Very spicy, down-home Thai cuisine is what draws the customers here, with a wide-ranging menu that includes standards like curries, noodles and spicy salads, plus many dishes from the Isan region of northern Thailand. We'd recommend a thorough perursal of the menu (in Japanese and Thai), paying special attention to the page of chef's recommendations.

Most dishes are priced in the Y700-800 range, similar to those popular Thai chain shops in town, but the food is definitely a cut above. If you're not in the mood for beer, Spanish wine runs Y1800 a bottle; budget around Y2500 for dinner and drinks.

(Note: the restaurant was formerly located in an ancient underground arcade next to Asakusa subway station.)
