I didn't reserve and had dinner at the bar since the small restaurant was fully booked. I choose the red curry with beef. It was good but too much beef, not enough vegetables. Sounds as heaven to carnivours of course. It was reasonably spicy. Not overdone, not my level but I am not the average in that respect. The lady... More

Cozy interior and a very friendly service. Slightly more expensive ! Much higher taste level ! To lick your thumbs and fingers to the last crumb. This was a true delight. We can not stress enough, this is a must do! (Although, slightly expensive !) Try the Thai beef salade !!!

Brought to you by a Belgian couple ! And more: this is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in town. I give you one example: the chicken in the red curry (my favorite) is backed and glazed on a barbecue before it is served. It is rather spicy, so inform yourself for the not spicy dishes, even if...
