This place is a real gem, a bookshop serving fantastic Thai food, nestling in Hastings Old Town. Visited recently for an evening meal with friends and the food was fantastic. A small and simple menu which is very reasonably priced and freshly cooked. Every dish we tried was flavoursome and great. I had the chicken massaman curry and it was... More

This place is an absolute hidden gem. Very quirky book shop set up but very cool. But The food, oh the food, took us both straight back to Thailand. The BEST chicken satay we have ever tasted. Everything made our mouth water. The prices are very very reasonable
