This is our "go to" place for take away. Good flavors, no fuss. Never disappointed. Personal favourites are Tom Yum soup ad the cashew nut ad chilli paste stir fry. Yum!

Great little cafe that serves excellent Thai food. Food is cooked in an 'open' kitchen in front of you and as lovers of Thai food - this is excellent. Also caters for take-aways.More
