We were so happy to find this wonderful restaurant at the heart of Russell. The food is so yummy. You can feel the taste, the different food sensation in your mouth. From the green curry chicken, to the pad Thai noodles, the sautéed beef and...More

Dropped in for take away as we’d just arrived in Russell. The restaurant was half full, but the food looked delicious as it was being delivered. Grabbed a beer and waited while ours was cooked. It was tasty and swift. No issues. Would recommend.

I came here with some new friends from Russell. They eat here all the time. The food is excellent. The service can be a little salty. It's not bad, just that the owner (who also serves) is not the overly friendly type. That's okay. The...More

We had a 7:00 PM booking and we walked over from our nearby hotel. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the Penang curry was good

Unspectacular location with excellent authentic food that is served really hot Thai style if you like it. The spring rools and the money bag were absolute fresh and crispy and the ginger chicken and the Pad Kae Mauw were just great. Compliment to the chef!

We ordered a takeaway from here one evening. Not a weekend, in the early autumn when Russell was quite quiet. When they turned up to collect the takeaway apparently it had been given to someone else who didn't see fit to return it, but had...More
