“real thailand”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

sat night in winchester, no reservation,yummy thai no customers,we were all hungry.dont let the caff style put you off for a nt out,we were pleasantly surprised. The family run restaurant with the real atmosphere of being in thailand with a little boy asleep on a sun lounger, typical mish mash of thai decor,the food was like being in thailand using great ingredients. The family had time to chat and even entertained our baby so i could enjoy the food. Will def go again

“Not what expected - It's very good!”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

At first glance through the windows there's not much to recommend this as a restaurant - it's on the side of a Fish & Chip shop, it has plastic tablecloths and wipe clean menus. BUT the Thai food is freshly prepared, outstandingly tasty and above all very cheap! Only downside is that it doesn't have a drinks license but the proprietor is perfectly happy for you to bring your own from the offy round the corner. A very different experience from most Winchester restaurants and definitely worth a go if you can't get in elsewhere.

“Very tasty and good value”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

I walked in, sat at a table, chose a dish (stir fried chicken with chilli and basil leaves) and almost immediately could hear and smell the dish being stir fried, by the same Thai lady who took my order. Within five minutes I was eating a very fresh and spicy dish full of flavour and lots of fresh veg, green beans, mange tout, spring onion and red pepper. The mug of green tea was an interesting touch but was very pleasant though a teapot would have been nicer.
OK the surroundings are not anywhere that you would take your other half for a romantic meal but for a quick, tasty, good value meal at about a fiver, i was very satisfied.

“Changed hands”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

This seems to have changed hands. Had supper here recently and it was very disappointing. It's not as bad as 1 star, but this is to balance out my other review. I certainly wouldn't rate it higher than a 2 or a 3 now.
