This place doesn’t look great, and unfortunately the food wasn’t much better. Possibly my least favourite Mussaman beef I’ve ever had, and I’ve had plenty. Pad Thai was ordinary, the pad see-iw ok.

We enjoyed our meal so much on the first night we went back for our second night. Lovely service, excellent food and very reasonably priced. The meals are large so could easily have shared one between two if only after something light.

Situated in a old house up the street from the Dutch bakery, this restaurant had a good Tomyum soup. Stairs up to restaurant. Chinese food available also. Many Asians dining here which is a good sign.
