Amazing food. Multiple options for vegetarians too. Small dining space but worth going for the food.

You can watch the chef prepare your dinner and the food is exquisite. It is a bring your own cafe and you can buy your drinks from the off licence across the road. Basic setting but worth a visit as the food is so good

This is some of the best Thai food I've tasted outside of Thailand . The Chef cares about your experience and there is an attention to detail that shines in this eatery, considering that you're not paying gastronomic prices.

Uncomplicated setting, all food cooked fresh to order with the chef just behind the counter. Can choose to have each meal mild, medium or hot. Very reasonable prices, no alcohol is sold in the restaurant but think you can BYO. Will definitely be going back!
