Very tasty food for a reasonable price If you order take away do it early as it is so popular at weekends you might wait a while. Love the pad that.

Great little cafe that serves excellent Thai food. Food is cooked in an 'open' kitchen in front of you and as lovers of Thai food - this is excellent. Also caters for take-aways.

Good food with great tastes, if you want it hot all you have to do is ask! If you like it mild, again, just ask! Order and collect or sit and eat in or out...we enjoy eating here and often just get a take away and eat at home.

We went here when we arrived in Hout Bay. Didn't want to book anywhere incase the flight was delayed. Great place- very friendly. Lovely food and very busy with take aways. We weren't disappointed- and we will be back next year!

With a house full of visitors over the festive season we resorted to Thai take aways from the Hout Bay branch a few times. We (regular visitors to Thailand included) all declared it good quality and had exceptionally pleasant service. However, we also found that prices had risen pretty steeply. Seems to be my high Season lament about Cape Town... More

Visited twice on holiday. First time a take-away then a second eat-in with the family. On both occasions, the food was really well cooked and flavoured. It was inexpensive and fast, and I would definitely have visited again if we'd had the time. Highly recommended for a yummy dinner. If you like really hot food, request your dishes "Thai style"...

Thank rb2000
