A great little Thai restaurant and takeaway. Brilliant value, down to earth food and no frills. I eat here regularly and am never disappointed. Personal favs include the tom kha soup, jungle fried rice and Phuket Boy (whole fried fish). But I doubt you could go too wrong with anything on the menu. It's all just honest, tasty dishes served...

The only place in Brighton where I get my Thai food fix. Unusual set up but all adds to its charm. Amazing authentic food every time.

One of our favourite Thi places in the whole of Brighton, without a doubt. Fresh food cooked right in front of your eyes, tastes delicious and very yummy;)

I found this place a couple nights ago looking for a decent Asian takeaway, I couldn't believe the picture, the place is so small that you need to get in to the kitchen to reach the toilets, old tiny kitchen and a elderly couple running the place, my respects to the chef, amazingly tasty food, the lady on the till,...

The same menu and I believe the same prices. Never fails to offer a good cheap meal. Extensive menu from scratch. It is a 'soup' kitchen. Usually get talking to fellow regulars. Good for eating solo. Quick service. Busy take away but somehow tastes better in house! Closes early and mid afternoon. Open on Sundays which is useful. Highly recommended.

I've been here on several occasions and I love it. It's a bit strange but byo booze and great Thai food go well together. It's a friendly place and nothing is too much trouble. The bathroom is a mystery and I think it's actually belonging to a flat above but I'm not sure! Importantly the food is good and service... More

We arrived not long after opening and it was just as well - it's only a small place and it filled up pretty quickly. After tasting the food, it was not hard to see why it was so popular, it was delicious and the portions were so large we asked for a doggy bag to take the rest home. My... More
