The name means "tea leaf" in Thai and it serves a Southeast Asian menu mainly made up of various kinds of satay, plus a few sandwiches and sides like roti. It functions best as a decent, affordable lunch spot: small and efficient. Best to ignore the rather dismal sandwiches and stick to the satays. The beef is particularly tasty, sliced thinly and grilled in its coconut milk-coriander seed sauce. The red curry chicken version has an appealing spicy richness. You can buy them by the trio with pickled vegetables or as a combo with coconut rice and green papaya salad. As for sides, the flaky, oily, Indian-style roti with a little cup of massaman potato curry is just fine, and could even serve as a very light, cheap lunch.
