Been hearing about this place for awhile. Had to go early to snag a table.
Finally food was ok. Actually had to send the seabream back it wasnt cooked through.
Plus sat by the door table each time someone enters or exits feels like the wall is going to come down.

We tried to come here a couple times and they had a two hour wait...so arrived at 5pm on a Sunday. Really liked the laid back, colorful vibe. Staff is really friendly. Menu is legit authentic...no pad thai and spring rolls here people. Food was good, some dishes were tear inducing spicy. Some dishes had some pretty unusual ingredients, like gelatinous beef tendons, pork intestines, etc. So overall, good, but wouldn't wait two hours!

Saturday afternoon lunch and a few beers. Food is pretty good but not for everyone. Not your standard Thai fare.
Service is a bit messy but the overall experience was good.

Wonderful slim restaurant with hot and tasty dishes from tiny kitchen. The door isn't hung properly so when you sit by the window the door causes the entire wall to shake, so beware, We took a chance and there was a line waiting close to 5:PM. Then cars drove up and dropped off hipsters with cell phones. The restaurant has a row of tables for two then one precarious one for 4 near the window. we got that one and squeezed in our 5th guest. considering the rush at capacity at 5PM the menus and drinks came fast and food came about 15 min later one by yummu one arrived. Hot and spicy and warming. each flavor stood out. Malaysian. Thai. Curries. Fresh and good. enough to share so beware when ordering.. This place can give Pok Pok a run for its money, although Pok Pok is just a good and welcome in an Asian starved area.

This place is not in the most central part of Carroll Gardens, but reachable and worth the effort. We were lucky and were able to sit quickly. The waiters, very friendly, were a little forgetful but helpful. My wife can't take too much spices and they were able to steer her to dishes that were hot, but not too! Tue Ka Ko was a safe bet and very good. Kao Tod Nam Klook was very good as was Kah Moo Palo. A perfect lunch and worth the search!
