Regular customer at this restaurant. Food is always amazing. I love to stand there and watching them cooking that amazing food. Staff are helpful. The only down side is finding a space to park your car.

Excellent and super fast service that makes people queue outside even in the rain or the cold as they know it won't take long. It's always buzzing but the food comes out freshly made in no time. And the quality of food makes you think...More

This place is so yummy. Had beautiful takeaway. It was so packed when I ordered but they managed to have the food ready so quick. Looks can be deceiving but you can’t ignore a restaurant full of happy customers eating . Highly recommend

The staff were friendly. Food was served relativity quickly and still hot. The food tasted very nice. We had asked for extra spicy, which it did not seem to be, but still tasted great. Good value for money!

Trekked all the way from east London to try this place out. Heard so much about it. Walked in, it was ram packed for a Sunday evening, bare in mind it's quite small. Waited a few minutes to be seated, as they don't take reservations....More

i think this is the best thai food we've had in London in the last 4 years of living here. Better than any other high end thai restaurants as well, so cheap, so tasty and so good. The only complaint which I'm able to get...More
