The place sounded promising enough but the food is horrible. My pad thai noodles were covered in a sweet slime, all I could taste was sugar and chilli. Will definitely don't come back. Go to Busaba instead if you want decent food. Not too far.

Heard about it from a friend and went for lunch. I absolutely loved Thai green curry it is aromatic and spicy just the way I like it. But there is barely any chicken it although I enjoyed the vegetables. The service was quick.

Surly staff, foodstuff all over the eating counters and the most disgusting pad thai - £7.50 for overcooked noodles in a vile sickly sweet sauce with a couple of limp vegetables. Inedible. Doesn't even deserve one star.

Good here is good. Nice service friendly staff but defiantly cook the food fresh daily. In the week afternoons the queue gets a a bit hectic but the staff are quite quick to deal with it. Great Thai try the panang beef and brown rice....More

Lady on counter clearly found it too much effort to serve me. There was only one other customer in queue! Had pad Thai noodles which were awful. Totally coated in sugar and what tasted like sweet chilli sauce. Anyone can make better noodles at home....More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
