Thai Restaurant

“We had to wait a while until we were assigned a table, but if you have a place you're fine. And so popular tent. We sat by the window. The food was very tasty and the portions were not too big. Everything went clean. It also took a while before we could settle the bill and leave the restaurant again. The moment we left, there was an even bigger line than when we arrived.
