The food is pretty good but no flexible in menu. No Thai staff who can speak Thai language. Any way I give Overall 4 star!!

Been to this restaurant many times. Very tasty, properly spiced Thai food. Small restaurant, so need to book at busy times.

This Thai restaurant located in rue des deux portes is one of the most authentic in its area. It is mostly patronised by locals, who usually see a lot of value in IT. Booking here is essential, even during the week.

What a treat to find excellent Thai. Spicy, tangy, and full of flavor. Make a reservation, especially if you want outdoor seating. Nice ambience. Red curry was amazing!

We stopped for a lunch and enjoyed very nice Tai food. Please try the shrimp soup! Is little spicy, but you will love it! The seafood plate with basil and shallots is also very nice.

Great little restaurant, good service, excellent food and a real authentic feel to it. Highly recommend the green and red curries and the duck is cooked beautifully in all their dishes. Book to avoid disappointment as it fills really quickly, but you can order to take away too and it's cooked incredibly quickly. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in... More

Superb food. A good blend of herbs and spices, I asked the waitress to choose for me and her selection was spot on. I will be going again, but you need to book, it gets busy!

Spotted down an alley off the Place du Marche, I went here with business colleagues. The menu is shorter than in most Thai/Asian restaurants, but every dish we chose was excellent. I had Thom Kha Gai and then Prawn green Thai curry, and cannot praise them enough. Service is quick and friendly although dishes do arrive as they come off... More

Cute place. Decent food. Nice people. We were there on a cold day and had a really excellent chicken soup. The wine selections were also good. They paired very nicely with the Thai food. I'm a big fan of duck. However I did not enjoy the duck dish as much as I enjoyed The truly excellent beef panang. The restaurant... More

I went to this restaurant after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It didn't disappoint me. The menu was rather limited but it didn't bother me. The food was excellent. You can have a two course meal for € 18,80 or a three course meal for €24. Prices are doable! As we seldom eat desserts, we took a two course meal,... More
