We had dinner at this place following a recommendation in a German travel guide and were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was not swarmed with tourists at all. We had red and green currys which were tasty but not outstanding. What really made an impression on me was their Som Tam Thai Papaya salad, which was the best I've tried... More

27 of us in our group yet service was quick and the food we ordered - every one of it did not disappoint. Love especially the red curry! and glutinous rice mango.

I don't understand why this restaurant do not have more customers🤔 Compared to the other that we could find in the street the atmosphere inside is zen. The price is correct compared to the quantity. If you hesitate to come in because it's empty, just don't care and try, you won't be desapointed. Even if you can't stand chili food... More

A restaurant that is owned by a humble Cambodian lady who courageously bought over the business from the previous employer. She had been serving there for many years and leads her staff by example by serving every customer with the same excellence. The food is also good and value for money.

We had a takeaway (delivery) of 2 x pad thai goong and some chicken satay. The pad thai was $5.50 and satay about the same. The pad thai came as a small portion - about half or less than you normally get when ordering pad thai, with only 2 small shrimp per portion. For a basic fried noodle dish, a... More

Nothing really great to shout about. It's your typical Thai restaurant although a little pricey though. Located near the riverside area, walking distance to most lady bars in the area.

A Scottish couple we met at our hotel told us they had just had an incredible meal here so we went the next night...and they were right! Every dish was exceptional and could have been some of the best Thai food we ate on our whole Asia adventure. Highly recommended.

Delicious Thai food, covering all the popular dishes. Always a treat to eat in, or if the circumstances dictate, a big mix of dishes delivered in. The tiger prawns with red curry sauce are amazing.
