Unique and flavourful tapas style Thai food. Be prepared to wait for a table.

I love Thai food and tapas and this place hit the spot. You won't find your traditional Thai food such as Pad Thai here; this restaurant serves unique and flavourful tapas style food, perfect for sharing. We got to the restaurant around 8pm on a Saturday night and was told it was an hour wait. We had the option to... more

I came here with my good friend and fellow foodie after she insisted that we eat here rather than anywhere else. She got there very early, like 6pm early - when they open!

I had a Siam Sling to drink, which I will admit I partially... more
