Review: When it's dark you have to hunt for it - knowing the number is a good idea - as it doesn't advertise itself very brightly. There is a big Buddhist carving near the entrance but you can't see it very well in the dark and the sign is backlit and seems like it is hiding. Fairly low lighting continues inside where there are a few seats in the front window area and most seating is behind. There are wood carvings placed around and tables and chairs are dark wood. Table setting continues the restful, Buddhist theme with peach coloured napkins folded in to lotus flowers and when our food arrived we found little ceramic frogs and fishes peeking out on the bowls. There were faces on our plates too, maybe they were nymphs? There is an open kitchen which you can see in to and in the tiling above it there is a big notice which says "NO MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE. We went at around 9pm on a Monday and it was absolutely buzzing. Maybe because so many other restaurants are shut on Monday in Berlin. Lots of people looked like they had just finished work/ were dressed in work clothes but I didn't feel out of place in sweats. The menu has English translation which sometimes came out rather funnily. Maybe the name of the restaurant came about this way too. There are only three designated vegetarian main courses. There are a few more that you can substitute tofu for the meat in. There is a fairly decent wine list to match the food, with quite a few Australian wines listed as well as Spanish, South American, South African wines. I had the green curry which was very good. It had enough varied vegetables and the amount of spice and coconut in it was just right. It was definitely one of the best green curries I have ever had. Service was fairly good, they checked on us periodically though not too much. For two mains and a bottle of wine it came to just under €60. It was good value. This was a good straight Thai restaurant - the menu had regular Thai items on it with just a few of them being vegetarian.
