Big meals, low price, tasty, very authentic. A very good lunch stop and it's open from 11am. Most places in the city are 11:30 on.

Been there in both occasions for the same dish coz I’ve missed it so much. As advertised. CRISPY. Really crispy delicious chicken with fried rice. (Though it was slightly saltier in my 2nd visit) Must Try!! (Non spicy dish)

I have been here often over the last few years and have never been disappointed. I usually get the pad thai or thai basil chilli. Cheap prices and take away available.
