This is a little restaurant in a little complex of shops. It is obviously very popular because there were people waiting outside for their takeaway meals. I would strongly recommend booking a table because even at 6pm, the place was packed. Food was very good. Plentiful for two people and extremely tasty. There as a wait for the food to be served and I could look around the restaurant to see it was busy, so that's understandable. The only thing wrong with this place is because it is so small and with a fully packed restaurant, conversation with your guest might be a little difficult. But let that hinder you.
The food is authentic, fresh and top quality. A great atmosphere, takes me back to Thailand :). Service is fast and you are always greeted with a smile, what a hidden gem.
