“Cold, dried-up food and smelly beer”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

So, it's pretty hard to get thai food wrong. But this place managed it. It was cold, dry, flavourless... Even the dog wouldn't eat it.

And the beer smelled and tasted like eggs. The two staff there didn't seem to case when we were asked "is everything ok?" - not really, it's cold and tasteless and this beer tastes funny. "Oh, sorry".... and walked off.

Try harder. This place is in a prime location but that's no excuse to be lazy.

“Best Thai Curry EVER!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

You could quite easily walk past the office down the lanes in Brighton without even realising that it's there. They sell the best thai green curry you will ever eat! It's defo the best place for a Thai in Brighton... in fact I would say anywhere in the U.K! Simply amazing

“Nice food shame about the loo's”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Had lunch there on Sunday 11th Aug, Food was delicious. We all opted for Pad Thai and it was served quickly and there was plenty of it.
However the toilets were disgusting, There were broken floor tiles, The wall tiles were covered in black mildew. The loo roll dispenser was missing off the wall and the place was filthy. My Male companion said the Men's room was in an equally sorry state. Such a shame.

“Working on a tasty, proper dinner at the office”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I went here for Pub Quiz night, and I must say it was fun. This is similar to the Office in San Carlos, CA, but one thing huge, the clientele are better :) The beers are a nice selection. This is a nice stop for a few hours. This is the only office I know of where there is drinking allowed :)
