Brought to you by a Belgian couple ! And more: this is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in town. I give you one example: the chicken in the red curry (my favorite) is backed and glazed on a barbecue before it is served. It is rather spicy, so inform yourself for the not spicy dishes, even if...

Great looking restaurant with upstairs lounge chairs for when you have to wait for your table. It is a popular restaurant that serves delicious Thai food. I had the green curry with chicken. On the menu it said "2 peppers" as in hot and hot it was but still very tasty.
