Very good & fresh Thai & Vietnamese food. Although all chefs are not Thai, you can find Thai taste on Thai dishes, except all Thai spicy salads that I think it's too sweet for Thai people like me. The owner and staff are always freindly. Nice atmosphere with fast service. Recommended it!

4 cooks in an open cuisine sustain a full restaurant: everything is fresh, all dishes with meat, unless special order. Yes, go!

I have been here dozens of times already and never disappointed, they have the best thai-viet food I know. Not too expensive and always really fast.

This is an Asian restaurant with a half open kitchen. The food is good as the service. The price is correct and the interior is nice. Good for lunch and dinner. Finding a parking spot in a hassle.

We really liked the food. Unlike other restaunrats in Brussels which offer international cuisine, this also offers atmosphere in tune with the food. It is a very good choice if you are in the area.

This fusion Thai-Vietnamese restaurant offers and interesting lunch deal (around 10,50). The service is very fast and the food is good, even if nothing exceptional. Disadvantages: open kitchen so lots of fried smell sticking to your clothes and very small place, so practically impossible to have a decent conversation, as during lunch hour tends to get crowded and loud.
