    good when ure feeling hungry. big portions. noodle dishes good. I've had better thai curries. I often order beef with ginger garlic and spring onion. a lot of things on the menu taste very similar.

    Amazing value for money! Food definitely goes way beyond the decor, if you search for delicious thai cuisine and ready to compromise on ambiance, that's the place!

    Brilliant value with loads of options on dish. Seating can be tricky in big groups, but for 1-2 is generally easy. Beef pad Thai is lovely.

    Absolutely amazing. Dumplings are super tasty and any Pad Thai is awesome. Cheap and totally worthy.

    Really tasty Pad Thai, and big portions for very little money. Place is a bit gritty, but I enjoyed the food a lot.

    Huh? As far as I could tell the only reason this place gets such a good rating is because you can get out of there for about £10 a head. But it's completely unauthentic Thai food... not even close.

    Such a great lunch spot. Prices have gone up to £5.50 but still worth it, beef pad thai and chicken green curry are fantastic!

    The best Thai in London.. In fact ever. Get takeaway from here at least once a week.. Pad Thai and dumplings are to die for

    Authentic Thai food. Doesn't feel mass produced. A very busy little place, the downstairs seating is only opened during busy periods.

    Amazing thai restaurant! Great prices. Is a small restaurant and you should probably share table, but it's worthy!

    Kilburn's finest. Cheap and delicious. Spicy prawn crackers and Chicken Satay are essential to every visit.

    BEST EVER Green and red curry, pad Thai, dumplings and spring roll. Skip the money bags and yellow curry
  • Stuart L.
    Super cheap and really good. Gives The Heron a run for its money on Thai food. Very quick service here too.
  • Christiaan H.
    Incredible food, and great value too. It's also BYO with a £1 charge per head.

    Great a little Thai place. Can be a bit crampy and smokey at times but the food is worth it.
  • Yasmin K.
    Good food but unfortunately we we served juice in a 'clean' glass that had chewing gum stuck on it. Waitress didn't really offer an apology but did replace our drink. Could have been managed better

    Great deal if you look for low prices and don't mind mediocre food. If you look for high quality Thai food, look for Yum-D or KaoSarn.

    Having read the reviews of this place earlier today I decided to make a visit tonight. I'm here right now and I'm far from disappointed. It takes a lot to impress me and this place certainly has.

    I am from Thailand and that, unfortunately, was NOT authentic Thai food. It's great value for money that's for sure but I had the spicy prawn noodle and it was extremely sweet. Disappointing.

    If your ordering take away you're gonna have to do it in person, they never pick up the phone.

    I felt this place is overrated here. It is quite cheap alright, but the food was a bit bland and not too good altogether. Also, the restaurant wasn’t very clean.
