“Quirky, Fun and Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Everyone seems to know each other, the owners, cook, their family and all the regulars too. I suppose with it being the size of an average front room, its inevitable everyone would be like old friends.

The food is very good and beautifully presented without being pretentious or too dressy. Its a BYO and, despite having a corkage charge, no one on our table were charged that night. The kitchen is open plan too, which I love (I can see just how clean it is back there!).

Bonus - anything you don't eat, they pack for you to take away so there is no wastage either.

“Don't think twice”

If you are standing outside wondering how it is you should give it a go. The place is what it is but the food and the friendly service will compensate. Exceptional duck.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Some friends love this little restaurant and say all other Thai restaurants pale in comparison so we decided to try it for ourselves and were pleasantly surprised. It's only small, best to book, and they don't serve alcohol (you can bring your own, £1 corkage) but the food was just great. The kitchen is open to the basic dining area so you can watch the fantastic chefs if you want. The food is so fresh and tasty. We had a set menu so that we could try lots of different dishes and we couldn't fault any of them. Be warned, the credit/debit card machine doesn't pick up a signal very well and a few diners, ourselves included, had to pay cash instead (not a problem if you have some on you!).

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

You would never guess from the unassuming outside of this small and very busy restaurant just how fantastic the food is. After ten or more visits and take-always the food is consistently very good. Being vegetarian I can't vouch for the meat dishes, but the veggie ones such as the red curry and tofu are really lovely. The actual restaurant inside and out is pretty basic but somehow that doesn't matter - the atmosphere is always fun and lively, probably helped by Torbay Thai's BYOB policy!
