Ordered fresh rolls, papaya salad, stuffed lemongrass chicken. All dishes were so good. Papaya salad is a tad different from the Thais, it is more watery but very spicy.

Great local food. Service was ok. Get there before 6pm if you don’t have a booking. Price is ok but if you want super cheap go somewhere else. Good quality.

Hi Sanfrankate. Sadly, you've missed the transport that takes people from the restaurant to our lakeside cooking school. So it's not really possible to join the class after it has started. It's unfortunate you didn't phone... More
