My family and I have been eating in Som Thai for over six years now, and love it. Food is like in Thailand, very much "home made". I ate there last night; green curry absolutely not from a packet, aubergines in spicy sauce, wonderful soup with fresh rice noodles (not on the menu). Wine selection is limited but good. Please...

Love this place as it feels really authentic. Thai kitchen, not Softened for Western Taste. The Papaya Salad was super hot and delicious, and my favourite are the vegetarian noodles a la chef, which are also super spicy. Great little hidden gem.

The food at this little restaurant is amazing - very authentic (my husband went to Thailand 15 years ago, he says this is the only Thai place that's given him food flashbacks), and so very spicy if you're not careful! The rice pancakes are amazing, as is the spicy seafood soup. Our main courses were lovely too, I had paprika... More

Authentic small Thai restaurant with great traditional food. Hosted by very friendly owner. Lunch time can be busy, best to go in evening. Open plan kitchen where the food is freshly made. The beef and chicken salads for starters are definitely recommendable!

food is delicious, prepared by a Thai couple. Not the cheapest, but always consistently well prepared. Drinks are a expensive, but once in a while going there is nice when you have a craving for fresh thai
