Description: We are a small independent family run business and have been happily serving Broadstairs for nearly 20 years. Previously Da had a small restaurant in Margate, we have been serving Thanet for nearly 27 years. We buy our main ingredients fresh daily and try to use as much fresh produce as possible. All our food is cooked an prepared fresh to order.

This was really delicious food. Every dish was tasty and distinctive...great value too, especially as you can take your own booze. We went on a Thursday night and the place was full so don't forget to book...but book..and go!!

Visited on a Friday evening while in Broadstairs. Fantastic service, relaxed atmosphere and the most amazing authentic Thai food, freshly prepared to order with fresh ingredients. Da, the owner, was lovely and very welcoming; popping out of the kitchen to say hi to all the diners and to check all was okay with our orders. Great little place, with amazing food and excellent service.

We came here on Saturday night, initially to find our reservation crossed out but this was quickly sorted by the waiter. The set menu is an absolute cracker, great value and with the BYOB is an absolute steal. 100% coming back.

Another restaurant on our 'to do' list finally visited! Beautiful, authentic Thai food cooked by the adorable Da! A small and cosy restaurant (think around 24 covers?!) the decor is a bit tired but you know what it didn't matter, there's a great feel to this place, almost like eating at someone's house :) the staff are beyond friendly, very attentive and welcoming.
The menu is extensive, where do you begin?! They offer a set menu but we ordered individually, I had a chicken green, my partner the chicken red, both delicious (if not a bit safe!) Plus we had egg fried rice. Generous portions so we were glad we didn't do starters (these looked amazing though!)
Not licensed so took along our own alcohol (which we didn't have to pay corkage on) they offer 2 sittings, 6.45pm and 9.00pm this to me is the only downside as ideally I like to eat around 7.30-8, I appreciate it's the only way it can work in such a small place so I forgive them!
Will definitely return as need to try more from the menu:) the cost of our meal? Less than £15!!!! You can't get a kebab for that! Would highly recommend.

The service was terrific and ready as soon as you needed it. Waiter was very attentive and pleasant. Small but roomy restaurant takes about 24 covers without being squashed in like some places. Wall has notice about gluten so they are aware but check on phone to be sure. We had our anniversary meal there and were very pleased with surroundings, but maybe not ultra romantic. Food cooked perfectly with a good selection and wonderful taste. Recommended highly, we will go back and take friends. Lunch and business better phone and check. Appears to be a family business so that's why you get the best food. A plus is that you take your own drinks so that can save you loads compared to other restaurants (including alcoholic) and the best clue about a good restaurant is repeat business. The staff seemed to know nearly all the customers eating and greeted them as they entered through the front door. Say no more! Go there, if you like Thai you won't be disappointed .
