Restaurant was empty when others around were fully booked (suspicious, doesn't it?). Expensive menu (14-18 euros per main dish and 8 euros average for soup/starter/dessert). Drinks served in cans/plastic bottle and really expensive (1 bottle of still water was 8 euros!!) Waitress was not friendly and when we asked for the receipt (a handwriting paper) she replied that we were... More

The soups and duck curry are the best we have ever had. The service is spectacular! Cash only. You will be glad you tried this place!

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!
