This is authentic, great food that will have taste buds tingling. It is difficult to get here, but is worth the effort. The food is diverse and so many options on the menu that it can make ordering difficult. The Mackerel heads were brilliant, really...More

Nothing to shout about this place. The YouTube videos and other celebrities just oversold this place. Price is steep compared to other restaurants. wasted trip here. And chef was no where to be seen when we were there. So another false advertisement.

I do not understand all the raving comments. I visited with bunch of Thai locals who were all underwhelmed by their food. I think you all need to get out and eat more Thai food.
