    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

    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.

    Fantastic value Thai food (a full meal will set each person back about £5.50), BYOB and gets packed after 7pm. Food tastes authentic too just like what you'd get in Thailand.

  • Andrew M.

    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.

  • Nina S.

    Best Thai ever. Ok to sit in for a quick meal but they thankfully do awesome takeaway and delivery (not all the time so check hours).

    Nina Scherer · July 3, 2015
  • Thomas P.

    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.

    Thomas Pajor · October 13, 2015
  • Ayan Ö.

    They brought wrong meals. It was nothing like we expected. So disappointing. And we found an eyelash in the food. This restaurant may be was a nice place once. Not anymore.

    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!

    Adam Palmer · December 17, 2014
  • Diego C.

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

    I tried the chicken pad see eew, I would not recommend making a special effort to go there. My dish was too salty and the noodles used were not fresh noodles.

    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.

  • Emily M.

    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

    Emily Meacher · March 26, 2013
  • Jonas V.

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

    Jonas Voss · November 8, 2015
  • Emma C.

    BEST EVER Green and red curry, pad Thai, dumplings and spring roll. Skip the money bags and yellow curry

  • Luciana C.

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

    Luciana Caltabiano · November 7, 2015
  • Will B.

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

    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.

    Great a little Thai place. Can be a bit crampy and smokey at times but the food is worth it.
