Time Out Says

This humble, street-side Thai restaurant, based in the heart of Gudaibiya (down the road from JJ’s Irish restaurant), serves some seriously good, authentic Thai street food for a very reasonable price. You’ll find all the classics are present and correct, from Tom Yum soup to Som Tam salad, and plenty more besides. Plus there are Thai variations on iced coffee and tea. Everything tastes fresh, flavourful and fearsomely spicy (although you can request less kick). And your friendly servers come armed with plenty of suggestions and tips on handling that spice. It’s an easy place to spot, thanks to the bright green signage and waterfall windows.
