The soup was very warming and hearty and boy did it pack a punch and a half with a peppery heat that rushes through the whole body. The meat was tender and soft and we did enjoy it but would next time order it with less heat as we couldn't finish it. The waitress did notice or sweats and runny noses though and offered to take it away and bring back a less fiery version but we were already halfway through and it didn't seem right to get a brand new one.
The meatballs were very soft in texture with a crisp crumb - can't remember what meat they were and they went well as a beer snack. Needed the slices of cucumber though to cool the mouth down as again they had an evil spicy sting!
We thought the main courses were pricey for their size. The stirfry was tasty, fresh and vibrant but on the small side. The vermicelli salad was in a very flavoursome and tangy dressing and we enjoyed the textures of the nuts, ground meat and red onion as well as the two large king prawns.
Top kindly offered us a 15% discount for our visit which was nice of him. It's definitely authentic Thai food that has not suffered any Westernisation or dilution which we really appreciated. However we did have very tingly lips and next time we would request things to be not so heavy on the chilli. Having said that we found it very enjoyable and there are definitely other things to try.
