Went for dinner with a group of primary school mums. Very impressed with the service but even more impressed with the food which was very tasty. Delicious mushroom with coconut milk soup for starters which I would highly recommend followed by a seafood phanaeng curry....More

The food is flawless and the staff are great, you get as close as possible to the authentic Thai freshness. Definitely try the green curry and pad Thai. Best affordable restaurant in Amersham.

Great reception very welcoming timely service followed by hot and tasty dishes. Ooy and her team do a superb job at keeping their diners satisfied and wanting for nothing. I would thoroughly recommend this true Thai restaurant see the photos

Service poor compared to normal and food clearly lacking it normal vibrancy and exciting flavours Normally a good 8 or 9/10 but tonight a poor 3/10. A real shame.

Visited here for lunch due to the reviews. The food was ok, the starters were better than the mains. We found the chicken rubbery/chewy and didn't finish our meals. It's obviously a well known place given the amount of customers however we didn't enjoy the...More

This is the real thing, the Tom Yum soup with prawns (after which the restaurant is named?) was eye-wateringly good! Go for the coconut soup if you can't stand the heat, but I really enjoyed mine, also the Penang curry with duck I had for...More
