Small, compact, but very welcoming. A bit basic, no alcohol license so take your own. Food is cooked to order very fresh and fantastic flavour! Staff very welcoming and helpful. Will definitely come back soon!

Lovely thai food, cheap and tasty. Not too much choice which is good, so the indecisive ones don't take too long! You can bring your own booze so that is a real money saver. Basic decor and could probably use more staff especially when busy...More
