Arrived at 10pm with no booking. Staff received us in friendly helpful manor. Luckily we got a table.
Had a fantastic meal. Food was served by great staff, and they explained the menu. The food fresh and a tasted beautiful.
Although hot, means hot, so be careful.
It was all so good, we came back the following night.
Overall really fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked, and very good value too.

I had eaten here previously and found the food to be average and not great. I have since changed my opinion. I ate here twice recently and in my opinion it has far surpassed any other Asian food establishment around. The food it really really good way over anything I have had else where in recent times. I had different dishes both times I was here (Pad Thai/Chicken Cashew) and both were amazing. I also love Singha Beer and it always goes down smooth. I definitely will return

Very accomodation staff as we arrived with just an hour before close but even on a Monday night there was a good crowd. The menu was very appealing so we tried a number of starters, Panda chicken, vegetable dumplings, fish cakes (my favorite) alongside some pad mee noodles, rice and a thai veg curry. Everything was very flavorsome, however i did find the noodles quite oily. The restaraunt itself is nicely decorated and not like the usual generic Asian Street food restaraunt with ice cream machines in the corner. Our meal for 2 was less than €30 which was excellent value for the taste, quality and portion sizes.

My mothe, my sister and I had lunch here today. It was delicious! We took advantage of their special offer of a main course +free gelato for €10. All three of us ordered something different and all of us tried each of rhe dishes and loved all three. It was bursting with flavour and the vegetables were so fresh and perfectly cooked with a perfect amount of bite. Portion size was perfect fantastic value for money. The beautiful creamy smooth gelato was a very welcome bonus! The service was quick and efficient. And friendly! 10/10 all round. Will definitely be back and recommending to friends and family!

I have a very picky son. He has an equally picky friend. Neither have ever tried Thai before, and they were supremely sceptical/scared to try it. HOWEVER. They both devoured everything they ordered, including starters. The rest of the table was equally delighted with everything this little gem had to offer. Love the Tiger beer too!
