Really nice restaurant with really good Thai food, authentic tasting and good selection on the menu. The service was a bit slow otherwise would have scored a 5. Don't let this put you off though as I would definitely eat here again. Top notch food!!!

I love the curry at this place and come here regularly either solo, with my husband or with friends and family. It's very affordable too, three courses cost approximately 25 euro. The location on the canals gives great views. Staff is friendly. Really great place!
