We ate here after reading some great reviews on tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. We booked out table in advance as the restaurant is so popular and small its fully booked well in advance. Service was a little slow but we were given a small selection of starters to tide us over which we thought was a nice touch. Another great... More

Our special night at Smile was sooo great we can't wait to return. Make sure you book as it gets soo busy, the amazing French owner is one of the most vibrant and welcoming hosts we have encountered and speaks to all the dining guests personally. His Thai wife and her team are exceptional chefs. It was pouring outside unexpectedly... More

Lovely, busy place, made all the more special by the fabulous owner, proprietor. He could not have been more helpful. You are shown the food before making your choice and they have house specials. Not overly expensive and good fresh fusion food. Not typical Thai.
