We regularly eat here with family, visitors or just as a couple. We love the staff, the food, the atmosphere. Just want everyone else to know.

My friend and I happened to be in the area looking for somewhere for dinner and came across A day in BKK. A cosy little restaurant in the strip shopping centre of Chelsea. The menu was extensive with everything you'd expect to see on a Thai menu. The food was fresh and the servings were well sized. The wine list... More

First time there after reading the reviews, the local residents would believe this food to be excellent but anyone who travels for really good food might not.

We love our Thai cuisine and have frequented many in the area over many years. This was the first time we had been here and while it was ok, it wasn't amazing. We were seated on a table on a landing and my chair leg kept falling off the edge. The decor is cheap and unauthentic and staff weren't overly... More

We ended up here on a Monday evening simply because every other restaurant in the area was closed. What a wonderful accident- this place is a treasure. It's small and exudes a real sense of family intimacy. I guess you would be advised to book on busier evenings. The menu is pleasingly varied and has a number of unusual items... More

Great food, well presented and reasonably priced. This little unassuming restaurant is a gem. The wines were also reasonably priced and good quality. Will definitely be back.

Make this little unassuming restaurant high on your 'must go' list, gorgeous authentic mixed Asian food, fresh produce, wonderful selection, great service... Deco & furniture nothing special, but the food, service and ambiance well makes up for it. Go, go go... You will love it
