“Unpleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We went there following the suggestion of one thailandese friend. It was a weekly day. At 7 o clock it was already crowded. We took the mix appetiser to start. The food was super hot (microwave? Maybe). I had to soak my tongue in the glass of water for few minutes. The quality was not very good. Same things for the main curses. Big portions but no quality. I suggest this place for a reunion with the old mates from the elementary school. Cheap alcohol, poor quality big quantity of the food.

“Great good value food”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I visited on a very busy Thursday evening around 6.30 PM. There is a good selection of vegetarian food on the extensive menu. The crispy bean curd was good and my wife enjoyed the chicken satay to start. Good size portion mains and the 3 chili hot meal was indeed hot, with a tasty side of stir fried vegetables. Overall, <£20 a head for 3 starters, 2 mains, 1 side and a couple of drinks!

“High Quality at a Good Price”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Went with a few colleagues and had a wide variety of dishes: the imperial platter allowed everyone to sample several different starters - all well prepared, seasoned and presented. Other highlights included the Tom Yum Fried Noodles and Pad Thai. Bustling restaurant can inhibit quiet conversations but it didn't detract from our experience. Service was speedy with everything delivered piping hot. Recommended.

“Good value in a high value area”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Four of us meet here and had an average Thai meal by London standards. On the plus side the service is fast, the staff are pleasant and the Mussaman curry was very tasty. The bill with drinks worked out at £22 a head which is good value for London. On the minus side the contents of the Thai mixed starter platter was very greasy and seemed to have been deep fried some time earlier. Most unappetising. Our two seafood dishes were OK but the stir fried duck with ginger was tasteless and seemed to use pre cooked duck stirred into a tasteless thin sauce. Disappointing. The restaurant decor is basic but even on a Monday night the place was very busy so it seems to be popular with local residents and workers.

“Fast fast food!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I struggle to find Thai near home so thought we would enjoy whilst in the city! After reading some reviews in this place I was expecting speedy service but wow. Our drinks had literally arrived when they brought our dishes. We ordered the jungle curry and a rice noodle dish (the only one with 3 heat stars)! We were asked on ordering if we like hot food.... The jungle curry was great (a good madras heat) the noodles were on another level. I had head spin, watering eyes and runny nose. Took at least 20 mins to stop sweating. Not as good as other Thai places we've been but very reasonably priced for the city.
