It had been a long time since I had eaten Pad Thai, one of my favourite, basic Thai dishes. On arrival at Padbok Thai, I thought it looked closed! But it turned out to just be really unkempt and untidy. All staff wore plain clothes...More

An unpretentious restaurant that lacks in atmosphere but the great food, excellent prices and friendly staff more than make up for it. Excellent authentic Thai food, well prepared, good portions and great taste!

If you are looking for Thai dishes that are the real deal, this is the place. No fusion dishes in sight, and they even sell imported Singha beer. Phad thai is really good, as well as the appetizers (spring rolls,dumplings). For dessert try the fried...More
