Wow - we were told about this place by someone at our hotel. The space is a bit tight, but the food was seriously amazing. The food was fresh and well-prepared, with just the perfect amount of spice. Would highly recommend!

Had to wait till it opened at 5 pm, but it's worth the wait! After I ordered the food, it came within 10 minutes and totally met my expectation! I ordered Gaprow Lad Kao with pork and spicy level 6. It came with two fried eggs crispy on the outside and little running in the inside. Perfect Asian way of... More

Went with a client. The food was outstanding. It's a small place, and I wonder how the fire marshal doesn't shut them down at lunch time. I don't know what the max occupancy is, but as close together as the tables are, I have to believe they're over it, no matter what it is. Maybe the Thai culture is more... More

Maybe my taste buds were off that day, but the mint beef salad I had was dreadful. Everything was covered with a chili sauce that I found distasteful. It was neither sweet nor sour....just unpleasant. The beef looked suspect so I only had a piece or two. The tomatoes were squishy, well past their "Use by ....." date. The service... More

Nicky's was recommended by locals and an easy walk from the hotel. Food was attractive and delicious. Service very attentive despite the large party seated nearby. Reservations recommended during peak times.

Salmon curry, sticky rice, duck curry, Singha and local beers, excellent service, great Thai decor and packed house with locals. Couldn't be better, and reasonably priced, not too noisy.
