Very good thai food take away or eat in. The food is very well cooked. Decent portions that always fill me. I've been many times and look forward to the next.

Ate here for lunch. Singapore noodle helping was enormous and tasty but not spicy enough for my taste. Everything does seem to be freshly cooked and portions are very generous - my Singapore noodles would easily have fed two hungry people. At €10 it's an expensive lunch for one but would be a bargain for two. A good alternative to... More

I used to work in Dublin and eat their Pad Thai very often. As I moved to Wicklow, hadn't been there in a while. I was in today for a Take Away Pad Thai. It is as good as ever. Really tasty, lots of prawns. I love it. Staff is really helpful, food is ready really quickly, and the portions... More

This is one place that understands what spicy means :) I ordered the wok stir fried beef and asked for spicy like Thai and it turned out beautifully Thai :). Tasty & spicy. Service as good, food is as good as in Thailand. Wish I lived close by so I can try everything on the menu. I will not have... More

I've eaten here on many occasions before and always really enjoyed the food but the last few times that I've been here, it's been getting worse. I had the beef massaman curry this week. The beef was in gigantic chunks in the curry sauce and was really chewy. Because the chunks were so big and chewy, it was hard to... More

As I am a beginner with Tai food I can't really give an expert opinion. The food is tasty and the service quick & polite. Beware if the hot salads though, if you do not stipulate how hot (spicy) you like it you get MAX chilli. This is inedible, they were good enough to resolve this issue.

I left a 5* review this time last year. I visit Dublin on business during July each year and am really disappointed with my 2 kanum experiences this year - last week I ordered delivery as I was staying on the other side of town. I ordered through just eat and added instructions for less oil and no tofu. I... More

We ate here our first night in Dublin and even though it is small, it does a great carry out business. We enjoyed our food and the portions are large.

I have eaten here countless times - to the point where I think the guy knows my order. I'm almost ashamed of it, but I can't help but love this food. It's one of the few places in Ireland that does proper spicy food and it is SO GOOD. The portions are large, the price is fair, and the food... More

Went there for lunch and ordered the pad thai. It was quick (~5 minutes) and they brought it to the table. It is a small place that only fits about 30 people but the people sere very pleasant. My pad thai, which seemed like a lot of food, was 9.95 euros and the still water was 1.95 euros.

Thank Ward D
