A good meal, reasonably priced with really friendly staff. Clearly a very popular place which was fully booked but we had previously reserved a table.

Superb Thai food in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. I think this is the best Thai food in Margate. It is all cooked freshly and the dips and chutney are all homemade. Can't wait to go back.

Endlessly searching for a place to eat on a busy Saturday and came across this place. It proved a haven for our party of seven. Delicious Thai food, freshly cooked, good quality including pea fritters on special. Reasonably priced and excellent service.

We had an absolutely delicious meal here. The food is some of the best Thai we've had: tasty and cooked to perfection. The service was warm and efficient, and the restaurant offers great value for money in a comfortable but unpretentious setting. Would certainly recommend!
