Eaten here about 5 times. Very typical old thai restaurant. The food is worth it. I recommend the "gaeng hung leh. Pork and ginger curry. The fermented isaan sausage is great. The sum tom is not that good. I'd go back again.

Title says it all really. Gorgeous tasting noodle soup with chicken pieces instead of the usual drumstick. Would leave the crispy noodles next time though as a bit like twigs :-)
