A simple take away come restaurant and certainly nothing more than that. But the food is good, well priced and the chef will cook your order as spicy as you like. Simple but pleasing.

Plenty of food. We thought it more Chinese than Thai. Good service and good prices by our European standards. A good break from the ubiquitous burgers and pizza. Thanks

Lovely food, and friendly staff. We always visit this cafe when in Stellenbosch. We also do take aways. Prices have gone up, but are still reasonable. Worth trying.

Located across from the library, this little restaurant was just what we needed for a quick, but pleasant meal, after a long day of sight seeing. The waitress was friendly and the food pleasingly presented.
