A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Murales de influencia oriental y toques divertidos, como lámparas hechas a partir de sartenes wok, crean el ambiente perfecto para disfrutar de una cocina global.. En la carta, se fusiona la tradición thai con influencias internacionales en platos como los rollitos cien por cien vegetarianos o el satay de pollo, con una salsa que invita a rebañar el plato hasta dejarlo limpio. Ojo al dato: todas las salsas que se sirven son caseras y algunas llevan horas y horas de preparación.

La fiesta de sabores sigue con platos como curry verde de mar, los baos con una propuesta extrajugosa, rellena de panceta confitada en caldo cantonés o un delicioso Pad Thai. Su amor eterno por Tailandia se deja ver en el Singapore chili crab, mientras que el paseo asiático continúa con el tataki de salmón. De lo que la carta no avisa es de que son sabores que crean adicción.

INSIDER tip

Su postre es todo un mess (enredo) delicioso, hecho a partir de helado y fruta fresca.

    Uno de los mejores Thais de Madrid sin lugar a dudas! Bao de panceta súper rico. Chili Crab de locura. Curry verde de categoría. Y los que nos quedó por probar.. Repetiremos!

    Interesting combinations of flavors and textures. Different choices between seafood, lamb, pork and vegetables. Portions big enough to share. Will come back.

    I-NE-NA-RRA-BLE!! Chef, Maître, cocineros y Luis Miguel (el súper amable camarero que nos atendió), todos, para enmarcar! Coqueto lugar decorado con mucho gusto, musicón de fondo (soul, jazz, rock) a un volumen perfecto y, como colofón, LA CARTA: desde los aperitivos al postre incluida una muy buena botella de blanco Godello, a un precio fantástico porque la calidad (y cantidad) se paga. Cada plato, maravillosamente descrito por Luis Miguel, te teletransporta a un mundo de sabores y aromas ‘Thai’ perfectamente ensamblados. Sólo con la presentación y la descripción se te hace la boca agua... IMPERDIBLES el tartar de vieiras, langostinos y aguacate, los dos baos de panceta y el negro de langostinos panko, para repetir una y mil veces (los mejores que probé hasta ahora y llevo muchos a mis espaldas) así como el Singapore Chili Crab con su mermelada de curry, para llorar... De verdad, un lujo de comida y de atención para volver hasta completar toda su carta. LARGA Y PRÓSPERA VIDA para EL FLACO!!!

    Es sencillamente fantastico. Un servicio excelente y unos platos impresionantes. El curry verde es fabuloso y esta vez probamos el chilli crab que es, literalmente, para no parar de chuparse los dedos. Una manera de viajar por asia, pero sin salir de Madrid.

    I was so glad to see the old crew back. As always they were professional and caring. The restaurant observed and respected protocols that made me feel safe amidst the ongoing pandemic. I truly enjoyed my food while eating at the restaurant.
