Very small establishment - the food was excellent, and very spicy & authentic. It was fully booked - but if you are prepared to wait for a table well worth it. Service was slow, but all the tables we full. the only down side of this place is that it is smoking at any of the tables

Lovely restaurant, excellent menu regarding choice and price, I had the beef Khao Soi since I live in Chiang Mai was eager to try it and was not disappointed, it was delicious well seasoned, noodles cooked to perfection and not oily like some coconut oil foods can be at times. Service was attentive and enthusiastic, and nothing was too much... More

We both love Thai food and really enjoyed eating here. My favourite dishes were pad Thai, stir fry chicken with cashew nut and red curry, it's supposed to be with fish but we asked for chicken and they accommodated us. I also loved the mango cocktails, I had a lot of them. ☺

Decided to try this one out after reading the reviews. I think that the lone one star review was out of line. Food is good, maybe not as authentic as in Thailand but then again, we're in Japan now. Atmosphere and service was very nice. Also good level of English spoken by the waiters. They even have a tuk-tuk at... More

Was a relief to have a decent Thai. The green curry was great and the coconut ice cream topped up the experience nicely. The place is close to the very high, spider-like building, as well as several malls - so a digestive walk can be carried out.

I like going back to restaurants that I've had good experiences at in the past and this is one of my favorites. Now that I'm back in Osaka, the group and I made it here on my second night in town. It was just as good as the last time and now that it's been a week, I'm looking forward... More

I came to this restaurant several times when I lived in Osaka and no other Thai restaurant compares. Unless service and the chefs have changed drastically since last May, I definitely recommend paying a visit to this nicely decorated restaurant that has delicious and, I believe, authentic Thai food. I have never had a disappointing meal or bad service here.... More
