experience as she is really welcoming, great fun and has some brilliant chat. Highly highly recommend a visit.

This was one of the best dinners out I've had in london! Tucked away, this small restaurant is packed full of atmosphere, largely helped by the byob rule, the outgoing personality of Joy, and the truly home cooked food with great prices! Could not recommend it enough if you're looking for an evening of laughter, prawn satay and green curry... More

Set amongst the local shops in Fulham, this small BYO restaurant is all about the famous host - Joy. She goes out of her way to accommodate her guests and make sure everyone has a colourful and fun night out. The food was good, the price ok, the setting was well... a small restaurant with old tables. But it is... More

Thai food - BYO (cheap corkage) run by Joy and Daughter with food cooked by Joy's husband. Joy loves her customers and will want to talk to you more than take your order. She'll also tell you what to eat, she knows what's good and what you will like. You will especially like the final bill..

Good home made Thai food and Joy, the owner, is a barrel of laughs!!!! A lot of locals frequent this place and you can see why. B.Y.O alcohol which is cool (£2.20 corkage). Love coming here!

Great atmosphere and very friendly service from Joy, complete with hearts and kisses on the bill. The set menu was tasty but the portions were on the small side. Would definitely visit again if we were in the area but would order more.

Cracking place. Great food; reasonable prices; BYOB; (last but not least) JOY. Legendary host, she spices up the dining experience. Be aware that this spice may not be to everyone's taste, but if you would like what feels like a more authentic Thai experience, give it a try! Just don't mess with Joy...

This place is great! Fantastic thai food, good prices and good portions. But the best part of our evening was the owner! Joy is hilarious and will make this visit an experience, not just a dinner!
