A nice little Thai take-out, restaurant and deliver at home service on the left hand of the Main Road Hout Bay heading towards Chapmans Peak. It's not Katima (also in Hout Bay) nor Erawan in Wynberg, but a lovely Thai food provider at affordable prices. There is off street parking along the roadside and in a square on the right hand side. Additionally, and across the road is another formal parking lot. Helpings generous. Prices fair. Recommended - but we have been told that they are experiencing serious financial difficulties ... so we will continue going there and show our support as their service and food is very good. Very Thai, very nice

From one of my favourite go to Thai Food Stores to a place i shriek everyone i drive by or see a store, I have had many good dishes and many bad, from takeaways to eating in, right now this brand has gone one way and should only go one way, out and down the drain where everything in Cape Town ends up, out at sea and forgotten.

The disregard for customers, the lack of passion in food is seen and tasted, soups are bland, main dishes are either over salted or lack flavour completely, meat portions are at a minimal and you sometimes really have to search food for specks of meat. I would stay far far away and let this brand die quietly.

We were greeted well and decided to eat-in. We ordered a starter to share and then Stir Fried Basil and Stir Fried Cashews - our usual preference - and two glasses of wine.

However the main course arrived with the starter. The starter was cold so we sent it back.

One main course was okay, the other, Stir Fried Basil, contained a small selection of vegetables and NO basil!! Strange we thought.

It seems that the kitchen staff, who can be seen preparing the food behind glass screens, had changed from the usual bunch. The usual Asian nationals, so capable with their own cuisine, were nowhere to be seen!

On settling the bill, the starter had been removed, but the cost of the wine did not correspond with that on the menu!

What was once our favourite Thai takeaway is no longer!

We won’t be returning until we hear any positive reports!

Shame.

Food was tasty however the green and red curry we ordered had about half to a cm of oil sitting on the top which was somewhat offputting.
Cheap eats with plastic tables and chairs.
Functional rather than anything to write home about.
An alternative to the usual pizza, pasta, burger venues around Hout Bay but wouldnt rush back
