Have been in Thailand for a while and finally found this authentic thai cantine. Small restaurant, in a family atmosphere. Good value for money; som Tam:£6.5, khrao niao: 2.5, lab gai:6.5 etc... food is made in front of you everything is fresh. aroy mak khrap.

The food was of average quality but the portion sizes are really very small, we left feeling quite hungry after eating here even though we had starters and mains On this basis it was poor value for money.

The shop front isn't anything to write home about but as soon you walk in you can feel how authentic it is. The family are there all helping out and the kitchen is a tiny open kitchen just like it is in Thailand. I had Pad Se Ew it was delicious and a large serving for a cheap price. Very friendly staff as well! I will be back :)

Having eaten in Paolina's previously, we made a bee line back again, this time with teenage children. As the restaurant is BYO, I nipped down to a nearby shop for a couple of beers which I brought back to have a drink with the meal. We had starters and mains for all four of us along with a couple of soft drinks. The total cost was in the region of £60 - which for central London is simply amazing. The quality of the food is excellent.
The last time we ate here it was late lunch and we were the only diners - but on this occasion by about 8.30pm the restaurant was quite full and had a great buzzy atmosphere.
OK your money is not being spent on wow interior fit-outs - but it is clean and gives off a great vibe when busy. And the food is great.
