The vibe is very local and the service is great. The feed was delicious we had the thick rice noodles and the spring rolls, both were great. I really recommend it.

This place is great! A great variety of different styles of Thai food you won't find anywhere else and at a cheap price to boot. I will be coming back to try other dishes before leaving Pai!

A very local restaurant with many options in the menu. Food is good, fruit smoothie is good. It located in the other side of the waking street, walk a little more you will get there.

Thank kiechen
